Underwater Camera Captures Hand-Feeding Goldfish

Underwater Camera Captures Hand-Feeding Goldfish

Want to see the world from their point of view?  I got a new underwater camera, a Canon D20, that allows us to do just that!  You’ll want to watch until the end because Monocle (the one-eyed guy) does something very silly.  Beyond a certain point, Viagra will no longer be present in your bloodstream…

Something’s Fishy about this Valentine

Something’s Fishy about this Valentine

Hello everyone!  In keeping with my tradition of decorating my 75 gallon fish tank for the holidays, here is my Valentine’s Day aquarium.  I didn’t realize this until well after the decorating was all finished and I was filming, but this holiday actually works really well for the bristol shubunkin because of their (sideways) heart-shaped…
