Here is one of my first experiments, I didn't use the flash. I would like to know if it is possible in the same picture to take the aquarium and "freeze" the movement of the fishes as long exposures times are needed in these low light conditions (maybe not...)

Thank you very much for your help.

Camera: Kodak DX6490
ISO 80
F 2.8
Time: 1 second

Flavio, if you have an external flash you could mount it over the aquarium or at one side and take pics that way. you may have to experiment for proper exposure. If you are trying to get closeups of the fish then put the camera right up to the glass on the aquarium and try flash that way so you get no reflections back to the camera. Also, make the room as bright as daylight and try without flash.

For tank shots have a peek at the Aquatic Photographic site. It is a site dedicated to aquarium photography.

hi flavio. only way you will be able to freeze fish(especially the ones that move a lot) with your camera would be brighter lights so you can use higher shutter speeds.

here's an example of using lighting. its not the best quality but this was taken at a huge aquarium.
