Sometimes I think I lose way too much of my pictures by cropping around the fish. I've started playing around with other types of shots and I like these pictures better.

(Oops, how did that mbuna get in the Victorian section)

I'm also trying to sharpen less or not at all to soften the picture plus I want a background that is dark but visible. Here's what I have so far. My tanks aren't that heavily stocked so I can capture only one or two fish in the frame.

I like these better actually Kevin. Your others seem along the lines of documenting a species, which they do very well, do not get me wrong, and still are amazing. These seem more like portraits, or candids of them in the environment the live with. More about the individual fish than the species. Lovely pictures :D

I really like these naturalistic shots, but I also really like your cropped shots.

I refuse to choose :?

I think I prefer these, too. (Not that the cropped images aren't stunning)

Is that a Tropheops sp. in that last one?

Not to hijack, but it looks to me like Tropheops sp. Chilumba Mphanga Rocks, but then Kevin will know for sure what it is.

Wow, didn't think red tail sheller's had that much blue for some reason. Nice.
