I've had an Foscam IP cam for some time now. It trained on my salt water aquarium so I can keep an eye on things when Im away from home. Now this aquarium has very bright LED lights and the water ripples due to the action of pumps. My issue  is that the cam seems to have a problem dealing with the bright light and rippling water.
  It can only hold the picture for a few seconds before it goes black. Usually I have to swivel the cam away before I can get the picture back by refreshing.
 Is this normal for IP cams?  Foscams? Is there anything I can do to remedy the situation? i've tried all different kinds of setting to no avail
