Anyone interested in seeing the live video cam around the Aquarius (the US's only permenant underwater sealab) there is a mission in progress and the cameras are active.

Ken Nedimyer (htp://www.SealifeInc.net and http://www.coralrestoration.org - webmaster, dwhatley :wink:) is part of the team to develop a permenant underwater nursery based on his experience with his live rock farm (commercial) and coral nursery (nonprofit). The team is using the techniques Ken has developed over the years to create a nursery and study the corals and the effects of warming water temperatures partially in hopes of continuing Ken's efforts to transplant hardier corals where there has been massive die-off.

The Cartoon Network version is a little faster paced...

Hey, this is reality, not reality TV. Daytime viewing will at least get you an aquarium with live fish to watch. I saw a good sized grouper and a wrasse this AM. Unfortunately, the cameras are not set up on the nursery site but at least you can check-out the inside of the facility (there is also a virtual tour).
