Will Humidity from an Aquarium Harm a TV on a Shelf Above It?

I have a nice heavy wooden TV stand with a bottom shelf. I was wondering if I could put an aquarium on the bottom under my TV? I know the shelf will support the weight, but will the moisture (if any should escape) harm the TV on the shelf above?

Thanks for any replies.

I would call a pet shop and talk to someone who could answer your question about moisture affecting a TV.

I'm not sure about the TV, but I definitely know that the moisture will affect the wood. We used to keep our large aquarium in the kitchen, underneath a row of cupboards. The moisture from the aquarium completely damaged the corner of the unit, and made the bottom of one door wavy.

I've never had an aquarium but I would be more concerned about the heat from the TV affecting the fish or plants that are in it.
