DIY – Create Your Own Pokéball Aquarium Bubbler!

DIY - Pokéball Aquarium Bubbler.

With the massive success of Pokémon Go, it was only a matter of time until this happened.

Recently, Thomas Burton, the funny guy behind many of the Big Al’s Aquarium videos, reached out to share his own DIY Pokéball Aquarium Bubbler!

To be honest, I didn’t even know Thomas had is own Youtube channel and I’ve been watching the guy do his thing on the Big Al’s Channel for years. He always has great aquarium information to share and presents it a very comical way. If you have time I highly recommend you check out The Thomas B Youtube Channel.

Anyways, back to the bubbler.

Now, this isn’t something that you can buy, but luckily it is something you can make, and it’s pretty simple if you know how a bubbler typically works.

The total cost to build is about $50.00.

However, if you already have your own Air Pump, stone and of course who doesn’t already have their own Pokéball, it will cost much less.

All you need to do is a drill or cut some holes in the bottom of the Pokéball to allow your air tubing and power lines to fit.

Then it’s just like setting up a typical air pump and air stone or bubbler.
