    i know this is short notice, but i am spending the day at Ushaka. Anyone know the important people around here. Would love to have a "behind the glass" tour if possible.. My contact number will be displayed for the next 2 hours, then I will take it off.... Thanks mods for letting me do this :
    number removed as i came right

    Lol, I always wanted to go into the one room, but could never manage (were not allowed), and today I got it right, thanks to Paul, and I saw exactly what i suspected they did to get a wave.... Now I know, and have the pics to duplicate....:thumbup:

    N8 was with me, took a couple of pics in the beginning, bluetoothed it to tablet, and battery died on me, so must still see which photos was taken with which phone......

    Yeah Dean, they were to change it couple of weeks ago to something better/simpler, and more quiet, and they did. Works like a charm..... Much better, and more accurate/precise too wrt small adjustments..... One can see the differnce in the swaying of the coral too, much more natural, without it sounding like a vulcanic erruption every time the plunger goes down....
