Emperor Tetras in a 20g Planted Tank

hey everyone,

Have been on for a while, lurking, thought it was time to introduce myself. I am Edward. I run a little website you may have heard of, called The Aquatic Photography Forum (aquatic-photography.com). Here is my first offering on this site, not the last though. I will show you more soon.

How are they doing in a 20 gallon?
They are doing great, they are extremely aggressive eaters, I had to relearn feeding my other fish, a ram colony (will post pics later) to get them enough food, as the tetras eat until all the food is gone.

For most of my aquatic stuff, I use Canon 20d w/100mm 2.8 lens or 24-70L, with STE2 controller and 580ex and 420ex flashes.

wow they are beautiful, the emperors I saw at LFS are a lot like black neons, and most of them motionless, perhaps too stressed out

A very strange and beautiful tetra - no adipose fin. Glad you're done lurking, Ed. Do you mind giving some specs on your photos (camera, settings, etc)? Clearly, you have much to teach .

Thanks for the kind words guys. These were done with my typical setup. Canon 20d body, 100mm 2.8 Macro lens, Wireless Flash on top glass pointed down (420ex) activated by on-shoe 580ex flash acting as a master, pointed up. Settings are: ISO 100, 1/250, F8 for most shots.

Severum? You mean this:



Not my best photo But the fish is a favorite of all mine.
