 In  this  rainny  season,  i  found  current  leak  in  my  tank  water......
 
 
 causes
 All  the  electric  connection  was  made  inside  the  hood  of  my  tank
 due  to  the  rain  moisture  there  was  some  small  amt  of  leak  of  current  or  earthing  (i  am  not  sure).  It  might  be  due  to  improper  wiring  and  fitting.
 
 
 It  was  very  very  weak  leak  but  due  to  that  leak  i  found  my  fishs  scratching  them  selves  on  the  floor............

 Hi,
 
 You  should  consider  installing  a  residual  current  circuit  breaker.  This  will  trip  &  cut  power  if  there  is  any  leakage.  It's  a  great  safety  device.  
 
 Power  leakage  is  unlikely  to  be  the  cause  for  fishes  scratching  themselves.  They  will  not  feel  it  at  all.

 For  anybody  to  experience  the  'jhatka'..,  the  current  has  to  pass  through  his/her/its  body  to  the  ground.
 Glass  being  a  bad  conductor  of  electricity,  current  cannot  pass  through  it  to  ground.
 So  it  acts  like  an  isolated  environment!
 
 
 Thanks

 I  agree,when  my  Heater  broke  and  the  Current  leaking  into  the  Water,does  not  bother  the  Discus,  Only  when  I
 put  my  Hand  into  the  water,  not  realising  the  Breakage  of  Heater,  I  received  a  Massive  Elect  Shock    Surprised

 So,  I  guess,  the  point  when  we  receive  the  electric  shock  from  the  tank  -  we  are  actually  establishing  a  media  for  the  electricity  to  pass  (which  was  so  far  contained  by  glass,  the  bad  conductor),  and  so  the  fish  too  will  receive  the  shock  then.  Am  I  right  ??

 Oh  yes  !
 After  all  they  are  living  beings  too  Smile
 You  could  try  hanging  on  to  a  High  Tension  power  line  by  your  hands.
 As  long  as  your  feet  dont  touch  the  ground,  you  will  not  be  affected  at  all.

 No,  Rohan,
 
 Not  quite  true,  so  please  dont  try  it  !  It  depends  on  the  voltage  level.  If  it  is  very  high  voltage,  even  if  you  are  standing  1-2  M  away  you  could  be  pulled  by  the  charge  to  the  wire.  (  Which  is  why  as  the  Voltage  level  goes  up,  the  higher  the  transmission  line  are)

 Well,  there  are  fish  that  are  very  sensitive  to  electric  fields.  These  fish  will  be  affected.
