TV Tank

I am fully investigating the process of turning an old TV into a fish tank. If I find the ideal TV I am thinking a 20 gallon will be the maximum. I am going to try finding the old wooden TVs, if anybody has any ideas where to look (other than garage sales, which is the only place I know now!) please hollar!

It's going to take a long time for me to finish the project, find the tv, etc.; but I'll be sure to post pictures as I go through the process!

That could be interesting.
Make sure you don't use plugs or you'll electrocute your fish.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

No, I am going to remove all of the inner TV components!

Hmm, could you make a custom cabinet instead that made it appear as a flat screen tv? Or would that take the fun out of it? :P

Well, I don't have a whole lot of woodworking tools to begin with; but I definitely think that could be done :P

Not to get too off topic, but you know what could look interesting? A cabinet that made the tank appear to be the belly of a whale. Perhaps a bit corny...

No I think something like that would be awesome! It really wouldn't be too awful hard to do, assuming you had the space, time, and desire

You could even find a bowfront to plug in and if you had the whale at the right angle you could play it off like a whale pot-belly :P

The whale tank is a cute idea! :)
How's the TV Tank coming along?

Still searching, I've found a couple that were okay, but none that are going to work out extremely well yet. My search continues!
