Fishcam Information >
A Harlequin Tusk, Formosa Wrasse and a Twin Spot wrasse have joined us today. New pictures added for each fish
The Bannerfish are back and an Emperor Angel has joined us as well.
The tank decorations are back and a new fish has been added. A spiny puffer is the latest member of our tank. We had to remove the 4 banner fish to a temporary home because they were trying to kill every new fish we added for the last two months.
I know, I know, the fishcam looks terrible right now. We had to temporarily remove the decorations and transfer out the 4 bannerfish because they had become very territorial and were trying to kill any new fish. The decorations should be back on Tuesday (5/26/09).
Two infrared led illuminators were added to help light the tank at night. In combination with the IR sensitive video camera, we can now view the fishcam at night. Due to the limitations of IR, the picture will appear black and white and details will be severely restricted.
Here is a photo of the illuminators mounted to the camera.
For the 800x600 & 640x480 image sizes I added a zoom feature. Click on the main image to zoom in, click again to zoom out.
I added a picasa gallery for the fishcam. This currently shows the filtration and wide views of the tank and camera.
I just received a new lens for the Fishcam. This lens allows me to mount the camera a bit higher and further away from the fish tank so that it is not sticking out like a soar thumb in the middle of the room. The new lens requires fine focusing, and I clearly haven't focused it exactly right yet. I am remounting the camera with a permanent mount bracket and then I'll try and get the focus precise. The new lens is a VT3Z413M3 4.5-13mm F1.8 Day/Night lens with IR compatibility.
Here is a picture of how the camera is now mounted:
