SETTING UP A FISH TANK USING ONLY SPARE PARTS

SETTING UP A FISH TANK USING ONLY SPARE PARTS


Let me preface this video real quick and let you guys know that this is all footage from About three weeks ago. As you guys know, I did go to Vidcon And I filmed this right before I left to Vidcon and I filmed my intro, which I guess is now *not* my intro, because *this* is the intro, But you’re still going to see that other intro after this intro. I filmed it on the road. So don’t want to confuse you guys. I’m not traveling. I am back at home, but some of the stuff I talked about is like wait, where are you? Confusion kind of thing so without further ado, here’s the video hello I’m on the road currently driving to California with some of my animals I am going to Vidcon and I am bringing some of my animals with me For that and a few other events that we have going on and just because obviously I’m wanting to move to California at some point, and I’ve said this a lot I don’t know when that’s happening, but I do know that every time I’ve been to California I haven’t had my animals with me So I just kind of wanted to get a feel of what it would be like Being here in California doing the things that I do in, California With my animals and just seeing how the trip goes like test driving the road trip there because I’m gonna have to road trip it with All my animal hoping that everything goes completely Smooth no bumps in the road so far everything’s been ok but I just wanted to put out a little Different video for you guys today. The video that I’m going to be putting out today isn’t really about my trip it’s actually about what I did before my trip. You see before I hit the road I went to petco and My mom fell in love with some of the fish there and she was like come on Let’s build a betta sorority tank, so I was like Okay, sounds good pretty easy really low maintenance after deciding that I was going to build one I also decided that I was going to use only the products I had in my own home already, but I wasn’t going to buy anything for them in addition Now this may kinda sound awful like ‘oh my God you’re going to give them the worst life ever’ But I think you guys will be impressed with what I was able to come up with Using only what I had in my house already including the tank. I didn’t even buy a new tank or anything for them I didn’t buy a single thing, didn’t buy a heater didn’t buy a filter didn’t buy anything. I just use the miscellaneous products I have in my house and, it came together pretty well Of course this has to be at literally the bottom. That’s great. Yeah I have backup items for just about every animal you could possibly imagine in here Here’s three cages all stacked on top of each other there is another tank right there It’s a 60 gallon And I think there are some tanks inside of that tank. Dog kennel, another tank right there all of these are small animal supplies There’s another tank. This is all aquarium stuff It’s blazing hot out here, and I need to get to the bottom so that’s going to be really really fun It’s so hot I hate Texas. So we have a canister filter there that I’m actually probably going to replace the hang on back with I would use something like this, but there’s holes in it And I’m afraid the beta’s will go in there and like never come out. Don’t even know what that is. Giant power heads What is that? Oh, that’s literally a tank, okay. Another tank down here. This could maybe work. Light Thinking it would probably be like bare minimum, but I literally have a freaking pet store in my garage they probably thought like you know trying to make a betta tank out of what I already own and Very moist in here. I hate that word. Another filter, more lights. This is like a $60 light right here Let’s see what’s in this one while we’re out here. Oh, okay? This is like $100 light. Hopefully this one floats, betas like to hide in things that float This is another one So maybe we won’t use it More filters, all right. Remind me to never buy a filter again, I literally have enough filters for 30 more fish tanks Eventually… Okay, so it is now time to add the betta fish. The tank is all good to go. Eventually… Plants, but with this setup of course I used what I had on hand and I didn’t have any so, I just did sand. When you’re doing a planted tank it’s best to use some kind of substrate that is specifically for Plants, but with this setup of course I used what I had on hand and I didn’t have any so, I just did sand. But I did happen to have some plant tabs that you put in the substrate below wherever the plant is and it has some nutrients And good things for them, so I did use that in the future I probably will change up the substrate best for plants if I decide to continue to put live plants in this tank So I’m going to go ahead and release them. They are going to have to establish a pecking order which means they’re probably going to fight a little bit. So, don’t be alarmed if you see them nipping at each other But you know if a month goes by, and they’re still doing it, I would be a little concerned There we go, all four, and they probably have no clue what to do because they’ve been in a cup their whole life They are going to have to establish a pecking order which means they’re probably going to fight a little bit. So, don’t be alarmed if you see them nipping at each other But you know if a month goes by, and they’re still doing it, I would be a little concerned There we go, all four, and they probably have no clue what to do because they’ve been in a cup their whole life Thank you guys so much for watching They’re bad. I’ve never known that. Someone very nicely just you know let me know. “Hey, just look into it Maybe you’ll see what you know. Maybe it’s not the best thing” so I did and yeah, I can’t decide right now I’m kind of on it. My betas aren’t fighting. They’re all fine They don’t even flare up anymore when they see each other, they don’t you know puff up and put their little gills out to look They’re bad. I’ve never known that. Someone very nicely just you know let me know. “Hey, just look into it So although this video shows me setting up a beta sorority tank I’m kind of on it. My betas aren’t fighting. They’re all fine They don’t even flare up anymore when they see each other, they don’t you know puff up and put their little gills out to look Scary they all seem fine to me, but sources online say that the betta fish are stressed in this situation So although this video shows me setting up a beta sorority tank Please please do your own research before coming to the conclusion that you want to do that I would recommend no less than 20 gallons for a beta sorority tank Squarespace for sponsoring this video.

