Default Worries about fishies?

I bought a case, and modified the window to hold a fishy. Are there any worries of voltage before I finish building it and boot it up?

Or any er... Laws? :P

When you say voltage...you mean frying the fish? If so, then no unless you cut a psu cable and stick it to the side of the case while the psu is pluged in and on (but you probably wouldn't be feeling good either ). Also if the motherboard isn't set right and shorts out from contact with the case but i don't think that would be enough of a jolt to kill a fish (or is it...ive honestly never tried that ).

But some pics later would be pretty cool.

Haha, man just tell people that the fish make your computer like 8 times as fast. I can just see it now, running to Petsmart because you need to install more fish.
