As the title suggests.. my name is Joey..
Neil invited me here. Not sure of his user name.. but he's a moderator here i believe.
Some of you might know me as "uarujoey" or "The king of DIY
" on youtube.
My real name is Joey Mullen.
I live in Nova Scotia, Canada. My wife got me into fish some 11+ years ago... and now... well.. its all her fault. (PS: She doesn't even like fish.)
Forums like this one have been a huge part of my hobby for a long time. I try to be active on as many as i can, but the last couple of years i have been pulled into a different direction... youtube.
I have always been a "DIY" kind of guy. I loved that i could build something i wanted, the way i wanted it. AND save a few bucks while at it.
Well, we all know just how long it takes to snap photos of the progress of a project, type up a big explanation of it, and then post it(hoping you didnt time out and lose all the work!)...
So i grabbed my camera one day... and just filmed what i was doing. Why? It was easier to just film it, talk about it, then upload it to youtube. Then be done with it!
well..... a few people started watching my videos.... and i started making more......and more.
To keep a rather boring story short.... i ended up becoming the most popular aquarium channel on youtube.
I wish i can say i planned that.... but obviously it was an accident.
My hobby long passion has always been geared towards freshwater stingrays and asian arowana. Which i now keep.
My main aquarium is a 540 gallon aquarium i built, houseing 2 leopoldi stinrays and a blue base cross back arowana.
I also enjoy Discus, and have dabbled in breeding, but was quickly over run with hundreds of fry. Which sort of took the fun out of it. I still keep discus and will get back into breeding at some time, but with a better plan.
Anyways... im here now.
While i hope to become an active an contributing member, i also hope to get to know a few of you while in the process.
Anyways.... Thanks for reading!
