New fish/New camera!




Emerald(Green)? Catfish



Mama!


one of the Rosy Barbs




And my favorite! Khan the 4" Opie!

I just got a new Nikon Coolpix L110 for Christmas from mother after expressing interest in an HD camera/video capable device. If anyone has some photography tips for fish I'd love them! Thanks for the view!

Because you can't starve us out and you can't make us run, Cause we'se them ole boys raised on shotguns.

Great pics! I got the SAME camera for Christmas from my mom!

I find that if I turn the ISO too 100, put an extra light on top of the tank, turn on macro, have the color setting on vivid, and stop breathing (lol) I get the best pics. Still messing with the settings though. Also, flash just washes the color out so I turn that off.

Problem with a 100 ISO and no flash is that a moving fish will always be blurry><

Not if you have enough light :)
I set the ISO down so low because if it's too high the picture gets all grainy.

I'll give that a try. I've just been going with 100 and everything is coming out pretty well.
