My daughter bought a new camera so I bought her old one to try and improve my livestock pictures. So far it's much better than the antique I was using. Here's a picture of a juvenile male Apistogramma cacatoides and young Corydoras weitzmani playing among the snails.

Nice shots. Aquarium photography is frustrating for me. It takes me a lot of shots to get a good up close picture...Neutral

+1 = me.... I've all but given up.

However, I tip my hat to you Finzz - maybe your daughter can practice using her NEW camera on your tanks? Very Happy

Gorgeous shots! Now we need details - what is the camera, and what settings are you using? Also, for me I have to add light on my deeper tanks in order to get a decent shot, since the regular lighting that seems fine is inadequate for a good pic of these moving targets.

Thanks for the kind words. I'm in the same boat as some of you, it seems; somewhere on a learning curve.

@Liz , The camera is a Nikon Coolpix L830, but as far as the settings go, I'll have to get back to you when I find something that works consistently. I was more or less playing by ear.

I haven't found the perfect setting either. Videos seem a bit easier... Cool
