    Here are some pictures I took while cleaning my fish tank. I didn't really care about composition, just picked up the camera and started shooting. Hopefully not too snapshotish. All shot with my 50mm under very low light.

    Maybe retake the 3rd shot.. away from the air bubbles? too much distortion.

    Nice! I like the peacock bass and the silver aro:) I've got a big old silver and I know they're hard to shoot. Mines a bit easier since he's getting older and losing his shine.

    The micro-bubbles really take away from the images though. It would be a lot better if you could get them under control, and maybe square up to the tank a bit more.

    Yah, I was trying to use the bubbles because it created a nice stream of light coming down. Usually happens right after the tank has been clean. Though, I should def shoot straight towards the tank. I was worry about my reflection.

    The third shot looks sort of bad. Maybe a little to dark? The others look fine.

    you can shoot straight on if you're in a dark room with only the tank lights on.

    An off camera flash or even a slave flash stuffed in a styrofoam box on top of the tank makes nice lighting for larger fish. Bounce the on-board flash up with a white card (to keep it from reflecting) and adjust your exposure based on the output of the overhead flash. or you can just use a sync cord.

    Here's one of my silver shot with an overhead flash in a dark room:
