Thanks so much, I saw him sitting still and I thought the reflection was a cool picture, so I grabbed the camera and captured the moment. Lucky!
Also, my camera is a basic point and shoot. What I do is put the mode on shutter speed priority and for my lighting I find 1/40 to 1/60 is pretty good. Then, when I upload the picture, I adjust the lighting more with photoshop. Thats about it!55 Gallon Freshwater Tank (semi-planted) 48"x21"x13"

Just keep in mind that minor adjustments for contrast and brightness are OK for pics entered in the comps, but major changes/editing to pic will disqualify it from being entered in the comps.
Thanks for posting the tip about shutter speed, I will try that with my camera.If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
