Rainbows are probabley one of my favorite family of fish. Great photos, I wish I was as handy with the camera.

Stunning photos, can you please post some camera and settings details which you used to capture them? I would really appreciate if you could tell me how much lighting do you have over your aquarium.

Thanks, for compliments, Pals !
For more of the shots I used the camera’s flash with diffuser or putting externally Speedlite 430EX over the tank,
for some of them – the tank lightning:







As You see - there is 5 luminescent T5 Silvanya "Gro lux".(It seems also one of the UV sterilizators)
My camera is CANON 350D with Canon lens 50 mm/f2.5 Macro (but frankly speaking it is not really fast at focusing…)
The usual settings:
Shutter Speed: 1/200 seconds
Aperture Value: f/14-22(dependent on the fish specific and fishes posission)
ISO Speed Ratings: 100-400(dependent on the fish specific)

Thanks for the details, thats why your getting such great depth of field, your using such small apertures. My only problem was that I wasnt using a flash, so to get a decent shutter speed I was using large apertures such as F2 . I will try to fire the flashes over the tank than and see what happens.

Thanks again, Dieni
