No, when I first brought him home, he seemed indifferent. He kinda developed this fear. Its so strange.

I've been shooting various animals since I was 5. None of them will do what you want when you want it. I enjoy shooting my fish tanks, I take about a zillion shots and delete all but the good ones. Nice thing about digital. I need a little better lighting in my office to shoot my betta properly. I get a lot irridescent coloring with my flash and not enough light to shoot without the flash. Lots of practice and patience will usually pay off with that one great shot you were trying to get.

I know this isnt of a betta but I recently took this AMAZING picture of a lizard and my camera is a crappy camera- its nothing special xD

Cool lizard! what kind of camera do you suggest me to use? All of my cameras take fuzzy shots. I focus real hard but they come out blurry.

The minibows aren't too bad with distortion. I keep my betta in a 2.5 and the only problem photographing him that I have is getting him to sit still long enough for me to focus manually (autofocus likes to focus on the front of the tank even when I shoot close).

I always prefer natural sunlight from a window, I feel it's second to none when it comes to representing the fish's color and overall quality of the shot.

here's a few photo's I took using natural light.

I like to use natural light too, but I have an office with no windows. My Sapphire is getting better about posing for me, and I am going to bring in an extra light to see if that helps to catch the natural colors. He has a new ship ornament and I would like to catch him coming out of it. One way I have less trouble with a flash is shooting from farther away from the tank and using my zoom to close up on the tank. I can always edit the photos later to enlarge the area I want. I mostly use my cheap Kodak point and shoot, but I do have a good Kodak Z990 at home.

Did you use an app to take and edit the pic? If you did, can you tell me the name of the app? Sorry, its just that i'm always trying to find something to take super good pics of Rubin, especially since Photo+ is making the pics super blurry.

I can edit pictures from my camera. I crop up on the part I want and keep the good part. Then delete the original shot.
