    WOW Dean! That's really fantastic photographs. Slightly more difficult to take pics of fish? How about some pointers of taking pics of moving fish, please?

    Thanks for the excellent comments. Yip fish/tank photograph is a new challenge, man those fish never stop moving......lol. I will put some info together to night about what I do and how I get the photograph.
    Crispin – on the WB I hold a plain white paper against the tank so it is light up from behind and photograph it. This is my starting (WB) point for all the photographs take on a day. On my lighting I have T5 light 24w x 4, 2 x blue and the other 2 are white.
    Danimal – I am using a canon 100mm macro lens with 2.5 F-shot. Its all about speed to photograph in a fish tank.
    Again thank you all for the great comments as it is appreciated.
    Regards
    Dean
