A friend of mine in columbus used an old water cooler
unit, like you see in public buildings, and at first
he had a large number of mysterious deaths in his tank
as if the fish were being poisoned. The resourceful
guy that he is, he knew someone who could make him a
titanium coil which he immersed in his tank and under
the gravel. Now the water from the cooler circulates
in a closed system through his tank ...really a cool
concept. No more fish deaths and nice chilled water.
The darters stay in color. The titanium coils were
pretty expensive as I recall, somewhere around $100,
but the water cooler was free.
