Thread: Killifish Tank

  1. #1

    Cool Killifish Tank

    0 Not allowed!
    I haven't been on in a couple months do to being busy and getting surgery. So I thought I would keep a new journal of my ten gallon Killifish tank. Right now it has a male and female Australe Killifish. I plan on adding different Killi's. They won't breed being my pH is to high for breeding requirements. The two are fairly young. If I had to say maybe 8 months, maybe younger. I would love suggestions and wouldn't mind suggestions on how to take clearer pictures. I have the Canon Rebel T4i. Thanks.
    Here is the ten gallon.

    Really nice pictures and appear very clear to me so I'm lost what someone could tell you to improve the photo's.

    Very pretty fish and the planting is really well done - super tank.
    Knowledge is fun(damental)

    A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.

    As Cerment said, your pictures look fine to me. I'm proud of my tanks but I can never take decent pictures (up close) of them so I don't post to many.

    Anyway your tank looks great and it's good to see somebody keeping fish we don't always see here on the forum.

    Thanks. I plan on adding two Gardneri Killi's soon or I might add another pair of Australe, I cannot decide yet.

    Well done, es! Beautiful tank, fish and pictures. I really love their colors. If I ever get killifish again, I'll probably opt for the more colorful Australes or Gardneris. Are they as inquisitive and interesting to watch as the Golden Wonders? Mine, while not as impressive as these, are still very fun to watch. =]

    Can't wait to see more.

    Thanks for the compliments. Kevin they are a very interesting fish to watch. Especially when the male rubs up against the female. They don't stay on the top like the golden. The two stay on the bottom more. And sometimes the female hangs around the top

    Very awesome tank!

    For getting clear pictures, you are going to have to make sure your ISO, shutter speed, and aperture are properly set. Keeping the camera super still helps, too. I recommend a good tripod. Avoid using flash when taking pictures of aquariums.

    Tip: try to shoot your pictures perpendicularly to the glass. Shooting at an angle is going to distort the picture.

    To keep it simple, you want your shutter speed set fast for fast moving objects, like fish. When you raise your shutter speed, the images will be darker. To compensate for that, lower your aperture. As far as ISO goes, high ISO will make the image more grainy. Start high, and if you like the quality, stick with it. If it's too grainy for you, lower it.

    I recommend only changing one setting at a time so you can see for yourself the difference the change made in the picture quality.

    When it comes to taking good pictures, knowing what your camera can do is key. Watch some tutorial videos for your particular camera on Youtube. There are tons of videos that can get you started, and have you taking some awesome pictures in no time.

    I didn't mention lens because that's a whole different story. Start with the camera settings, then move onto different lens if necessary.

    If you need some more help, PM me.
