My new tank, 20 gallon, Glow Lights

I didn't discover this tank had a noticeable scratch until after I set it up (friend gave it to me) but now I have to live with it. This shot is one of my first aquarium pics, hope I'll improve.

What's to improve upon? It's beautiful!! Really lovely.
Your plants look great and I really love the Red Tiger Lotus. Nice job.

I'm just learning how to photograph fish so this pic isn't my finest hour in photography. I was playing with high ISO and auto focus, I now know - for me - I need to manual focus, a tough task for quick moving fish, and to lower the ISO. I shoot butterflies so I'm used to fast focusing, but these little guys and gals will be a challenge:

Great looking tank! Not a bad shot of the fish at all, either!

Yes indeed. Nice work.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I didn't realize what beautiful little fish they were until I saw this pic. Nice.

They're really one of those fish that don't look like much in store tanks but really shine once you get them home and acclimated to a comfortable environment.
