Baltimore Aquarium Diving

Post  AKScuba on 1/1/2012, 5:42 pm

Got to visit the baltimore national aquarium and get in the tanks and do some feeding and diving thanks to a family member workin there. Loads of fun, lots of cool fish. Heres some pictures -

one of their monster lionfish :eek:

Feeding the cownose rays. These things are hilarious, they either swim up to you and sit on your head or face til you feed them or they latch onto the feed bucket. Id be surrounded by up to 10 at a time.

Pictures are a little difficult. Flash picks up all the backscatter and the lighting in the tanks is terrible.

Heres the reef tank. If you pick up handfuls of gravel and drop it slowly, the tangs come over and swim under it and let it fall onto them.

This is the pesky pufferfish that they just got in that tank, I caught him chewing on my pressure gauge
