Congrats Krib32. What a great fish and great super clear photo. How did you get him to stay still for that photo? What model camera are you using? What setting did you use for the photo? What type of lighting did you use?

Coming in second place was Barry Tetra with his cute little Chinese algae eater. Nice photo. Congrats for the runner up win!

Thanks to all members who participated in this contest. Next up is our Tank of the Month contest which starts on March 1st. It will feature Nano tanks sized at 16 US gallons (60.6 litres) or less. If you have a tank that size, I hope you will enter TOTM.

Thanks! He stayed still for about a half a second which was just enough for me to get a clear picture, I also had the camera on the shutter priority setting and had the shutter speed cranked way up which helped "freeze" the fish resulting in a clear detailed photo. For my camera I use a Canon EOS Rebel SL2 and the light was a nicrew sky led.

Very nice, I have a lot to learn about photographing fish! The best picture of a fish I have is probably my avatar/profile picture. (My betta, Blaze)

Yup taking pictures of fish is pretty hard.

I took that picture with an Apple iPad Mini 4 which doesn’t have the best camera to begin with. :(
