    Awesome work. I have a ton of photos of my tanks (Which I'm greatly reducing the number of soon). They're not easy to get! That's for sure. If #3 would have had the entire fish in the frame it would have been awesome.

    I agree with you about number three. I was disappointed to not get a shot with the whole fish framed. That's a Pajama Cardinal BTW, and I will try to get a pic of the whole fish tomorrow for you. :D

    Cool:) I never did keep any salties. Just weird freshwater fish from Asia, Africa, and the Amazon.

    Just sold 775 gallons of tanks a couple days ago:(

    If you really wanna get good photos using the technique you did then shut of your air pumps and filter(s) while you take pics..

    When I shoot my tanks I use an off camera flash from above the tank, it sits in a home made light box. Light box is just a shoe box with tin foil stuck inside it to help bounce/reflect the light into the tank.

    Typical settings for this is about can be anywhere from about 1/2 to 1/8 in flash power and about f/16 and 1/160-1/200s. I find is a good aperture to use as this helps keeps things in focus..

    Here is a couple of examples using this type of setup.

    That's what I do with the exception of killing the filter. Frankenfilter keeps up enough to not worry about it:)

    Yeah I don't kill my filters or air pumps when I use flash. I was saying that for stormbind as he isn't using any and the slow shutters are showing up the air bubbles as streaks through his shots..

    I've had that big guy for 4 or 5 years. He was about an inch when I got him. A pet store special so I'm sure it's F10000 or something.

    You're probably laughing at the Aussie Arowana since you could step out and go fishing for them LOL.

    Grrr! No fair. I can't keep any coral alive in my salt tank and my roomies killed two of my fish while I was away last summer.
