Post pics of your tanks: good composition for a painting please!

Hi. I am in art school, and I would really like someone to give me a really great photograph of a fish I can paint. Either one fish or a bunch, or a school, in a planted tank. Preferably a clean set-up with a nice composition.
Post pictures please!
Who knows, maybe I'll do many!
Thanks!
Clare

Btw: a good composition for a painting is very similar if not the same as a good composition for a photograph.

I would love to accommodate you, but not sure I should post pics of my tank because I only use artifical plants. Still, they look realistic and I have some very nice scapings with them, along with some neat fish, that could be inspiring. I include rocks and wood along with my "plants", even a jellyfish in the tank (faux, of course, but very, very realistic looking).

You tell me -- would find this acceptable for your purpose, and would any of the moderators or admins object?
