    AWESOME pics @JackSplat! I'm a big fan on macro pics, & these are right up there under the best i've seen in underwater photography!
    Can you perhaps share your camera & lenses you used?

    Thanks you @Visser, much appreciated.

    These photos where all taken with my Canon 50d, with canon 60mm / f2.8 ef-s usm lens. All manual, no flash, many pics :blush: , all through glass.

    Being an underwater photographer(under the ocean, lol), I truely appreciate a good closeup as I know how many bad pics it takes to get a good one!!!
    You should save a couple of those closeups for the next photo competition!

    Thank you, @Visser, must say, true underwater photography has been on my bucket list for a while, and it is definately moving up in priority. Guess i should get into scuba first though :tt2:

    Nice photos. Off topic, have your filefish started eating any Aptasia yet (I presume you got it for Aptasia as no one would put something that ugly in a display tank...lol).

    I might just take you up on that, next year will be the one where that item is scratched off the list.

    Thanks. Jip, got it for Aiptasia. It took a while but, yes, it ate all of them. Been Aiptasia free since.

    Thanks Jack... Unfortunately mine did not start eating Aptasia, but have taken a liking in flakes and mini feather dusters.

    Hopefully it would start. I have heard about instances where it took weeks to months before they started eating Aiptasia
