My Anglefish are breeding. At the other corner of the aquarium another couple do the same. Hope to be able to followthe show againat a later time. These will become fresh seafood for the aquarium dwellers, since we go to SA in a weeks time.

K20D, FA 35 mm 2.0 @4.5 1/15 sec ISO 1600. Hand held with lens pressed to front glass. I tried flash, but it just bounced in the rear glass and became an awful light blob.

Edit: Changed the picture for a sharper one.

Pretty, indeed. And, look at all those babies. Too bad you're leaving.

Beautiful Angelfish, very well captured, well done.

Neat picture! Too bad all these eggs will become part of the food chain, though. I never had much luck with the aquarium I had for a short time. The fish always seemed to get sick, or beat up on each other or something. I finally gave up.

Nice one Kjell! Shake reduction @ work :)

With the flash off-camera with a pc-sync cord, at the side of the aquarium you could probably avoid the reflection.

I'll try that when I get my DS serviced. Have got two TTL flashes and all the cords and shoes needed, but the K20D is P-TTL only.:evil:A reason to never, never sell the DS. If Pentax doesn't decide to reintroduce the TTL... (hint, hint, Ned)

Fry has hatched! Now they'll be hanging in a thin slime thread for a few days and consume their yolk (is that the correct term in English, Penolta?) before they start to swim. Their parents will protect them, but still they are pretty chanceless in this environment.

Close up 100% crop A*85 mm with 20 mm extension tube (couldn't get close enough without it, in order to get support from the front glass of the aquarium). Metadata missing, but IIRC f~4, 1/40 sec. Distance between front lens and subject 35 cm/13,8 inches. Hand held withsome support.

And not so close. Mommypampering her offspring, daddy trying to scare off the huge black, boxshaped, one eyed fish.

FA35 mm2.0 @ 6.3,1/13 sec ISO 1600

Thanks for looking

How neat! So the parents do protect their young - for some reason I had the idea that they laid their eggs and then forgot about them, leaving them to survive as well as they can. I'm always learning new things.
