    perhaps a 1 second delay will reveal the full tail. Great start, hope to see more from you!

    Here more test photos of one of my favourite fish, the puntius Johorensis.
    BTW he is a little off color as I just caught him and release him into my photo tank.

    you compressed your images too aggressively, pixellating already.

    also the fish is not Puntius johorensis, it is Puntius hexazona (confusing arising from Peter KL Ng's Science Centre booklet). Actually I think it might be the Puntius pentazona instead.

    Puntius Pentazona it is..Anyway, what would you recommend the compression and resolution to be if it is optimised for AQ Posting?

    Still learning and learning.

    You are using adobe PS to save? JPEG at what compression level? I think for better quality at small sizes, level 8 seems to be good.

    I use 600 x 400, then save at image quality 12. (or 10)

    that gives a file below 250k (220 usually).

    see my corydoras seussi pix

    I normally just use the "Save for Web" option in Adobe Photoshop. Gives me a picture under 100K most of the time unless there's plenty of details.

    Edwin, why don't you consider keep all your pictures in a standard size (e.g. 600 X 400, 640 X 840, etc)? Makes much better presentation especially when presented in a series.

    Cheers,
    I have dwarf cichlids in my tanks! Do you?
