Cant have fish its mineral oil fish would suffocate in there

I seen this before it looks pretty cool but tbh its just a for show thing i wouldnt risk this with any expensive components such as a C2D as i am pretty certain submerging in mineral oil isnt on the warranty

you couldn't use water cos it conducts electricity and would short something out . Thats the only reason they used mineral oil cos it dosent conduct electricity

distilled water MIGHT work since it doesn't conduct electricity since all the minerals etc are gone. But then again I don't know if a fish would survive in distilled water.
