Fantastic! They are such beautiful fish.

I love the fins on the Veiltails - what amazing shades of red - it looks like silk...

Hi, PALS
I gave to my self almost a month a good vacation?:P
But next, of course, was too much retrieve on work and stuffs?:angry:

So, here I go again?
I will continue with another representative of Tetras family, which I?m sure, more of you like more
and try to show the most expressive details of that lovely fish?
So, that how look my <span style='color:quot'>Nematobrycon Palmeri</span> <span style='color:quot'>? The Emperor?s Tetra</span>:

Image


May be the first important thing to say, is that, why they call it <span style='color:quot'>?The Emperor?s Tetra??</span>
Here is the answer:


Image


Of course, the male ?brings the heavy crown? and often flaunt it and his colorfully dress?


Image


The female is looking quite modest?


Image


The other typical feature is their <span style='color:quot'>blue eyes</span> ? so magnificent and so hard to take a good shot on it using a flash?


Image


May be some of you didn?t see the Black (purple) cousin of the Palmeri, who is enough expressive too:


Image


And as you guess I like to do, for the Tetras post final?
To All keepers of that beautiful fish ? don?t forget! They got very evil teeth?...Image Image

Amazing photos Aquasaur! :tup: How do you manage to get the photos of the teeth? I tried it with my tetas: I can see the teeth, but they are never visible on the pics!

Privet Katya,
first, I'm curious - what is your final photo equipment?especially the lenses and flashes?!?
As you know, I?m shooting with EF 50 mm/f2.5 Compact-Macro
and it?s a little bit different than other macro lenses ? the angle of shooting,
the speed of focusing, the lightning which is needed??
Anyway, try to catch the fish doesn?t moving too fast (better when it freezing for the moment)
and use the Exposure time around 1/120 seconds;
Aperture value: F 5.60 ? 9.00; ISO depending of the fish specific 100-200.
Make the camera focusing only with one point (not with possible 7 points!)
and take a careful sight exactly on the teeth (not any millimeter around)!
Better use the tripod for the optimal focusing!
And finally ? you will need much tanks lightning for taking enough easy and fast focusing?!
+ corrected power of the external flashes (better they are 2 or 3)!
Usually, staying on tripod, my camera is connected with my laptop,
where I may see immediately and correct the options with the first experimental shots?
In other way, you have to make too much shots, till you get the right options? ;)
That?s all.
:D

Hey, Pals
Can you say at once ? what is that fish ?BATMAN??Image Image

Image

:D Image :rolleyes: :D









OK, I?m just joking? it?s easy guess ?rotate the pic on 180 degrees and that is:

Image

and if somebody wondering still, what is that fish ?
the answer is - Toracocharax Securis (from Central American?s area)

Image

and that?s another more popular its cousin(from PERU) - Carnegiella Strigata:

Image

Here they are schooling in the tank, mostly under water surface area?

Image

So, in that kind of looking?these fishes are not much impressive?
But I had trying to get some close up macro shots and catch some magnificent fascination of them?
sometimes almost transparently?other time - distracting the lights by unique way?Image


Image

Image

Image

They haven?t so horrible teeth?but it?s not quite harmless?;)

Hehhee - I love your macro shots!
Those teeth freaked my friends out - scary!

I love the way you capture the colours, and the way you turned the fish upside down - that made me laugh... :D

Hristo:
My camera is Canon 350D with an EFS 60mm 2.8
My two other lenses are kit (18-55) and zoom (75-300).
I also use: Canon 30D, EF 100mm 2.8 and a Canon Speedlite 580EX with a diffuser.
Other lenses I use are EF 70-200mm IS 2.8, EF 50mm 1.4 and TS-E 24mm 3.5

I use a tripod and flash when taking fish photos now days. I use the full range of F stops from 2.8 (for eye only focus) to 13 (for whole body focus). Shutter speeds are no less then 1/60 but sometimes higher, although i am considering trying lower ones at some point to see if I can get a bit of motion into photos. The rest is same as what you do! ;)

Beautiful photos! I love the composition in the first one, very cunning!

60 tanks? :blink: I never expected that of you Hristo! Would be interesting to see shots of the way you have them arranged!
