    mod? the woman in a tho tho thon thong? i dont see any computers..







    :D :D

    That is pretty trick too would be cooler if it was a water cooled rig, and instead of a heater for the fish, the cpu would do the job.. hrrmmm.. :cooldude:

    I wonder how he transferes the heat away from the tank. He might one day wind up with cooked fishies...

    u can just imagine that...

    computer (electricity), water & fish = DEAD FISH.

    computer (electricity), water & fish = DEAD COMP.

    Would be a nasty find!

    However, its really nice. Nice find. :baby:

    Why doesn't the heat from the PC make the water hot enough to kill the fish?

    A) The location of the tank is isolated from all the components that generate heat. Several fans are placed in the case as well to move the air though. When the computer has been on for a long period of time, there is a slight increase in the water temperature, but not enough to exceed to livable range of the fish. One of the reasons that I selected the neon tetra was because of it's small size and it's rather large temperature range (23C-28C).

    Kewl, thx I stand corrected. I would have tought that with the amount of water you have, your computer could never get hot enought to heat the water to such a degree. But as in all things it would simply be a matter of time.

    Another good answer would have been Plastic fishies... hehe

    All I know about fish, is that once the sucker is hooked, he'll give ya one hell of a figh. (Salmon and Rainbow trout fishing).

    nice one seth sounds cool. i used to keep tropical fish the neons the guy was using are pretty hardy fish. as fo the temp of the water i expect he has a thermostat controlled heater. if the heat from the case heats it too much then the thermostat switches of the heat and the puter takes over. i found that 76 f was a good temp to keep most fish at. i was thinking about the use of the tank as a resivior and the rad. if you ran the water thru enough and replaced it and if you where to test it for impuritys. then if you have a second submerged fluval and if it was a 2 foot tank then... it might just work but i dont want to try till im shure its safe this is why i need a cheap water block with a 1/2" if i could link the cpu frequency to the temp of the tank then i could use it to heat the tank too. i wouldnt want to hurt the fish tho so will just do it with out the fish.
