    I cant really take credit for any decent photos I take, my camera does all the real work I just tweek a few settings and click the shutter. You may want to try increasing the lighting over the tank and playing with your ISO values, my 150G usually has to have pics at 400ISO

    Killer, you're just way to modest when it comes to tank\fish pictures. Yeah, it's nice to have a technically advanced camera, but you still have to understand how to get the setting just right in order to capture the amazing pictures that you do.

    I am getting more into photography, still very much a noob tho. I am however looking into buying a D700 body within the next year. My current D60 is starting to feel limiting already. Fortunatly with a higher end nikon pretty much all lenses are interchangeable so there wont be that cost

    just got my oscar "Jake" this weekend. Any suggestions as to how long to keep his light on for? Right now he has just a dusting of gravel covering the bottom and a fake tree stump along with 2 small rocks in the tank. What would you reccomend putting in the tank as decor to make Jake feel safe and comfortable. Water temp is at 80 degrees right now. I'm running a 4 bio wheel hob system and a small canister. Let me know what you think!

    What other fish are in the tank?
    How big is the tank?
    More filtration is always best with oscars.
    I have plastic and silk plants in my tank for that o's to wrestle with.They also enjoy moving driftwood around and digging in the substrate!lol
    I think they should all have stuff to move around the tank.Its part of their need to redecorate when ever they are in the mood.lol
    Put a red and white fishing bobber in there too. It will have a great time with it.

    It's just a 12 inch oscar in a 75 gallon tank. I will definitely put a bobber in there. Thanks. Still deciding on decor.

    I have heard myths(No proofs as of yet) about Oscars choking on the substrate.
    I have had several and none have choked on sand or gravel ever but they sure do like to move it around.
    I like having stuff in the tank for them to play with.It helps to let your fish's personality out and gives them something to do.I think it may easily become a favorite fish.
    I have my lights on at least 12hrs a day.Sometimes longer.
    They are big fans of bright lights.
