It's an Olympus PEN E-P3. Still learning how to use it, but it takes nice shots of the tank when using the flash.
And I love the corys too. I've never owned them before, but am kicking myself for not getting them sooner. They are fun to watch! They're more like puppies than fish they way they seem to play together. Awesome little guys. (Although there's only two in the pic, I have a school of six at this point).

Dang! Nice pics. Please come over to my house and take pics of my rainbows. My rainbows are beautiful, but their owner is a complete dunce with a camera.125g - 6 Zig Zag Rainbows, 6 Turquoise Rainbows, 6 Boesmani Rainbows, 5 otos, 6 corys

The Rainbows are SO HARD to shoot! They never stay still long enough to get a good shot.

Those are fantastic photos!! Well done!
Are all those fish from the same tank? Can you toss up a stock list? Do you have dwarf gouramis with tiger barbs?75G Planted Community Tank:

I know I'm going to take some flak for this stock, but I'm just now returning to the hobby and all of the fish are happy and healthy for now, so cut me some slack. :)
The tank is a 40-ish gallon, custom-built corner-style my wife and I bought years ago that I just recently set up for my 2-year old daughter to enjoy. Filtration is handled by the biggest Eheim Ecco Pro.
The stock includes:
8 x Tiger Barbs (5 females, 3 males)
6 x Harlequin Rasboras
4 x Australian Rainbows
5 x Red Serpae Tetras
2 x Dwarf Gouramis
6 x Peppered Corys
1 x Rainbow Shark
The Red flame gourami and the rainbow shark are the most aggressive in the tank. The Red Flame is PITA most of the time, but the shark only gets nutty during feeding time. The barbs typically only mess with eachother, thankfully. Nothing can catch the rainbows or rasboras. The corys are my favorites--those htings are so fun.
The Neon gourami takes a bit of a licking from the Red Flame, but he's got his favorite cave that he defends and has been doing OK.
