New fish/New camera!
Emerald(Green)? Catfish
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!

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 have alot of light just 100 leaves it open too long to catch them. Those pics are all 3200 ISO with macro mode

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