Tullio,

Somehow the color in this shot seems a teensy bit different and not as accurate compared to yourfirst fish submission. Either that or my aging screen is playing tricks on me.

I'm still surprised how well you are able to capture these finny friends.

Aloha

Well, I guess I should thank the LZ2 and its IS. I've taken many other fish pictures but they are not blue.

I've adjusted the colors a bit. How's that?

I don't think the problem is the camera. I think it is the lighting. It looks to me like the tank is illuminated by one of the pinkish fluorescent grow lights. Setting the white balance for fluorescent might help.

Thanks for your comments, Cal. I think you are right about the lights inside the tank. I'm not sure changing the WB would make much of a difference but it's worth a try.
