I finally got around to making an overhead cover for my speedlight to
use in my fish pics, the idea is to use the speedlight of-camera and
get as much light into the tank as possible, the device it's self was
very easy to make, all I needed was some old photo paper an old
flouresent tube light cover and a roll of water proof sticky tape,
here's a few pics I took using the cover on top of my tanks ...

I'm waiting for the patent to come through mate, can't show my device
yet :hmm3grin2orange:

Seriously though if any one wants to see it I can take a pic or 2
of it, not much to look at though, lol
