Here are just a few of the pictures Nichola has taken of our fish recently.

It's painful putting up the reduced size pictures because you lose so much of the detail but hopefully they're good enough for you to get the idea. :D

Absolutely love that last shot. What kind of camera was used to take these?? I take tons of photos of my fish, I just can't get enough of them!

Thanks all. She uses a Canon 500D and a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 L IS USM macro lens. We'll try cleaning the glass a bit better next and then maybe try out a tripod. Got some loach pictures to come eventually.

If anyone has any hints, tips, bit of experience to share etc, please head over to this thread:
