Thanks for sharing these excellent photos! I love the FTS. Lighting is perfect.
Foooooled youuuu.;) It would be cool if that was the normal lighting but it's a low light shot with the flash on top of the tank firing down. I'll have to get a normal FTS with the new substrate.

Do you have a photog guide somewhere GTZ? Your pictures are amazing... I'd love to be able to capture my fish in a way that didn't make them look bland / blurry. Most of what you have said in this thread regarding photography is just gibberish to me :)

Thanks very much! No photography guide I'm afraid. To start I'd suggest finding an online tutorial where you can get a handle on the gibberish such as ISO, shutter speed, exposure, etc. There are tons of online photography sites to read up on, as well as Youtube where you can learn via video. What are you shooting with? I recommend a DSLR, a zoom or macro lens and if possible an external flash.
This is where I'd like to end up some day:



This is Mo Devlin (Aquamojo). Count the flash units. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. There may be a couple more behind but it's hard to make out.

Thanks guys. I picked up a new camera, D7100 and two more flashes, all of which I'm still getting used to. Many, many buttons.

Must be nice! :)
:p

Took some more pics today. Been a while since I shot the Tropheus. I stripped the holding hara yesterday and took a few pics of the fry. These guys are hard to shoot as their tank is 7 or 8 inches above the floor. My stomach and neck are sore...

If I may,... here are a couple great articles for beginners.

After you digest those, get his book: it is outstanding:

My best advise: pick up a DSLR and keep shooting :wink:

'll be switching back to an aragonite substrate I think, it's too dark in there.
Oh my, gorgeous fish and excellent photography skill! :thumb:

I'm curious how do you switch substrate? Is it going to be emptying the tank, and put everything back with the new substrate? Or is there any simpler and easier way?
