nice looking setup. I've been hoping that some helleri would pop up on some vendors list here in the US

Thanks :)

Use a extended flasher on top of the tank, so u get a naturel light fall ;)

For the photos i use different settings, but i started experimenting with them.
Normally u use settings as, ISO 100 - 400, F4 - F8, and a shutterspeed around 150 or higher.
At the moment i'm experimenting with them... Flash, ISO 100 - 400, F20 - F25 and a shutterspeed around 50 till 3000.

But no good results yet to show ;)
