Nikon D7100, 90mm macro, a bit out of date but still works well. I also use a speed light, that's the secret ingredient!

Agree the high speed flash (overhead usually) is a bigger factor than having the ultimate camera. Nice to see you here GTZ!

Is there a complimentary 40k post package on the horizon? Maybe a nice gift card to Tom's Tanganikans or SI Cichlids or KG Tropicals? :)

End of the day, DJ & Dee have kept this place intact for the last 2/3 years.

Hey guys, how do you deal with flash reflecting on the glass of the tank?

Shoot on the diagonal and/or with the lights off...no flash. Or have a remote flash over the tank, don't use the one on the camera. This is the ideal.

I'm sure the color would be more vibrant with over-the-tank flash.
