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

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?

Oh...

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.
