Regardless of their cost, they are still living creatures. They have one life, and then they're gone. They did not choose to be fish. I promise you, to them their life is pretty valuable and they...

Hmm, that one looks interesting. I wonder why it has the second set of headers on the middle shield (the one the screen plugs into).

Anyway, there's no reason why that wouldn't work, but you would...

I've considered those before, but my main hesitation is corrosion from leaving it the tank 24/7. Who knows what kind of stuff that will leak into the tank. Or who knows, it might be perfectly fine.
