Hi,
Dach wrote: What kind of camera did you use and what settings? I'm looking into buying a camera this holiday season - something that will help me take some nice pictures of my fish. Also, what features should I look for?
Sorry for the delay on the answer! My old camera (she had a problem and I´m buying a new one) was a Canon EOS 20D. The pics were taken in manual mode with a speed around 1/125 and 1/250, with more than f11 (to allow a good deep) and always with the flash. The specs necessary for this kind of pictures are the manual mode and a good shutter speed (around 1/4000 is already a good one) - now I´m gonna buy the Canon EOS 1000D.

Meanwhile, the red rainbow spawn two more times. Here´s another video and another good and happy moment! But first 2 pictures...

I always thought that this tropheus was a male. Wrong...! She was the one that spawn today...

Hi,

I had almost a year ago 8 WC nkonde. They went to a friend fishroom. Now I manage to get almost 60 F1. The bigger ones are almost 6 cm and the smallest around 3. Here are some pics:

Hi,

Today was fishing day to take out some of the nkonde and put in 12 duboisi maswa. In this aquarium I only have those 12 along with 12 nkonde yellow

Here are some photos and videos:
