Fish photographing I have a HP 3.5 (i think) and it takes great pictures of family pets etc ... but, how do I take clear pictures of fish? Yeah, things in water it doesn't capture so well, everything comes out very blurry. I use a lot of light, don't zoom, use the action settings and all that jazz, but still it doesn't come out nice. Please help me

I have had good luck with fish pictures by pressing the front of the lens barrel up against the glass. This blocks out reflections that the glass will cause and it also holds the camera very steady. If it is a small curved glass bowl, make sure that the glass lens does not actually touch the glass. You could scratch the lens. If the fish are in a small container, you will have to use the "macro" feature on your camera so that you can "close focus". If you have to take a photo with the camera lens away from the glass, the camera just may try to focus on the glass instead of the fish behind it. If this occurs, just point the camera at something nearby that is the same distance as the fish; press the shutter button half way down. Then swing the camera back to the fish and press the shutter button the rest of the way down. Never try to take a flash picture of anything behind glass as you will end up with a great shot of your reflected flash. However if you have the camera lens pressed against the glass, you can use flash if necessary.

What fishing advice should I never take?

There's obvious pieces of advice that you shouldn't take; fishing in restricted areas, using ******* baits or gear, targeting ******* species or keeping under/oversized fish.But there's one piece of advice that I wish no one would ever take - to target & kill trophy fish. Typically, trophy fish are the females of the species. They are the egg bearing gender and have the genetic code to make other fish capable of their size.

Not all female fish of any species can obtain their size. But trophy fish can make those babies. So, keeping a trophy fish should never be advice to be taken. If you target or accidentally catch a trophy fish, practice CPR (Catch, Photograph, & Release). Protect the brood stock and keep the smaller adults of the species.

Fish

Hey Manni, Fish can be tricky critters to diagnose at the best of times- and online is harder by far because you cant really watch the fish.
Can you tell me a few details so I have a better idea of the situation? What kind of fish is it, how long has it been sitting at the bottom of the tank and are there other fish in the tank with it?
The first things I would check are the Ph. levels, the algae level, temperature and if you have a filter/aerator that it isn't clogged and is letting sufficient oxygen into the water. If all these things are ok, we need to take a closer look at the fish itself.

Bith of gold fish

Goldfish are egg layers. Unless you have Comets, (commonly referred to as "feeder fish", or "carnival goldfish"), or Koi, they are both in the Carp family and are live-bearing. Meaning once the female gives birth, you must seperate the "fry" a.k.a. baby fish from all other fish in the tank or they'll become a snack. Pet stores sell breeder boxes to float in your tank that the babies stay in until they're big enough that they won't get eaten, there's also special food for babies once they're born or hatched from eggs.
