I personally wouldn't. Even with a glass top, it would still evap a little bit, plus the moisture and humidity... No good for electronics

Mmm yeah i tought so.. but i really got no other choice... my other option would b to move the aquarium into a room... but that would be such a hazle and work plus i may loose some fish... im thinking in.worst case senerio buy the insurance for the t.v. and exchange it for a new one b4 it expires?.. hahhahaha. Has anyone ever had a t.v. above an aquarium?...

Do it.. Its not as bad as people are making it out to be. Ive done a 42 plasma above a 55 and seen numerous others. Only advice i have is make sure its a legit tv wall mount and that you dont go with some cheap tv. Despite what everyone says, the bigger name manufacturers hold up better.

That's the funniest thing I've heard. How many tv manufacturers make tv with salt water tanks in mind... Sorry bud, I wouldn't risk it. It's my opinion. There is absolutely no evidence saying big tv manufacturers of TVs hold up better against fish tank evaporation. Too funny.

Where did i say that big tv manufacturers hold up better against salt water?? I didnt... I said they hold up better in general. Learn to truly understand something before commenting. Oh and that 42 panasonic plasma over the 55.... It was 6 years old when they took it down and relocated to their gameroom.. Because they replaced it with something bigger. If the OP is that worried about salt evap... Just place a makeshift shelf below the tv to help. If you dont have experience with the subject at hand, dont be so quick to jump on someones case
