Thanks MK :)

The camera is a Canon EOS Rebel T2i and the lens is a Tamron ultra-wide-angle zoom lens SP AF10-24mm F/3.5-4.5 Di II. Settings change from shot to shot, but the metadata from that last image was:

f/6.3, 1/60, ISO 1600
Exposure mode: manual
Focal Length: 24mm
White Balance: Auto
Metering mode: Evaluative
No flash

Lighting was, for that shot: one 48" T8 fixture (with four bulbs) that is about 8-foot high and about 4-foot in front of the tank. This fixture had two Hagen T8 Power-Glo 48" Fluorescent Bulbs 40W and two Coralife T8 10,000K Daylight Aquarium Lamp 48 inch 32 Watt 10K Day light bulbs. In addition, held a small light for a 10 gallon tank (no clue what bulb) by hand above the camera about a foot away from the wigglers just so I could creep my f-stop up from 4.5 to 6.3.

That's the technical stuff :)

There were other images with better clarity; however, I chose this image for one reason: that little dude in the center with the crazy veins :)

Wasn't planning to update this thread daily but I was excited about the images today. Getting more comfortable with the new lens and playing around with lighting so I could increase the f-stop and shutter. Here's what I got...

Starting to see some blue on them :)

Beautiful fish as always Razzo.

Negative Karma for rule enforcement is a badge of honor :)
