When do the fishes eat?
Aside from the two daily dive shows, fish are fed randomly throughout the day by aquarium biologists and also by automatic feeding systems. Tight gatherings of fish usually indicate that food has been distributed in that area.
Why don't I hear anything?
Audio is available only during feeding times. Try watching the live stream daily at 11:30 am and 2:30 pm PST to hear Academy biologists answer visitor questions while they care for the fish. Enjoy!
Why is it dark?
The fish may be sleeping. We dim and brighten our lights according to a schedule that best matches their natural habit. That may not correspond to the time zone where you are.
I’m seeing vertical color bars. Is the camera not working?

The webcam doesn’t work on my computer. What should I do?
Try visiting the Academy’s Philippine Coral Reef Webcam on YouTube.
Our live webcams are installed in very wet and salty environments, and with animals that can get rambunctious at times. If you notice anything that doesn’t seem quite right with any of our webcams, please let us know by sending an email to email@example.com.
