As the title states any thoughts on mounting an AI Nero 5 on the back of an AOI tank so that the magnet is actually underwater in the rear sump? Will it work? Will it leach anything, rust, etc? any experience with this?

just a thought right now but would like some first hand experience before I pull the trigger.

Bumping this as I have the same question, I have a full glass divide so the normally dry side magnet would be wet?

If you're worried about it leaching you can buy other magnets that are safe to use in aquariums. You don't have to use the magnet that came with it.

I've used rubber coated "cow magnets" before to hold things in place when setting a temporary stock tank. They were used for 3 months without issues. As for long term (multiple year) use, I just don't know.

You could even buy some magnets and coat them in plasti-dip or something similar.

I'm going to roll the dice and if my tank blows up I'll let you know. If not...no news is good news
