I think you are using solder, from what it sounds like (the soldering iron is the tool used (mostly for electrical work) to melt it and make connections).

I think the stuff used for plumbing and whatnot is different then what's used for electrical, but I'd still be leery of getting it near a tank.

Another thing you could do, is put some wire (coat hanger, or the solder if you really like it) through a section of airline tubing, and then that way it's protected form the water (as long as you keep the open ends on the outside of the tank).
