Explosive!: Molten Salt Poured Into An Aquarium

March 9, 2016


This is a short video of crazy experimenter The Backyard Scientist (I do all my science in the garage away from prying drone cameras) pouring molten salt into a water filled aquarium. I did not know molten salt was even a thing, but apparently it becomes a thing when salt is heated between 500 and 1,112 degrees Fahrenheit. I learned a lot by watching the video. Mostly that if you want your fish to survive, keep molten salt away from their aquarium. Stick to fish food flakes.

Keep going for a short video of just the explosion, as well as a longer video of the whole setup and a lot of talking and stuff that I'd be lying if I told you I watched in it's entirety it could have nudie scenes spliced in the middle for all I know.

Thanks to PT, who's saving up for one of those plastic aquarium pirates that drinks out of a rum jug. Now see that belongs in an aquarium. Molten salt not so much.
