Interesting and fun project, but seemed to be overly complicated. I wonder, why at that point, if you are going to build a large tank outside, why only 500g and such an odd shape at that? Either way, good for him if it works out

Crazy as it is, it's impressive that he built that whole thing himself and it worked.

I like how he kept saying, I had this laying around. lol A little bit of this, little bit of that and voila, a tank! lol It's pretty impressive but... wow. It did seem really complicated.

Yeah, I really wanted to know why he used that 45 degree angle in that corner. I would have though a straight "[" shape woould have been better and far easier.

I hope he doesn't live anywhere prone to stormes, that lot seemed very wooded and one largish tree branch will ruin that guys day

It must be awesome to have a tank big enough for schooling.

A few of my favorite pics.

The copper heat transfer coil.


The kitchen stove burner/heater.


Transmission radiator cooler and bug zapper/auto feeder.

When I read that I practically spit my coffee out laughing so hard. The title really does fit this writeup.
