Those pictures are gorgeous! Do you mind sharing some tips on how you get those pics? I'm lucky if my boy stays still long enough :)

This guy just poses naturally, he pretty much moves in slow motion and holds his poses for the camera so photos of him are quite easy. My other guys are hard to do though

I only recently discovered how to make black backgrounds like that, basically you just raise the f stop so the camera can only take black photos and then use the flash to illuminate the fish only. Very easy and you dont even need a black background for it because the camera thinks everything is black.
The hard part is figuring how much flash you need to use, so theres a bit of trial and error before you find the right settings for your fish...only problem now is that Ive messed with the settings and cant remember what ones I used to take normal photos...so Im going back to trial and error again haha

Little Fruit Tingles! What sort of colours are you seeing from this pairing? Mostly similar to what is shown in the nets?

So, (completely off topic) Trilobite, do you actually collect any trilobites/ other fossils?

Haha I had some really nice ammonites but not trilobites. There was actually a cool shop back home that had all types of fossils, rocks and minerals, even little fossilized fish

I studied geology and actually hated sedimentology, but fossils were the only part I payed attention in. Then one day I decided to join a forum and fossils were on my mind so tried trilobite and it was free

@TribalElephant , they will be eventually if you are in australia
