New Lighting!
Exciting news!  I've upgraded the lighting insid of the iMacAquarium.  I now use a LED strip light that wraps around the entire tank.  This allows light to shine up through the bottom if you use translucent stones in the bottom of the tank which looks prety cool!   It also now  illuminates the bottom part of the case.  In this video you can see the difference the new light makes.  


Cases and Colors
Some cases are more transparent than others.  Transparent cases are clear and easy to see through.  They include I​ndigo, Graphite, and Ruby.

Translucent cases have a smooth frosty or foggy look to them.  The light inside the case shines through nicely but it is harder to see details inside.  These colors include Aqua, White, Pink, Green, Orange,  Dalmatian, and Flower Power.
Hidden Feature
Hidden inside the base of the iMacAquarium is a power receptacle so you have the ability to plug in an additional item such as a device charger, tank heater, or alternative lighting.  Simply remove the bottom of the unit, plug in the device of your choice, and reassemble.   Obviously you will want to do this before you add water and fish!
Trimming Cases
Some plastic parts on the iMac's case have to be trimmed off to accomodate the tank inside.  I set up to trim several cases at the same time.  When finished I'm covered in plastic shavings!
The First Video!
This is one of the videos I created for  a successful ​ Kickstarter Campaign several years ago.  It's kind of painful for me to watch now, but it has some good information so I'll leave it here for you to see.
Disassembly Timelapse
Step one, take everything apart.  You'll notice I do every step in batches for consistency, quality control, and time management.  Here we are taking apart iMacs.  The shop is kind of limited on space but everything has it's place.  All of the pieces get sorted into respective boxes and any unused components are recycled.
GoPro in the Tank
Just a look at the aquarium from the fish's perspective.  In case you're wondering, my fish is named Tester, because he's a betta fish... get it!  It's a computer joke.
Polishing Apples
The iMac Cases are usually not in very good shape by the time I get them.  I spend a significant amount of time polising them to look as new as posseble.  I pay quite a bit of attention to all of the details.  In this video I am polishing the Apple emblems that go on the top of the case.
Polishing Cases
I have a four step polishing process to make the cases look as shiny as possible.  The iMacs are sometimes in very bad shape when I get them but with an hour or two of buffing I am able to get out most scuffs and scratches.
