    I'm thinking you might be talking the "safe second" ID. On my Sport diving single tank rig, I have one (my best breather, SP S600) normal face-plate, but on a yellow pull-free necklace and served by a yellow 6ft. long hose... tucked between me and the wing. This is the one out and I'm using. It is also the one that I know is working, have immediate control over, and the one I would donate. The long hose gives better control between divers dealing with a heightened anxiety. The other one (my next best breather, SP G250v) normal face-plate and is on a black necklace and served by a 28" Black hose, it is right below my chin and is the one I would use after a donate. I ditch the long hose for side mount and bring it back for manifold doubles.

    I may not see them coming and I know they will see all the yellow and expect (if they are smart) will go for the one I'm using, since they are not going to see a dangling second because it is on my neck. I try to stay streamlined, no danglies... bad for wrecks with current and drift diving.

    Very cool video, but was disappointed you guys decided to touch the octopus.

    I don’t disagree. I stuck my hand in the frame for a reference to scale and before I could react a tentacle shot out and grabbed my finger. My bad. Let me assure you, no cephalopods were harmed during this unfortunate incident! :)

    @pelsasser, I checked out your link to Elsasser Photography and I suggest others do the same. Stunning. Really beautiful images above and below the surface.

    It sounds to me like the octopus should be chided for touching the diver. :D

    Actually @Soloist is pretty cute. I've even thought of grabbing him on occasion but that's probably more to do with his "lounge around the pool" wear. Oops...TMI :giggle: (Sorry, Lisa) :bounce::bounce::bounce:

    Nice vid, BTW. :)
