This fellow has a few cool projects, I like the TV Fish Tank- A friend of mine had a broken television, and for whatever reason, I decided I should make it into a fish tank. As a word of warning to anyone who may attempt something similar, this project has been a little difficult, mostly because I’ve never built a fish tank before, and it’s hard to get something that looks good and is also capable of holding 120 lbs of water. It’s easier if you use a smaller tv. Link.

    I did something akin to this once. It was pretty sweet until the seal broke and water cascaded down my made-of-particle-board-and-you-know-what-happens-to-that-stuff-when-it-gets-wet dresser.

    That is a fun looking fish tank! I bet it would be tough to clean. I know the fish tank I have takes a while to clear the algae. I can’t imagine that one.
    I’ve built some tunnel systems for the fish, but this aquarium is kewl.
