Hi Andy,

Check out Seaviewer's cameras. We use them for a lot of drop-camera work
with good results. They are tethered and do well in low light. They are not
specifically designed for web cam use, but they plug into any analog device.

Aloha Coral listers,

I'm looking for a small, relatively inexpensive web cam to put in our 2500
gallon salt water aquarium.  Ideally the unit would be able to "see" in both
daylight as well as dark (likely infrared), night vision.  
We have easy access to the aquarium so maintenance is not a big concern, and
cleaning and such can be conducted regularly, especially if it simply a
small, tethered unit that could be pulled out and replaced easily.  Web cam
streaming over TCP/IP to a multi-cast site, and to a storefront kiosk would
be the proposed distribution avenues for the signal at present.

Mahalo for the coral list brainpower!
