    hi guys,

    i am trying to find out what is best to use as a probe to earth my tank.

    i have heard titanium bike spokes are good, but those arent easy to come by.

    what other ideas are out there?

    Can't remember what I paid for mine but they are not expensive at all. Think it was a few hundred bucks

    You can also get a titanium heater as that will have the outside connected to the earth in the mains plug.
