For those of you with big tanks ever navigated a remote control submarine in it?

There are times I wish I had a bigger tank, to house more fish, bigger fish, cooler aquascapes, etc. Though what would be really cool is to get one of those cheap rc submarines and pilot it in the tank. Have any of you done this?

Amano's monster tank would be great for this.

Would be really cool if it had a wireless camera. See your tank from your fishes' perspective.

Someday, when they make these little subs with robotic arms and cameras, we'll be able to go on an exploration of the dark corners of our tanks, use them for dead fish disposal, or even aid in aquascaping.

Knowing my luck it would give my fish a heart attack. We do have a couple r/c boats but they are too big for the tanks we have. Fun in the pool though!

Can't help it but would lover to see video of the oscar tangling with the sub!

OMG so I did a search for "submarine aquarium" and it looks like there are several videos but you have got to see this one. Poor big fish!

nice idea! the dead fish pick up and aquascaping aid part sounds like an idea i'd come up with. But don't let SOME users of this forum see it or else they will call you crazy and tell you there is no market for improvements to technology.
