|This is a series of photographs taken by artist Bruce Gray while scuba diving in the giant 350,000 gallon tropical reef habitat tank at The Aquarium of the Pacific, in Long Beach, California. There are over 1000 fish and other creatures in this giant aquarium. Bruce's brother Eric lifts his legs out of the way to allow an 8 foot Zebra Shark to swim by. A stingray cruises along in the top left of this photo. Bruce was invited to dive in the giant tank because he brought in several sculptures for the Aquarium's Night Dive evening event.|
|I love the surreal quality of this photograph. A Unicorn Fish can be seen, surrounded by a halo of light in the distance.|
|It was fun, and kind of mesmerizing to watch these beautiful Zebra Sharks swim around us. They would get quite close, and even brushed my arm a couple of times. These sharks are called Zebra Sharks because they have stripes when they are small.|
|Many fish have fantastic coloring, and these yellow fish with blue neon stripes are no exception.|
|Bruce's brother Eric swimming in front of the large viewing window.|
|It is hard to tell by this photograph, but this large and thankfully mellow grouper weighs over 200 pounds.|
|Another shot of one of the Zebra Sharks. I never get tired of watching these guys swim.|
|An up close and personal shot of a stingray resting on the sandy bottom.|
|The grouper swims up to investigate a pair of stingrays, and a resting zebra shark.|
|Bruce having fun shooting underwater photographs and video.|
