yes and the fish accidentally getting pulled into the loop is epic fail.

also, I dunno about you but I'd hate for fish poop to float inside the loop.

If you've ever worked with a fish tank, you'd know it is hard to clean.

I would rather use sewer water than connect my loop to a fish tank.

Pointless... It would be funny to make it look like your computer is cooled by the tank water by hooking up some dummy lines but actually using the fish water as coolant seems like a dumb idea to me. It sounds like a great way to have nasty buildup inside your pump, radiator, and block.

EDIT: It also seems like a great way to kill the fish...

This. Also, I think some people have done this, but not with live fish in. Just used a fish tank as a reservoir and put some display things in there.

I wonder alot of things from the OP but the answer is yes. You can even have a mineral oil cooled PC in a fish tank, and ontop of the mineral oil have fresh water that will float above the mineral oil due to density and have fish in the fresh water. Atleast, that's what I heard and science says you could.

Except for the fact that mineral oil is less dense than water and will float on top of the water...

Well that would be a successful cooling experiment then
