Wall unit I made out of old coffee table tops that act as a tank with powder coated side channels glued together with urethane (windshield adhesive)behind the tank is a bluetooth speaker, a modified water tight electric junction box with a remote control operated power and 2 sets of LED tape lights that work off one channel (another two inside the channel to illuminate the middle bubble part, back two light up if there are water beads they can be a different color if turned on with one remote or the same as the middle lights if turned on with the other. the inside if the front glass has transparent turquoise epoxy with ground pearl powder mixed in so that if light is shining behind it, it's transparent but if light is shining directly at it the surface reflects and appears like ice. The big tank means I could use a very small reservoir on the bottom, just big enough to hold the 1000 gph pump and double check valve that keep the water in the tank in case of a power falure, and a fogger light inside the reservoir as well as a 1000 lumens offroad light up top. built from 90% recycled material.

  • This is SO cool! Have you made one of these before, or was this your first project like this? It's such a work of art, and mesmerizing to watch! :)

    • Thank man, that means a lot coming from you guys. This was the first water anything I've tried, now I'm obsessed with them. Far as I know there hasn't been one made with the center part being a tank. Lots of challenges to figure out and to get it all dialed in is a bit tricky getting even water flow over glass is next to impossible without one tip that NO-ONE  in that industry will give up but if anyone tries one message me and I'll share it with you.
