    hi all:thumbup:
    so i have a magic wave 102 and thought i did mod it a bit and make it look cooler and better. i followed a thread, a guy put fans in the same tank as the one i have. am planning to use pc fans, but got a question, will the water vapour get inside my fan and cause a short circuit and will the salt stick all over the fan and eventually the fan will be covered in so much salt that it will not work. thanx, thinking of either putting extra quiet pc fans with custom fan controllers to controll speed or super cool led fans :) would love to hear your opinion. thanx:thumbup::thumbup:

    Amazingly no... I have a large pc fan about 3cm above water for about 6 months now & its still running like a dream!!!
    Only causes a lot of salt creap against the glass where the water evaporates but i just wipe it off once a month...

    I think the secret is just to add it to a place without too many bubbles bursting on the surface like close to a skimmer outlet. & the fact is, they are so cheap, if it does break, just get a new one. (I have about 6 in stock)
