      Purty fush. How can you tell it's a male congo tetra by the way?

          That was a picture from when it was a few months younger. The females looked much different, even then. Now it is quite obvious that it is a male, the finnage is much longer and the rainbow effects down his side are much more apparent. Will try and get a more recent pic up. They are hard to photograph though.

              Wow ... I like these, especially the first one, something about that composition. I bet these little guys are hard to photograph, I doubt they would ever sit still. Do you mind sharing some details on the equipment used?

              I had a go at tweaking 2 of the images that seemed a bit dark, I hope you don't mind. I'm no pro at photoediting, I bet the originals for these could be tweaked up really nice.

                Those look much better, thanks Brian. Unfortunately I don't have photoshop at home.

                I use a canon 20D with a vivitar 55mm macro and a remote flash unit on top of the tank. F8 Iso 400 and depending on the fish and flash levels usually about 1/160s. Because I only have one flash unit, there is only a small column in the tank where the flash is effective and depending on the depth of the fish, the picture can be very dark or very bright! I take the photos at night in a darkened room to minimise tank reflections.
