Thanks! Those two angels pictures are my big males. They are massive! Each controls one side of the tank, and they always battle it out right in the middle. Pretty fun to watch them

Thanks Nick! For this set and the one before it I simply placed the speedlight on the glass center brace pointing down in the water. I used by SB-900 with the plastic diffusor cap on it, which automatically adjusts the flash zoom to its widest angle of 10mm.

These were shot at 1/200th, ISO 200, and f/13-f/16. 1/200th is my maximum flash sync speed, so I never go faster than 1/200th since after that it greatly reduces the flash output.
