its actally acrylic, not 000 watertight yet , but its just the start, i think they sell the same reservoir at procooling.com or something for 60 bucks.....

i was thinking about adding some color to it with a black light.... maybe the color out of a yellow highlighter will work???

heck all i need now is to make my own waterblocks and i can sell whole setups...!!

maybe you should consider drilling a small hole in the top and run the electrical wire through it. Seal it back up with clear silacone. I'm guessing that's where your leak is? Besides that, I don't think you want to put that kind of pressure on the frail straded wire via the seal.

actually the wire is coming throught a hole i put on the side bye the little hinge that holds the top on, and i did silicone it in.. i cut the cord and resoldered it...

well i was actualy trying to make one port on the side of the jar, but it kept cracking, after 2 jars i gave up and put em on the top, and it prolly took 30-45 minutes to do the whole thing..

It looks cool, bot the resovoire is kunda large which might inhibit it fitting in some cases. Ditch the Rio pumps and go with Maxijet. A well respected aquarium shop sol both Rio and Maxijet. I compared them and the Maxijet was better built and looked more heavy duty, but was the same size. The sales people also said Maxijets lasted three times as long. You might give them a try.
