These fish look their best lit with natural light, when the aquarium lights are off. kinda hard to take a picture of that though! Ah well, this is the best I could do.

I took another go at ambient light fish pics this morning. You really can't avoid getting your own reflection in them, but I think this set does a better job of conveying the really great coloration these fish have.

Also, I have to say - modern cameras are amazing. Tracking focus through aquarium glass and usable ISO 12,800. We've come a long way from the film cameras I grew up on!

What camera and lens are you using?
It's a Sony a7rIII with a 24mm f1.4 lens. I have had a lot of lenses in my days, but I think this one is my favorite. I should note that photography has been my longest hobby, and - before aquariums (!) - where all my hobby money went. A fair amount of that money went into this camera/lens combo.

Never thought I would find a hobby more expensive than photography, but here we are! lol.

That is my other hobby also. I have the a7rll but I use legacy manual focus lenses. My favorite are Leica because of the color rendition.

oh nice! i started with the OG a7r and waited until the IV dropped to upgrade to the III. I also use the fuji X system. for years before going all digital i was all about medium format film. i had various MF cameras, but the hasselblad 500cm was my favorite. those old zeiss lenses were so good. my zeiss 50f4 was my all time fav until i got this sony 24mm.

In keeping with the fish fashion blog theme I've got going... I took a few pics of the shellies in my wife's office this evening. Nothing to do with this tank, but there's nowhere else for them to go.
