Underwater Camera - African Cichlids

My boyfriend bought me a new underwater dive camera as an early Christmas gift so this was my first attempt at filming in the fish tank lol

Be sure to watch in 1080p - SO worth it.

Well done! The fish were like "Hey! Wth! What kind of fish are you?" Even the pleco was annoyed.
Felt like I was in the tank. Sure is noisy underwater.

Thanks!! They were pretty confused about the camera that's for sure lol.

I tried to take a video inside my grow-out tank and it was pretty hilarious they wouldn't stop nipping at my arm and the camera.

If I get more good clips I'll be sure to share. Gonna fill up that YouTube channel with fish videos

I'll be snorkelling in the florida aquarium next week so hoping they'll let me take my camera in!!

Just curious, which camera are you using?
It would be cool if the camera was on a stick and the fish did not notice it and went about their business. We're talking a cichlid style reality show.
Sure, think of us while snorkeling next week. Especially those of us getting snow

Haha I'm in Canada (Northern Ontario specifically) so I know the snow feel! I was thinking about the stick idea. Get them used to it so they don't feel too bothered by it lol.

The reality show comment made me laugh. Season finale scandal Carly (OB Peacock) crossbreeds with Jason (Bumblebee) and his BFF Sonny (Dragonblood) puts a hit out on Jason because Sonny is still in love with Carly. BAM.

The camera I'm using is a Nikon CoolPix AW120.
