A new video of my aquarium. This time in HD!

I got some new fluorescent tubes. Unfortunately, my Hagen Glomat 2 electronic ballast seems to have a problem. It would blink incessantly after several minutes of running with two lamps. The problem doesn’t appear with one lamp though. I have written to Hagen for an opinion before I go back to the store to return it. Anyway, I managed to film while the light was in full intensity and here it is. I used my EOS 550D instead of my HTC 7 Mozart’s lackluster camera this time. I’ve had it for more than a year now but I rarely used it for video so I was struggling with settings and keeping it steady. I might utilize that feature more often now. If you look at this and the former videos of the same tank. you’ll notice some changes including real live plants, and a new layout. I know some of the plants are not actually aquatic species but I just learned about that after buying some of them last month. I rescued some of those plants that rooted and they’re now growing nicely. The ones that didn’t root can be found in the tank. I’ll just throw them away when they start to rot. The only aquatic plant in my tank right now looks like sagittaria to me. Can anyone confirm that? Thanks for watching! :) Note: the noise is from my air conditioner. My camera seems to pick it up like that but it’s really not that noisy… ~_~ That’s bound to change though as I’ve opted to swap the audio for music. :)
