Oh, excellent!  That should also allow you to submerge the entire unit
to great depths without implosion; then you could show high-definition
movies to the fishies.

(Of course, most display devices would be problematic at such depths
due to their construction technologies; it would be difficult to make
them implosion-proof without unreasonably strong enclosures.  Maybe
you could wire into a cuttlefish's nervous system and use its
chromatophores as your output device; they certainly seem to have
the bandwidth and response time required!)
