How to make the best photo as possible of your planted tank

Contests are coming. But how do you make the best final shot as possible?

Some info about settings, equipment and setup.

Here is an example of using external flash. I didn't share my full tank shot because I am entering contests with it. But here is a detail shot.

Thanks for posting. Lots of good information there, especially about the use of reflective surfaces and flash positioning.
You're welcome and some random tips that I didn't include in the video are:
Always make the room dark only light of tank on.
Clean the glass on both sides before shooting photos.

Next is there any demand for a macro photography video with post production tips?
