DIY Aquariums

I have been a member of the DCAS for around 25 years and has been on the board most of them. I have enjoyed keeping fish for most of my life.
I started my career as a designer/draftsman for Fisher Tank Co. in Chester, PA and then went on to become a drafting teacher. I taught Drafting/CAD for 25 years and now teach 3D design at STEM at Showlater in Chester. In my classes, students use various methods to design and print out 3D designs on our 3D printer.
I have always been interested in coming up with ideas and making them. This month I will discuss DIY aquariums. This presentation will focus on ideas, materials, and techniques for making your own aquariums.

Meeting Location!
Holy Myrrh Bearers Church
900 Fairview Rd, Swarthmore, PA 19081
