Hacking a sea perch with a camera but now it won't work

We added a camera to our sea perch but now it won't submerge properly. Are there any suggestions or any sites that would help with the modifications to the sea perch?

.  The camera/housing is too buoyant. Add weight.

That was it. We added weight and it submerged properly. Thanks.

I initially thought you were talking about brutality to fish with an inappropriate blunt-instrument...
What do you mean Flash Gordon approaching by "won't submerge properly"?
It floats too much?

And a sea perch is... what?

.  A sea perch is a marine fish
.  A SeaPerch is an aquatic robot.

In that case, add some ballast, or angle the impellers for more downardabilityness.

"Downwardabilityness."  Kiteman, you've given me new respect for the Queen's English.
I sometimes like the German approach - if you don't have a word for it, bolt other words together until people get the idea.

Frickin' lasers! No, wait... that's sea bass. Never mind.
