This is my favorite Video ...


Check this out in HD. Shut off all the lights and just be mesmerized. Really awesome video.

This is the 2nd largest aquarium in the world at around 2 million gallons. This is not the Georgia Aquarium (Largest in the world with a 6 million gallon tank) like I had originally posted! Sorry lol.


I'll be going to the Georgia Aquarium in November with my 7D! Hopefully I can go see this Japanese one in the video one day!

Default Thank you...

It's beautiful, I watched it in fullscreen HD, and have not felt so relaxed in a long time. The music could not have been more appropriate too. Really, thank you for the recommendation.

At first I wondered why humans were even necessary in that video, particularly the waving dolt trying to capture the camera's lens (he needs to be ingested by a whale shark) so we can just watch the marine life. As I watched it more though, I realize that the people make a sense of scale, and you can even feel their amazement by watching them. I hope you don't have waving dolts or crowds when you go!

LoL There will always be someone waving at a camera lol. I'll edit them out tho lol. But I couldn't agree more about the relaxing part, it really is a great video with a great soundtrack to it! Thanks.

I liked reading the comments about people B8tching at eachother. That was truly funny to read. These animals are all very healthy and taken care of. They don't look stressed in any fashion or form...<3 huge tanks like this.

Ok this leaves me with several questions...

Hoppy,
If you have 5000 48" T5HO Lights 60 feet above the substrate would the par level be high enough o grow an HC carpet? Or would about 9000 cree led's with a 2 inch spread be enough :-)

Tom,
How many tsp of trace would you need to add to 1,981,000 gal for EI dosing? And gee the 50% WC weekly must be a bear...

:-)

Also, would you go with one Eheim 2217, or two 2215s?
