Nice shots, some of them could benefit from a shallower DOF I think... Specifically #2. You must have an impressive lighting setup to be able to to close the aperture way down.

Which species is #3&4?

Well, #2 was taken in a photo tank, where the whole depth before the plants behind the glass were, was around 1.5". That is why the moss came out so well. I agree it's a tad busy but it's mono color so it does not bother me so much.

And there is no "lighting setup" it's a flash from above, triggered by a wireless controller. That is it. One flash.

Sorry, can't help you on the species.
