Taking good photos of cichlids
I want to see if anyone has any tips for taking great photos of cichlids. I want to post some on here and my website, and I don't have much experience...
Any suggestions would be much appreciated!"It's not the strongest, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the ones that are most adaptable."

0If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?

Couple good tips just off the cuff:
1. Always clean your glass before taking pictures. Seems obvious but a lot of people forget and you can see smudges, fingerprints, or hard water marks ruining a good picture.
2. Always use a tripod.
3. Keep your tank lights on and turn all of the lights in the room off. Works best at night, no glare on the glass, and the tank is lit up perfectly.Money can't buy happiness, but it sure can pay the rent.
