He`s lovely!!

What would you say his colour is? He looks very similar to an opaque I`ve seen a picture of and thought I`d like to get next.

He's more white than anything, With blue on his top fin
Picture doesn't show it exactly right
Hard to get a picture to show the colors just right,

Might have to invest in a camera meant for aquarium taking someday soon.

I do a lot of photography, particularly of animals, and taking pics of fish is tough! My suggestions for the best photos and showing colors in the truest way is to avoid flash, if possible. set your camera to a low light setting to avoid flash, or if you have a flash filter, that helps a little bit to avoid the glare on the glass. You can also try macro mode, if your cam does it (I shoot with a full manual SLR so i'm not sure what you have) but that sometimes helps to get details.
congrats on the new fishies! i'm still curious about where you keep all these guys!

Oh my gosh! You're so crazy! Haha. I can hardly take care of this one!

But I love your new fish - the black on his top fin is great!

And the fish in your icon is partially what inspired me to stray away from the seemingly more traditional blue/purple. So gorgeous!

Thanks for the tips,
I have tried without flash, But then the fish never sit still long enough,
I have macro mode on all my settings, I use it often too,
I have several camera's The main one I use right now is a Canon power shot 10.0 mega pixels.
It has a tun of settings, including under water,
It Has
C, M, Av, Tv, P, Auto, Portrait, Landscape, Night scene, Indoor, Snow, Beach, Fireworks, Underwater, Color accent, Color swap, Night shot, Kids & pets, Foliage, Stitch assist,and movie, I've tried messing in all the settings, Sometimes I get fairly good pics, other times I can't do crap,
Any good ideas on what mode and settings I should try, I'm open to any new Ideas I might not have thought of or tried yet.

I'm sorry but I have no camera. But anyway, one is a male crowntail and he is kind of a rusty color.He's really tiny. The other is a blue female. Here I was telling everyone that I've never had a problem with a fish not eating and my new female is spitting out her pellets. The male is eating pretty good, though.I put her in a 1 gallon with a light on the top and him in a 2 1/2 gallon critter keeper. I'm shopping for a heater for the 2 1/2 gallon today.
