Sawdust ???


New member
I try to drill a hole on top of the canopy for the fan and I know it will be alot of sawdust will drop in side the tank, is this safe ?
i would place some saran wrap over the tank and then get it off with a dustbuster or similiar.

it might be safe, but that depends on the type of wood used.
Sawdust floats but I would worry about the varnish or paint that my be in the sawdust. Can't you cover the tank so it is protected somehow?
Wood itself, anbd probably the glues in plywood, are not much of a concern, but if it is treated to reduce decomposition ("pressure" treated, for example), then it would be a bigger concern.
