GREENHOUSE UPDATE!!! Aquariums always looking great


what’s up fish tank people
dustinsfishtanks bringing it to you with the video on why I need to move out of
this greenhouse how’s everybody doing I hope you’re doing well in today’s video
I’m gonna run through some of the problems we’re having in this wonderful
green house right here we’re gonna talk about some of the pros some of the cons
and some of the next steps for starters I want to talk about when this green
house was constructed some of you longtime followers know this green house
was constructed back in 2012 when my wife actually went out to Vegas with her
friends yes I am a firm believer in asking for forgiveness instead of
permission quicklink surrounding a check out more on the construction of this
green house originally here’s what I’m doing I’m measuring it out I got 12 foot
with my ghetto measuring with my garden hose call it 12 feet boom – boom over
here leaving a little space against the property line running it back this is I
think 20 feet all the way back I measured it out so I’m just trying to
like get a feel for what size I’m trying to do here now some of you I appreciate
I forget your user name but the guy that said I’ll make it 10 to 20 10 to 15%
bigger that was good advice because we’re totally going bigger go big or go
home right so that’s what I’m doing guys when you’re a father and you put one of
these things on but they’re really handy to get stuff done around the house
yeah and that right – here’s what’s up a lot a lot of great feedback and by the
way I’m still live making this video wife is back from Vegas didn’t kill me I
didn’t sleep out here last night although I’m so excited about I thought
about it her initial reaction she actually like she’s seen me do so many
bush-league projects that kind of stunk is there like Don half-ass that she was
actually impressed with how this is coming along now don’t get it twisted
she’s still pissed that the kids can’t play in the backyard and basically like
the dog and the two kids get dirt everywhere but it’s temporary we’re
gonna get some sod if anyone knows the good price to pay for sod to be laid let
me know I don’t know it’s part of it whatever there’s a lot going on but I
want to tell you I am really really excited yesterday I was not excited I
was like kind of nervous and I had so many boxes in so many parts
and I’m like this thing is never gonna get done we ripped into it yesterday
here’s what we got so far and I got to give a shout out to
Julianna and complete green house kit calm I actually I was working on this
last night and like about 20 minutes before daylight was gonna be gone we
were missing a piece you know so so gosh yeah excuse my French but ah shit I’m
like how am I gonna do this thing I’m missing a part I’ve got like a window to
get this thing done blah blah blah you know just a lot going on I mean it’s not
done I want to get a bill a little bit of pressure coming from the YouTube
channel by the way to get this sucker rolling so I’m like I so this morning uh
I call up Julianna there on central time so 9:30 my time 8:30 their time I spray
their first phone call I called the dude up and I’m in the customer service
because I’m in sales for a living not just aquatic generals and I’m like you
know demanding good customers because they go yeah part 17 no problem he’s
like check box three a boom part 17 so just just to know that a guy like not
only knew what I was gonna call about and said oh yeah we get that call
periodically it’s in this box blah blah blah so I’m real real real jacked about
it though overall folks this is actually the front part of the frame here we go
back here bow come around the corner greenhouses rolling folks got the frame
up actually had to redo two of the gutters I put them on the wrong way but
airs 24 by 12 of just greenhouse purity starting right here so I want to show
you what its gonna be like when I roll up in this mofo and I’m probably going
to build it up onto wood because when I walk in here I kind of have to watch my
head coming through there a little bit so I’m probably gonna build it up in why
not I have the time I have the space I have the opportunity to make this
awesome so that’s what I’m gonna do it currently sits it currently sits like
eye level or whatever here so I kind of want to get it a little higher probably
I don’t know six eight inches is what I’m thinking
and I can tell you it’s absolutely been a fantastic run in this greenhouse with
my man Josh the past few years I mean nothing’s better than rolling in here on
like a sunny day it’s like what is it today it’s like 50 outside it’s you know
pushing 80 in there right now it’s fantastic it’s been amazing out here
I’ve had all kinds of fish we’ve bred I bred the hamburg black so i got a bunch
of different platy types we’ve got all kinds of crazy plants I’m getting to
grow and then nothing beats growing plants in full Sun I can sit here and in
full Sun I can grow aquarium plants and watch the reaction as they come in it’s
just been an absolute riot fast-forward five years later there’s still a lot of
love for me in my heart and my soul in this greenhouse there’s a lot of things
that I don’t like about it while I’m a firm believer in functionality over
looks especially in a greenhouse that you’re selling aquarium plants out of
that doesn’t mean it didn’t totally kill the function a one of the big examples
of this can be clearly seen when I have 1 2 3 4 125 in here
all right here’s how we would run the 125s originally got the water level
slightly lowers to the like and get through here is how we are running the
125 today you can see we’ve got them slightly lower and what we had to do is