  1. sorry if this video felt a little rushed!! My editing program was giving me troubles tonight.
    love you guys and thank you for watching!! 😇❤

  2. Would you be able to give me a couple of those filters wow I have an empty fish tank and everything in it besides a filter but no fishes

  3. Thats so cool! In NZ (where I live) in each pet store (near me) there are only ever like, 4 female bettas, and 4 males, and they each have their own little tank (about 1 liter) and it has plants and stones and they are always super colourfull happy looking fish

  4. Honestly living in CA has serious downsides. Like so many pets are ilegal. You'd have to leave your axolotl and hedgehogs behind

  5. funny thing is I have. A fluval 7 gallon filter for a 50 gallon ND I ahve the smallest filter and fish tank as you in this video lol

  6. Back in my country we call them fighting fish because they’re very aggressive like hella aggressive and they fight like roosters. Well that’s because they were train to do so. Some owners barely feed them and put them in the bottle like here in America close to their opponents for weeks I think. Same with breeding they put them on a bottle for weeks until both pair are calm and ready to mate.

  7. If there are two males in there they will fight but if one male or less then they will need pecking order then you are fine

  8. I have a weird betta that is named Jelly… the pet store named him. He’s always grumpy and sleeps all day just literally hanging in the drift wood and pretends dying like seriously that scared me a lot and I found out that he was just sleeping. I like have 5 bettas but 2 recently passed away out of diseases.

  9. Nice build. Obviously most folks won't have spare parts lying around but it is amazing how cheap you can get a used setup, you just have to make sure the tank isn't scratched or have leaks. Bought one from my LFS that turned out to be scratched up beyond belief. You have to see the vid to see how bad it is. I swear someone tried scrubbing the tank with steel wool.

  10. I had beta fish when I was 6. They stayed in a 3 gallon tank that was divided I had 2. My parents just listened to the pet store employees. Now I feel really bad. They probably had a horrible 2 years. Omg I am the worst person alive.

  11. Really nice video, thanks for the advices !

    Here's my new tank for my 3 fantails (so so so excited) :

  12. Any Aquarist worth her/his salt (see what I did there) would have plenty of spare equipment to setup a new tank. I could probably set up 3 or 4 easily without spending a dime.

  13. Brown algea and cloudy water is driving me nuts!! I have super fine sand so I can decide if my waters cloudy from the sand or just not clean water, what treatments do you all use for freshwater/cichlids?

  14. GIRL I thought I had a lot I have a 2.5 gallon a 5 gallon,and a 1.5 gallon with a hiding rock a no fishing sign gravel and a filter (these are spare items)

  15. I love my sorority! I used to only want male bettas but my sorority is one of my favs now. I still have a lot of males too, 10 of them. Good job on putting it all together with all your stuff laying around. Spending nothing is awesome 😊

  16. How big is that fish tank?Also could I put 4 bettas in a 10 gallon fish tank?What plants do you recommend for a starter that doesn’t require a lot of special care?I want a moss ball but do I need to sew it on to a log or anything?

  17. So my mom when I first got my new betta Mercy she got a half gallon tank, so I researched it and it said it need a 5 gallon so I told her and she said a 5 gallon was too much so we compromised with a 2.7 gallon I’m sorry I couldn’t get more space for him but it’s an improvement right

  18. Dont worry I'm getting there, I have 2 cats, 1 betta, 2 crabs, a snail, angel fish tetras, hatchet fish, a moss ball if you want to consider that live, and a shark and I'm about to get a turtle.

  19. You don't use "pre-cycled water." You need cycled media from another tank. The bacteria doesn't just float around in the tank.You're the largest petcare channel on YouTube and you still don't know how aquarium cyclind works?

  20. I had 3 betas in a 2 gallon tank they were all females and they were fine but I don't recommend it I have stop having betas and now I only have tropical fish such as angel fish, discus fish, blue tang, cow fish and lots of tetras now obviously I have seperet tanks for each of them besides angel fish and discus fish

  21. Just give them more cover come up more floating plants and places to hide. Successful beta sororities usually have a ton of plants and cover. But if yours aren’t fighting or freaking out then they’re probably going to be fine.

  22. Wish you well in your fight. Stay strong ,get better,and dump anyone who is keeping you from becoming whole again. Hope to see new videos soon. Keep up the good fight and there are always open ears, arms to help wherever you need.

  23. Omg your So lucky u have like a million Good filters and I’m over here with a tetra filter lol I’m grateful I even have a filter
