LOL! Don't worry about the frogs nomming on anything they shouldn't be - rather that they get enough to eat in a community tank! ...
Chesh, I NEED some aquarium photography tips! Hahah!
Also, the frogs are the biggest things in this tank. They are extremely pushy of everything else. I think they'll end up being the bullies of the tank, honestly. :s
Good thing Mr Tiny Fish isn't really competing with anything. He's constantly zooming around, I can see him eating his invisible little food things. Quite funny, he chases them around like crazy, it just looks like madness since they're invisible to me.

Tank shots are H A R D! I am NOT the one to ask about how to do it! I'm still working that out myself. Just be prepared to toss more pics than you keep, lol! I find I get my best shots in the absolute darkness to reduce reflections - but it's tricky to get the shutter speed and aperture balanced so that nothing is blurry or blown out highlights. I'd say impossible, but I've seen it done - I just haven't figured out HOW yet! If you're using flash, you'll find that shooting the tank on an angle will give you the best shot without a reflection of the flash - but, of course, you then give up your full frontal tank shot! It doesn't matter, Lympster! Your piccies are PRETTY to me!

These suction cups are also perfect for hanging onto glass, which results in...
