The remote flash survived its underwater adventure- more pics!

As some of you may know, I dropped my remote flash into a tank (for the second time) a week or two ago. These are pricey pieces of equipment which are, unfortunately, vital for me to be able to get pictures of my critters. As soon as it happened, I quickly popped the batteries out and took a hairdryer on low heat to it. After it appeared dry, I put it into a bag of dry rice for a week. When I attempted to turn it on, all the electronics worked, but the bulb wouldnt’ flash so I figured it was toast and I should sell it for parts. Luckily (?) I have been quite under the weather, and didn’t get around to it. Today, while printing shipping labels, I turned it on and was playing with it and lo and behold the flash fired! Hurray! In celebration, here are some pictures form around the fish room! There are updated shots of many species. Enjoy!
