At some point in the future I'd like to make one of the old floor model t.v.s into a tank, but just finishing college and living in an apartment I will eventually move out of, I don't want to do this yet.

I'd like to ATTEMPT to make one out of a 13 inch television my mom has laying around in her garage. I figure it will be the equivelant of a 2.5 or possibly 5 gallon tank, so I would only have a betta in there, but I'd still like to give it a try. Everything I found on the internet is about the big floor models. Has anyone tried it with anything else? And/or could anyone give me some general advice?

Ive seen a few around on the net very cool idea.Basically take everthing out of tv and build or find a tank that will fit inside ,filter and lights have to be inside too to complete the illusion.Water level should be above the visible screen area too. post some pics if you do it. very cool project.
Waiting will fill

I attempted a big one quite a while back after seeing Eric Olsen`s on his site (www.thekrib.com). I ditched the project though. It won`t come cheap and there`s alot of work involved. If you`re ready for it though, I`d suggest dropping him an email.

The fish tank in a tv sounds cool, but if you can do a remote control that switches it from fresh to brackish to salt to reef on the touch of a button, now that would be REALLY cool!

Naw But a remote that turns on and off the lights would be cool...

Hahaha, and a fast fwd button to speed up cycling. And a pause so you can take an easy photo without your fish moving.
Just smile and nod - Im used to it...
