If you're going to extract heat from your wood stove using a pipe loop and then pump the heated water into your fish tank, you will likely cook your fish, unless you have an automatic temp sensor that can shut things down quickly when the water gets too warm.

And, since electronics are subject to failure, here's something to make a potential disaster into something wonderful:

Easy Carp Chowder

  • 2 pounds carp
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • I cup chopped onions
  • 1 1/2cups lima beans
  • 1 1/2cups corn nuggets
  • 2 tbs. thyme
  • 1 tsp. MSG
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 quart heavy Cream
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder

Cook the carp in a microwave and take off the skin. Mix the butter and flour. Then, simmer carp, vegetables, thyme, salt and pepper slowly in cream until thickened.
