here is a short film on aquatic animals generating their own light.

unfortunately these are deep water species and cannot be properly kept in our home aqauriums, but still very, very interesting IMO. this is just one researcher explaining some of her experiences in the field but ive heard a few talking on the topic. i hope you guys enjoy the topic as much as i find it interesting, its pretty unique of something to be able to do this.

This video was extremely interesting. I loved the dolphin swimming through the bio-luminesence critters, which was right here off of the San Diego coast. Thanks so much for posting, I enjoyed learning about something so amazing over my morning cup of coffee. Wouldn't it be fantastic if we could take a dive in a submersible? The woman scientist narrating was very well spoken and educational. What I wouldn't give to have her job. She has traveled to the bottom of the ocean!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
