copper, glass or plastic?
    #2052893 - 10/29/03 05:23 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Which would be best to use with a fish tank heater? I know everyone says glass but why not copper since it's a better conductor. I through plastic in there for the hell of it BTW

To use for what? Did I miss the bus here? Copper is a better conductor -- of what? Electricity maybe -- but glass is probably a better insulator - if not -- its a much cheaper one.

In the pickle jar method you put the fish tank heater in a large container and that heats the chamber. So I want something conducts heat the best, right?

i dont know much about copper, but as long as it doesnt continue to rise in temperature but remains at 80degrees i dont see how it could cause a problem.

i know copper is the best conducter of heat but i also know that they use aluminum for cpu heat sinks so aluminum may do the trick as well.
