  1. This is a picture of west african dwarf cichlid called Pelvicachromis pulcher aka "Krib".

    This picture was featured on the cover of FAMA (Fresh And Marine Aquarium).


  2. WOW, that is a wonderful shot!! You will notice one thing about the PhotoDawg.........I like to comment on pictures!! :D :D :D :D

    I like the little fish........those must be the babies?!?!! :) :) :) :)
  3. Yes I noticed that. But that is a good habit :wink:

    Yes they are. I counted about 100.
  4. Very well done image. Gregory (GHO) would be interested to see this. He is our resident tank photographer and now we have you as well. Good job.
  5. Very nicely done may I ask what your setup is for shooting aquarium shots
  6. Aquarium shots - full tank shots or fish shots ?

    This was one of my 10G tanks (I have a fishroom :lol: ) with normal shop light used for focus and SB-800 with Omni Bounce from above positioned toward the back.

    Great shot Jay. I hope that this is not one of the species that eat their young.... :? Could get real ugly. :(


  8. They do not eat young, at least this pair didn't. Unfortunately female was extremely aggressive toward male and I had to separate them. Go figure :lol:
  9. Great shot and congrats on the cover. Which lens did you use ??
