Reef Lagoon FAQs

When do the rays eat?

Feeding times are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 1:30 pm PDT.

What species am I seeing?

Check out our Reef Lagoon field guide.

Why don’t I hear anything?

At present, there is no microphone in the water or attached to presenters when they feed the fish.

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.

The webcam doesn’t work on my computer. What should I do?

Try launching the webcams via YouTube: Reef View and Lagoon View.

Technical Difficulties?

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 webcams@calacademy.org
