Some of the best aquarium photos ever

Postby schlekw » Mon Jun 23, 2008 7:45 pm

I just wanted to share with everyone a website that I found that I think has some of the best designed and most attractive looking aquariums.
If nothing else, it can at least give you some ideas on how to aquascape a tank :)

I've seen them before, and I just get stunned every time I look at them. So, I don't look anymore, because it makes my blood boil with envy. :lol:

yeah those planted tanks are awesome. I wonder if they took the heaters and filter intakes and stuff out for the pics.

WOW! Now that's talent. The Frontosa lace rock tank is my favorite, #4, 20, 28 in the freshwater.
Can you imagine designing tank set-ups like that for people who have the money to do it!

No, not the best photos. Too much photoshopping and way too saturated. Those plasticplants and corals looks ridiculous. Also, most tanks have too much fish in it.

Can't comment on the fish because I know nothing about them. However as a hobby photographer I'm amazed at the lighting they managed to achieve.

Those photos are actually made up of 2 or more differently-exposed images. One is exposed for the background/rockwork and the other is exposed for the fish.

The Senske brothers do a booming business setting up tanks for discerning clients with lots of moolah. :)

The angel tanks are very dramatic, but I'd never stock that many angels in one tank . . . How do they make it work? I do like the dramatic driftwood in some of the tanks.

I wonder how much it costs for those guys to set up a tank. Must be pricey!
