Yeah we've got a couple of air bricks in there which is probably a bit OTT for a tank of that size. Was the smallest kit I could find though :?

Ladies and Gentleman, I have the great miss fortune to bring you some sad news........little ol neo tetra has passed on - just 1 mind, but he shall be greatly missed.....one day he was fine, the next he was swimming on his back, little nose pointing at the stars - it seems... oh god, oh god :cry: thats where the little fella wanted to be :(

He shall be remembered:

* This is not actually him, he has only been in the tank 3 days, as I added 4 more,lol, sometimes they just die.

And now folks, let us gather together and join in a owd to neo, with travis's : Driftwood, just like how the little fella ended up.

You need to only link to urls that start with http://www.youtube.com not subdomains like http://uk.youtube.com

Right people, now for my last edition to my tank, ME ! I wanna be in it with a remote control sub, now I've been looking around, and no one sells them it seems, so I wanna build my own, found various subs like this:

Now all I need is a tiny wireless video camera to install in it and make water proof , how would one go about this ? Any input welcome.

ACE!

It looks like that sub actually powers it's way downwards rather than sinks so you shouldn't have issues with the camera dragging it to the bottom of the tank.

I'd look at the CCTV market for small wireless cameras which should be weather proof.

Oooh interesting indeed,however im thinking something no larger than the end of a pencil say, less than an inch or so really, to attach to the submarine, in an ideal world id want a wifi controlled sub that sends video direct to a pc as if it was a webcam, don't think they do that,lol

As is, I think ill have to get a 'spy cam'(like ones you put in someones tie or something )and put it in a water proof housing

I was looking at spy cams, they seem to be what you need but I would be concerned about the low light when submerged in a tank.
