I put one of the adult Honduram managuense from the pond int the special photo tank that I made. This guy is easily thirteen inches...so there wasn't much room for the fish to move around in the twenty gallon tank..I got quite a few photos like this one:



And I almost packed it in. Generally the fish has to get acclimated in a new tank when coming from the pond...new room with a view syndrome. All of a sudden I was shocked to see that the fish started reacting to me and the lens. I take the photos with all of the lights off. And with the 105mm Macro lens I am generally six foot from the tank. For about fifteen minutes he just literally lost his mind flaring and biting. Glad I didn't shut it down now.





I also got one of my favorite "hoover vacuum" shots.

It's common name is either the Jaguar Cichlid...or the Aztec Cichlid.

Thanks.
