Contemplating this idea I was looking for some reading to support that Styrofoam killed fish but have not found any if you could direct me that would be great. I was thinking of finding some aquarium kind of paint to coat it if you would be dangerous.

This is where I got the idea from I read all of the comments both negative and positive I would like to know what others think.

And this is a rough sketch of what I would be doing I like the idea of styro-foam not only because it is inexpensive but because it is light weight I would most likely use Acrylic sheets instead of glass.

As long as it dosnt leak and inst toxic but I cant find any proof that its toxic and it will be filtered and the styro-foam will help keep the temp up. :C I think if I just test the water lvls on a regular basis it should be fine but again Im still looking for info.

Anyone who might be interested I looked around and priced the materials Im pretty sure I can get less expensive materials but as a reference.

cooler
5.20

PvC Pipe
2.00
Lowes

Waterproof Silicon
5.51
Amazon

Acrylic
Sheet 2.90
