  • more shot of my Geo's "image heavy"

    well after having a bit of a scare in the tank last week with what i thought might have been fish MB and having to cull one of my best looking male Geo's
    it's looking like it wasn't what i thought "phew"
    i also ran out of Co2 in the tank and now the geo's are looking better than ever, so won't be running Co2 in the tank anymore as they seem much happier without it

    also finally getting the hang of taking pics with the DSLR without the flash now too and getting better "more natural" results i think.

                Cheers guys

                full name of the fish are : geophagus araguaia "orange head"
                iv'e brought juvi's @ 5cm for around $15ea and sub adults for around $55ea
                just depends on size and if from a breeder or lfs.

                to take these photo's i put quite a bit of light over the top of the tank. and settings on the camera were F2.8 ISO 400 exp 1/50th

                camera is just a Pentax KX and a Tamron 90mm DI 1:1

                      I find it hard taking crisp photos with a setting such as "F2.8 ISO 400 exp 1/50th "

                      The F stop isnt high enough to product a very sharp image, ISO i try and make as close to 100 and the speed is hard to control when i take pictures of fish.

                      I always wonder why it seems as if it was "low" light with the setting when you have over 150W over the top of the tank.

                      But your pictures capture every detail of the fish with very beautiful colours

                              i think the males have the longer streamers on the tail fins and also my males seem to have more blue on the pelvic fins. not 100% sure on this though ?

                              put some pics up here if you want as the link you PM'd me didn't work.
