Blue Mandarin Dragonette

Hello all, this is my first post in Pentax Forums. I got hooked on Pentax from my deceased father-in-law's (never met him) K1000, and bought a K100D Super. This picture was taken at a zoo near me. What do you folks think of it?

It was taken with the kit lens (18-55mm) and I believe with flash. ISO was 800. Only editing done was clone stamping out white particles floating in the water. They were distracting to me.

Beautiful! Nice sharp little fish, although the picture looks a touch on the blue side to me.

great shot, really nice one, as Pooky125 says, you could play with WB a bit, but it's still great

Thank you both for the feedback. I will try adjusting WB today and see what kind of results I get.
