Thanks
The biggest thing I did was put an 18w compact fluorescent over it. The actual light for that tank is a somewhat dim homemade LED fixture (it's a low tech tank). You really need lots of light for photos, though.

I think the camera settings were 1/100, f 5, ISO 400 and the white balance adjusted for fluorescent

Ah, you have a fancier camera than I do, I can not manually adjust setting, I believe that makes a large difference. But I never thought of trying to simply add more light to the tank, that's an excellent idea!

Thanks!

Here's my 34 litre (~9 gal.) Aqua One. It used to be a goldfish tank before I bought them a much larger one, but I've kept it running as a tropical tank for about a year now. This is before all the crypts melted and I had to start again.



A re-scape that I did recently.
