Tanks get cloudy very quickly with dust and debris from fabrics, etc.

Should it look like a deep sea dive, a shallow ocean floor or just below the surface?

we have a key grip rigging the lights in scaffolds secured with rachets and sand bags and a set electrician experienced enough, all lights will be powered through a generator. I think mr key grip will keep us alive. the tank is designed to keep water flowing and draining.
I think your Mr GFCI will keep you and your talent alive on your trunk runs to the set and smaller GFCI's on smaller units next to the water.
Don't shoot in a pool without doing everything you can electrically to protect everyone. Lights go bad, wires comes loose, HMI's are notorious for leaking voltage but so can tungsten.
A Key Grip, even a very experienced one isn't responsible for electrics.
It doesn't matter if the juice comes from a generator or not or whether the water is flowing or not, water still conducts electricity faster than the flow. Get a GFCI.
