If I'm remembering my conversions and Ohm's Law correctly, the water in 
my tank offers around 16,000 ohms of resistance and that should be good 
for about 7 mA current. Plus, there's the GFCI protection. The only 
thing that I worry about is cold water on hot glass.

Nothing a little silicone wouldn't fix.
