Placement of tank

Was wondering if the placement of the tank I plan to upgrade to underneath my wall mounted tv would cause issues with the tv (salt creep on components etc). If anyone has experience with this I'd love to get some advice! Thank you

I would think the water evaporating would damage your tv for sure...

The moisture content in the air over a fish tank shows almost no difference to the rest of the room. You'd see a bigger change when it's raining outside. If your tv was encased in a box with the water that would be different. But in your room you'll be fine.
I'd be more nervous about something falling of the tv into the tank. TVs are terrible for dust collection due to static. Cleaning it and it getting into the tank

That and salt creep was my reason for asking

Really? Okay ya I'm glad there won't be an issue as far as moisture etc. I'll have a custom stand and hood so I'll be able to do whatever is needed to prevent any cross contamination when it comes to the tv to the tank. Thank you
