how to take a good picture of a betta?

Anybody have any ideas on how to take a good picture of Marley? I'd like to be able to get as much detail as I can because his fins are red with blue tips, and his body is red with a blue 'sheen' to it....I want to be able to see as much of that in the picture as possible. I have a digital camera by the way and right now I'm having trouble with the auto focus focusing on the plant instead of him.
Thanks!!

What kind of camera is it? Maybe try a manual setting instead of auto focus.

when i take pics of fish and stuff i have to put my camera on macro or super-macro (helps for close up objects)
also my camera (and most do) has a feture where you push down the button a little bit so it can focus without taking the picture.
a bright tank also helps to bring out the colors in your fish. and i dont use flash bcuz my fish does not appretiate getting blasted and temporary blinded.

what kind of camera do you have?

i agree w/ the lighting... other than cam set up and specs the only things left to do is have a bright aquarium to bring out marley's lovely features!

I have a pretty old digital camera, only 5 megapixels. I tried adding some lighting and it still didn't help much...I think maybe I just need a new camera!

that would be a good idea, try to find one (although most come with it already) with a macro seting; super helpful
