They do seem to be a little silly. I think you can get a lot worse than 'narked' with a rebreather is you aren't super careful.

I hate to see them taking a hawkfish. That particular variety is super rare and rarely seen. Also, very shy. You see they end up breaking coral off to capture these fish.

Pretty cool video, didn't know people collect wild species for aquariums. Thought they came from breeders.

There are only a few species of saltwater aquarium fish that have been bred successfully in captivity. There has been progress made, but the vast majority still are collected in the wild.

I hope the narrator is right and this all for research and new species collection and not for aquaria sale.

Yep. No nitrogen in your mix, no narcosis. Anytime we were mixed gas diving at 300fsw it was on 86/14 heliox. No narcosis. They were just having fun, the rebreather doesn't have anything to do with the narcosis, or lack thereof. All about the mix they are breathing.

Try 285 on straight air all i could do is laugh my ass off. That was in a chamber. Totally useless. Max in water was 210 ft. was close to useless but it sure did feel good and no hangover. 320 ft on Heo2.

Did 220 on air in a chamber and we were singing Disney songs laughing and sweating bullets, August in Louisiana. I know my air limits and the bottom of the Tenneco is as deep as I want to go, and not for long either.

You "experts" crack me up. Take it from an actual rebreather diver who dives trimix about once a week, those folks are narked.
