Very cool - you seem to have a ton of nice stuff in your tank. Looks really nice.

Couple critique items:
I'd look to do even softer transitions between shots...even more fade.

I didn't watch all 48 minutes, granted...I flipped through. I'd look to try and have some more fish interacting in the coral/anemone. Much like the one that flipped through the side of the RBTA at the 53 second mark of the 2nd item. Think of it as one of those national geographic tv shows. it would make it more interesting to watch. Unfortunately to do this, you may record for 10 minutes to get 15 seconds of footage.

Really liked some of the time lapse parts you put in...that was a nice touch.

Thanks you for the feedback. I'll definitely give those ideas a try. I've always thought of the fish as being in the way when taking video, but you bring a really good point.

awesome! incredible photography.

but going from slow regular flow to the time lapse(with the GSPs) almost triggered a seizure, the sudden change of pace of the video was rather jarring.

Thank you for the responses everyone. Almost sitting on enough footage for the second edition. Think I'm going to try to narrate this one. Any thoughts?
