You found nemo! I was wondering where he got lost to this time.

I love all of these! They are all so original too, I think this is the first time I've seen coral reef tank photos like this without actually seeing the tank in them, you were able to get all of these little species like you would with us air breathing creatures in such good focus and depth of field. The last one is really stunning too, I love the green in it too!

These are all very impressive shots here! I have never tried to take pictures of my friend’s fish tank but these photos just persuaded me to give it a try. I really like all the colors in your shots as well; they really make the photo pop!

thanks everyone. It is extremely difficult to take photos of a tank. Many hours of trial and error. Because of the glass light refraction, you MUST take a shot straight on. Turn off all the pumps, and clean the glass. Nemo was the toughest to take because he moves around so much.
