Swim with your fish?

I sit and stare into my 46gallon aquarium and wish that I was small enough that I could get in there and swim around.

Anyone else have that burning desire to jump in and look around?

LOL I have thought of it many times. Not sure if the fish would feel the same.

All the time....until I stick my arm in and they start nibbling on it. I could comfortably get in the 150T and chill out with them as long as they left me alone.

I have a pic on my pc from searching the net of a guy scuba diving in a huge 800 gallon salt water tank, the top canopy raised on hidden winch's and pulleys and he had a continous source of oxgen thanks to a set of 4 large tanks under the tank itself, really cool, I'm jealous, wish I could do that...witha red tail catfish lol
I love my clown loaches and red tail shark!!! lol

Well, this experiance is not exactly what you had in mind, but its close.

I am a dive master in the Padi system, and being in northern Tennessee, there just are not a lot of places to dive. When we are training new divers, we used to go to a rock quary in Kentucky called Curielian Springs.

In the protected area (no fishing), there were seriously catfish bigger than myself (6 foot 2, 230) and Largemouth and small mouth bass longer than my arms. The bluegill and brim were MONSTERS.

Now, it is a real change when the fish start coming up to nibble on you! Most of the experianced divers wore hoods, not to stay warm, but to keep our ears from being lures. The funniest thing was when a bass tried to eat a regulator from somoenes mouth, and hit the purge button. It seriously blew up like a balloon. When it spit it out, the whole fish rocketed back as the air escaped its system. Seemed to be fine, but needless to say we all lost it
