Introduction: TV Fish Tank / Aquarium

Hi internet,

Here is the second TV Fish Tank \ Aquarium i made.

First one here: https://www.instructables.com/id/TV-Fish-Tank-Aquar...

Tools:
Screwdriver
Scissors
Pliers
Saw (maybe)

Step 1:
Remove the internals of the TV, leave external buttons if possible (may be able to use them to turn on lights,filters)

Step 2:
i was able to salvage a small fluorescent light from another 'all in one' type of tank. Fit perfectly inside againts where the speaker and the channel buttons were. i glued that in and wired it up to the TV power button.

Step 3:
Measure the inside of the TV for the fish tank. I was going to try and make the tank myself but everyone suggested i get it made so i gave the dimensions to [https://www.amazingamazon.com.au] and they built the tank for me in a few days.


Step 4: Sand,filter, Mini Buddha monk type thing. fish, water, boom.

    How do you handle and dispose of dangerous parts of the tv? I watched a youtube video on the same diy and everyone says its super dangerous because of tubing found inside.

    Fantastic. I think it's a great idea to make a different aquarium. And also, you can see a better quality content on your tv ;)

    Imagination to the power.

    Thank you very much for sharing.

    I always wanted to do this as a kid! How hard was it to gut the tv? Does the flourescent light stay cool enough when housed inside the tv frame? I'd be worried about the trapped heat.
