    Is there a way to reverse siphon- using it to add water?

    I used to do this with a rubber tube. I'd submerge the tube into a bucket of water and then manipulate it so that all the air comes out. This would include holding up both ends of the tube to equal height raising them up so that the tube is as straight as poss with one turn at the bottom, then...

    Thanks @Willis for the links. I've started watching them. I remember randomly finding an example of a video like this from the Philippines, though I was disappointed that there weren't many fish in it. Certainly plenty in the rivers in Brazil. Having searched around it is a bit of a D'oh...

    Only for one more day now. I'll be back. I mean that I will be looking for opportunities to survey aquatic environments in similar ways in other places in the world and in Indonesia too. But, in the future.

    Thank you. My Indonesian is basic but it is improving rapidly. With the videos I've just posted, I think I've run out of things to post. I'll check through some of the other files, but this might be all I have. This time. Now that I know how to use the camera, I will be looking for other...

    This makes me think that there might be more than one species of striped goby (assuming that the colourless ones are a species themselves.) Some of the female looking fish are much longer than other ones, for the same-ish diameter of body.

    Fish in Sumba Island, Indonesia

    I had seen some small fish that I thought were juveniles, but the fish with the black spots and yellow splodges at 2:30 or so seem very much a different species from the others. I also see what might be guppies/mosquito fish, and the colourless gobies I saw the first time but didn't think I had...

    A bit better here, but I think the best videos are still to come. A brief shot of a dark goby with a colourful stripe at about 0m 32s. What might be a stripey long female goby on a rock at about 2m 44s

    Fish in Sumba Island, Indonesia

    The water was very clear the previous time I visited. Unfortunately when I visited the second time I found a number of domestic water buffalo enjoying the water. They got out and left when we arrived but the water took some time to clear.

    I plan to title the videos and look into making them publicly visible and findable later.

    Not the best choice for the first video to post. But, here goes nothing.

    Fish in Sumba Island, Indonesia

    Thank you very much. I found pictures of Stiphodon Semoni online and some have what I remember as the 'more defined' blue strip I saw on one specimen. E.g. this from the internet. Also, the less coloured gobies often looked 'long' (one swims past the camera in a video). E.g. like the female...

    Yes, I deleted my post once the upload stuck on 3%. My ship has left port and I think that internet will slow and stop quite quickly. I am very interested to see the videos as they look quite reasonable on the tiny screen on the back of the GoPro. Uploading to YouTube would have been a shortcut.

    Do you mean this one? I don't remember spotting anything pelagic with two dorsal fins. It could just be that I did't notice. The non-benthic fish that I saw all looked like Pearl Danios to me. But, I could have missed something. Looking at the photo, I was wondering if this was something...
