Cherry Red Shrimp

One of my little pals hanging out on some Anubias root.

I haven't got much experience shooting in a tank. This was using a Nikon D5100, Sigma 105mm f/2.8 ex dg, with a speedlight for fill flash.

1/125 sec.
ISO 200

I still haven't got setting worked out to get clean macro shots in a tank without flash. The tank has a 2x28 Watt T5NOs, and a T10 so there's a lot of light, but it's still not enough to get a decent shutter speed.

Great shot!

I would up the ISO to 800 and adjust the shutter speed accordingly. Then, in post processing, take out what little noise there is (if any, depending on camera)
