    Not that I'm a good photographer but if you are using Canon, get a ST-E2 so that you can place your flash on top of your tank. The effect will definitely improve.

    Nicky,

    ccs uses a Nikon D70s digital SLR. Canon does not have a kit lens that's 18-70mm.

    His camera already comes with a commander mode so he has wireless in built into the camera. The equivalent of the ST-E2 for Nikon should be the SU-800.

    Good pictures with excellent details. I think you can consider cropping the Apistogramma pictures. I'm sure it will be more impactful.

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

    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    Well you could actually edit it in photoshop. Increase the contrast and brightness. That and unless you're shooting like choy and editing is unacceptable you can use a higher ISO and remove the noise with http://www.neatimage.com

    Hmm Nicky thanks for the tip was placing the flash slightly above the fish.Will try out putting on the top of the tank tip.

    always use a credit card to scrap the glass first, then let the stuff settle before shooting. otherwise damn wasted if you get a perfect pose with perfect sharpness and perfect exposure, only to be obscured by the dirt.
