    in my tank when i take pics of fast fish i usually use an iso of about 300 fstop around 5.6 a focal length of 55mm and a shutter speed of 1/125th i use a flash but as long as your taking the picture on an angle your too zoomed to see the glare from it.
    works for me!

    OK, I've become a little more familiar with my camera (Canon xsi 450D) and can offer the following.

    First, with fish pictures I always use my flash. You CAN take photos without it, but they are always way too dark and you need to slow the shutter speed (I seldom go less than 100) in order bto get the proper lighting, but not at a cost. BLURRS! I almost always keep my shutter speed at 200! This means I have to raise my ISO to 800 or 1600 in order to get more light. OR you can lower the F number (forgot what it's called.....aperature?) which will brighten the pic up a bit, but you lose depth of field by doing that.

    For ME.....a shutter speed of 40 is way too slow.

    Well, the problem with getting into an ISO of 1600 is you get a lot of noise in the shot. If you are using a flash, there are a few tricks to that as well. First of all, it is best to have the flash remote and pointed down into the tank if possible, however if that is not possible, a good way to diffuse the flash is by pointing the flash upwards (if you have a variable angle flash, not just the pop-up one on the camera) or another thing that doesn't work too bad is to use the "slow-sync" setting for your flash. Best option is to have a remote flash that shoots down and the second best would be diffusing the flash by pointing it up.

    Mith, the key to being able to take shots with no flash at all is to have a well lit tank. My tank has 8x39w T5HO lighting on it. :)
