    Hi all

    I haven't tried but I see there's Android and iPhone apps so I assume you should be able to.

    Feeding time in about 15 minutes, you can see how excited the fish already are, lol.

    Howzit Dean, it looks good. Question, do you have a lot of flow towards the glass area as the fish seems to enjoy it.
    Must say, your fish move a lot, and fast, way more than what normal fish do.....lol

    Hi Sean, no, there is not much flow, especially now as my 15000 lph Resun Waver packed up a couple of days ago so there is currently only a 6000lph sunsun in there. I think the fish are so busy only because it's close to feeding time, lol.

    Well, they look hungry. Love this webcam thing. You need to tell me how. Tired (and not much time) to take pics and upload, would much rather go this route. It does look way better than pics, and you'll have someone squealing soon enough if something is wrong in your tank- basically you will have a lot of "eyes" watching over one's tank when one cannot do it him/herself

    Dont forget the webcam is on .No funny stuff . this is a public forum
    Looks like a heck of flow from the left unless like you said, its about feeding time & thats the "feeding dance"

    Yeah, they eat like pigs, they get 6 blocks of frozen every day and then on weekends they get an additional 2 big pinchs of flakes a day as well.

    It's easy Sean, plug in your webcam, any old cheap one will do, sign up to Watch Live Video (its free) and then click the Go Live link, and that's it. :) Although you have to be careful with your data limit as live streaming will finish your data VERY quickly, if you have a limit that is.

    I'm not sure what you mean?

    Thanks, lol. There is no flow at all coming from the left because that pump packed up, although it does look like it, hard to explain, I suppose the flow from the right is bouncing off the glass on the left and coming back?
