Cool, you can be #078! Enjoy the lens!

I used manual mode with manual focus. Aperture of 5 (I believe) and exposure between 1/25 and 1/40 of a second. I touched up the images in GIMP by playing with the brightness/contrast slightly and a very little bit with Red/Cyan and Yellow/Blue color balance.

My Dad's oscar was looking pretty photogenic. The oscar is about 8 inches small and has been with us for about 6 months.
Not bad at all, especially considering the (lack of) available light! I really like the bubbles shot.
