    Hi, yes, I took this picture at the top of my 15gal tall tank. The blue comes from a blue photographic gel that is attached to the back glass of the tank (not just for the photo). I used a Nikon D200 camera with a 105mm macro lens, shot with an aperture of f45 (note, not f4.5, but f45!). I used a large soft-box strobe light positioned above, and also some strobe fills positioned at the sides, and white bounce cards to light the overall scene. I had to use a lot of light because I wanted to use a very small aperture opening on the lens (f45) to increase the depth of field. Otherwise, it was just be very blurry immediately in front and behind the focus point.
