75g tank

75g tank with Pacu, Plecco's, Oscars, and a few little catfish. This is the wife and I's 3rd tank. We also have a tiny 10g(with neon tetra's and guppies for our daughter), and a 29g with angelfish. I'd love to post close-up pics of the actual fish, but I'm still new with this Nikon D80. Seems no matter what setting I use they turn out blurry!

How nice! Although I must ask, what are your long term plans for housing those large/wasteful fish?

Also, tip for the camera, see if it has a shutter speed priority setting- that way you can set it to the highest shutter speed the lighting will allow, thereby allowing for the quickest capture, and your camera will do the rest for you.

Much larger tanks are in the near future - something around 250. One at our place, as well as one(larger) at my parents house about 20min. from where we live. This 75g was just a small step into the much larger aquariums. We wanted to get comfortable with a larger tank before we stepped up from a 29g into the hundreds of gallons. And trust me when I say the upgrade will be done well before it's necessary. We take the well being of our fish very seriously!

I'm not going to be like the Japanese restraunt we went to in Germany a couple of weeks ago that had about 12 one-foot long coy fish in a 60g aquarium...

Thanks for the camera tips. I've only had it a couple of months so I'm still trying stuff out. It's definitely got the ability to take the pics. I, however, don't!

SLR's are wonderful, I've got one myself, and you'll be able to get some really great photos. Glad to hear you're planning ahead for your fishies, I wish I could have a Pacu. Welcome to fishforum!
