since the aquarium is plastic of some nature im terrified to section it as ive read mineral oil can cause some swelling in plastics. the swelling has yet to be seen

Brilliant, I still get a mad grin on my face whenever I see a PC submerged in mineral oil.

so i have ordered an alpacool dc lt pump. i will use a dual 80mm hardware labs radiator and dc lt pump to cool this, all other cooling tests failed to cool the oil as i had hoped. i believe the cools best due to surface area over my other trys. ill update with pics after i recieve parts. draining this will be interesting.