we had to take these racks in order to expand but we had to lower these 125 s
down and we run them slightly lower water so we can have more light
penetrating down to the bottom again totally great functionality but as far
as the function coming in and staring at a six-foot tank with some fish swim in
the full length of it gone alright let’s talk more about these
racks I love this rack this is a great rack
we got a built thicker with Josh we use the 4 by 4 we experimented here with the
20 tall’s I got one two three four five six of them here bounced over here I got
the 20 Long’s for even more light penetration I got the shallower depth on
the PVC piping I mean we’re growing the heck out of plants here you can’t see it
with the glare but we’re growing to be Jesus out of plants this thing is
fantastic however there’s no function this either right like you look at them
I’m looking at a viewing window of this I want the full what is it 24 30 inches
that a 20 long gives me I don’t have that here I’ve also got these pipes
coming out the front functionality is fantastic I can rip it out like that and
water can go right under the floor that’s great but at the end of the day
I’d like to look at the full length I’d like to look at a full carpet of this
wonderful Akana doors to Nellis we have growing in there the fungus way is gone
the functionality is there as I said these racks do a fantastic job of
growing plants I got the sunlight coming in here right now you can see I hardly
have to supplement anything just one of my little LEDs but the sunlight
penetrates all the way down through here the problem is since I put this rack on
guess what happened now no light gets down into these so we got to supplement
it with a metal halide not an issue except for the sunlight and these
sometimes is a problem because of what I’m about to show you here’s another
part of the problem this tree right here in the summertime is full of leaves and
guess what leaves do they shade the wonderful sunlight that’s getting
through right now no problem the Sun is shaded out from getting into my
greenhouse the irony of this whole situation is this this tree right here
is actually fed a ridiculous amount of water and probably has grown a lot
faster because the drain which is so lovely right there coming out of my
greenhouse comes right there so all the extra nutrients and the plant booster
growth juice that we use in our tanks gets dumped fed into the roots of this
tree right here making it grow bigger so in the summer it grows bigger it has
more shade and it shades out my greenhouse what am I gonna do cut down
this tree heck no this tree is awesome I love this
tree I love trees in general and oh by the way this tree was planted the year
that my NOLA was born the tree stays you married
fellas you ever heard the term happy wife happy life yeah I’ll pump you think
my wife is on my worthless non hair and chasing dog comes in goes and plays it
all that chases Josh around the yard and then tracks all this mud up into the
house oh by the way it comes all the way up to here mmm sorry honey don’t know
what to tell ya that’s the path to my green house my frickin yard looks like
the Cleveland Brown Stadium aka the factory sadness after the Pittsburgh
Steelers come to town and neuter us once or twice every year murdering the
quarterback that we have at the time who’s about to get replaced by another
quarterback that will do no good and that cycle has continued for 18 years my
yard is ridiculous but forget about my green house for a minute just take a
pause on the green house let’s check out my garage you guys let me see my garage
look how fantastic diseased ready for this this is fantastic oh hey honey you
want to pull your car in the garage oh sorry you can’t because I got this
fat flu ball at 15 or f20 I think it’s at 15 right here that I haven’t set up
that I’m dying to set up a place to set up I’ve also got this big tank right
here we’ll talk about a second I got an empty leaking 40 breeder over here a 20
over here Oh kids you want to pull your bikes out no chance in hell so not to
mention the oh my god can’t move 320 gallon aquarium from our friends at
custom aquarium that I simply do not have the strength to pick up unless I
have like eight guys with me and they’ll probably die in the process my garage is
a complete nightmare looks like a bomb went off and even if I had a highly
caffeinated Saturday in the dumpster I still couldn’t get this tank out of here
and I still got a bunch of crap yeah run away as you don’t chase the
hare and go ahead and finally obviously I’m running a
business out of here okay and well yeah that’s helping keep overhead low the
reality of it is this is where I want to come home and relax this is where my
wife wants to come home and relax this is where my kids want to come home from
school and relax look we eat dinner as a family every night at 5:30 come hell or
high water but half the time I still got Josh running around in the backyard
getting the packages out because they got to go out and get to the post office
before 7:00 look you know what this is going
I live a tremendous life I wake up every morning and I asked myself if I could
have any job in the world what would it be I have the perfect job for me
I love what I do and I enjoy it but the reality of the situation is the business
has grown tremendously I’m tremendously happy to have so many people supporting
me doing what I love and I couldn’t do what I do without your support but the
business has outgrown this current location it’s outgrown my greenhouse
it’s outgrown my garage and it’s time to find a new place to run Dustin’s
