Do you know how to do all this?

I know how to add the bubbles and vehicle them to the fish. I've done something similar before. Thanks for that idea.
I had no idea there was anything like the "ocean floor" as a model (thats what I get for only ever using "search"). I had just been using a combination of squares (with their opacity lowered and color changed to dark blue) as the walls of the tank.

Can you give me a little more information on the sine random function and sine mathematic?
Thanks in advance
