The only way I've gotten good pictures is by standing 6-10 feet away from the tank, zooming in on it, and then snapping the picture. Afterwards, you can crop out anything you don't want in the picture.

But if you don't have zoom, I've got no idea. D;

Try the macro setting and/or tilting the camera so it's angled away from the tank

I've read where some people on this forum keep the tank lights on and the room lights off.
Haven't tried it myself but I plan to.

I turn the flash OFF and the macro setting on. Turn off all the lights in the room except for the tank light. If you don't have a light atop of your tank, get a small desk lamp or something of the sort and hold it over your fish. You will get LOTS of blurry shots, but take a lot, and your bound to get a few good ones!

OK Romad. I've gotta see a close up of your icon... that super red HM is amazing...

I take about 50 to get one good one without the flash. I do the same thing, I use only the tank light. The only good flash pic I ever got was my avatar pic and I think I took that from above, pointing down instead of straight on.

Thanks. That's Blaze and he is a beauty. I've got tons of blurry pics of all my guys but I'm going to try what you suggest. Crossing fingers for some great shots.

I've got a CT that has the most amazing colors too.
