One of my other interests besides Photography, is Fish. I have 2 Tanganyika Cichlid tanks going and am breeding Neolamprologus brichardi and trying to breed Neolamprologus leleupi,and Cyprichromis leptosoma. My 3rd Tank is my catfish/ Blood Parrot tank.
Here are a couple shots I got tonight, had a really hard time with exposure, was either blown out or to dark. These tanks have insane lighting on top because I also grow aquatic plants, u wouldn't know it from the photos though.
This is a young Leleupi, I left the flower in the background. Getting a aquatic plant to flower is a challenge!

Very fine shooting, under tough conditions. Likin' the last shot the best for me.

I've tried shots like these before, they are tough! These ones are pretty good though. #2 is my favourite. Well done! :thumbup:

Thanks guys!
The second shot is my fave. He has amazing eyes, there reflecting some of the green from the plant, but normally there Ice Blue!

There's a video tutorial over on learn my shot (http://www.learnmyshot.com/Aquarium-photography-How-to-photograph-your-goldfish-in-tank) which might be of interest, it talks through how to light an aquarium for photography using basic lights.

Love the greens and orange combo in these shots.

Oh - I know two of them - have had them once in a Tanganyika tank myself. The Brichardis do have such a interesting breeding way! Do you have some pictures of the tiny ones too? :-)
