    I kept shrimp at one point. This one is less than 1" long. I was using a macro lens mounted on a bellows unit for larger than life shots.


    I also kept small catfish for awhile.






    If you want to practice fish photography, this fish will challenge you. Very fast swimmer.
    You must anticipate where it will be. I spent days in front of my tank trying to get a decent shot.

    One of the cool things I experienced while keeping cichlids is how they act while caring for their young.
    They get pretty defensive when protecting eggs. Didn't like that I was looking into the tank.


    Just taking the kids for a swim around the tank.


    There is always the potential to have a lot of babies.

    These guys can get big. This one was about 8" long. They get much larger than that.


    These stay about 3" long.


    I had a planted tank for a short while. Had a few loaches. Still have the one on the left.

    I've owned pikes over the years but none as colorful as the second one. Awesome!
    Big fan of loaches and botias also. Very nice.
    Excellent pictures. Thanks for sharing.
