    Hi guys

    I have a canon EOS 1000D with a EF-S 18-55mm lens and I would just like to know what are some good settings so capture the beauty of my tank.
    Thanks

    For corals, put it on aperture priority and set the aperture to around F8 and use a tripod with all pumps off. Put it on an ISO of 400.

    For fish put it on shutter priority and set the shutter speed to around 1/100. Also ISO 400 and make sure the aperture is at its lowest which will be F5.6 at 55mm. If you dont get a shutter speed of 1/100 at ISO 400 then try ISO 800. Move with the fish and snap a few pics while moving and try to keep the fish in the same spot in the viewfinder at all times.

    For aperture priority you turn the dial on top right of camera to Av and for shutter priotiry you turn it to Tv.

    And to change the aperture in aperture priority mode and shutter speed in shutter priority mode you use the little scroll wheel on top right front of camera just behind the shutter button.
