First Macro Shots

I've just bought a raynox macro lens for my wife's Canon G12 and gave it a test shoot tonight. Here are my 3 best.

I'm a very novice photographer without a dslr so id really appreciate advice from those with a bit more experience.

Thanks. The G12 must be a few years old now, pretty sure they're up to a g15 or something. For our purposes it's a great camera, and the raynox turns it into a neat little package for my fishy shots.

These were taken with tank lights only. I'm tossing up an extension lead and external flash for above tank, as I'd love a faster shutter speed. Not sure if anyone uses a similar setup?

Thanks folks. I especially like the bristlenose one, although its a shame the male was a bit camera shy. His forest of bristles would make for an awesome pic.
