Thanks to Randy’s old Canon underwater camera, we can ‘observe’ our fish in our system in these YouTube videos even though we don’t have them in aquariums with glass walls. This will be helpful so we can observe fish behavior, stress levels, scratching, etc. We’re also working on building a viewing tube so we can get up close and personal with the fishies like we’re looking through a periscope.

These aren’t quite National Geographic quality but they are fun and it’s uncommon to see fish in aquaponics systems. As our system ‘ages’, we will have more tanins and organic material in the water so visibility may go down soon.
