Have you ever tried taking photos of a Senegal bichir? Mine is by far the most active fish in the tank, almost never sits still haha. It's easier with my cichlidsThanks guys.
I want to start with a HUGE THANK YOU to fishguy1978 for raising the pleco. This fish was in my possession for less than 24 hours when I got the shot. I had just picked it up, got it into the tank and then took a few pics a couple hours later, so again thank you fishguy1978 for the awesome fish. Credit, where credit is due!
As to the picture... I believe pleco and bichirs should be eliminated for consideration for POTM due to their sedentary nature and the fact they just sit there. Way too easy for a good pic, lol. With this one I was able to hold the phone right against the glass, zoom in and it turned out to be one of the best close up shots Ive ever managed to get. No special camera or lenses, just my old Motorola G5 Plus phone and a very still subject and zero camera movement. Lighting is from the Beamswork EA LED fixture, no flash used.
The funny thing is that I am not a pleco guy by any means and was going to submit... you guessed it, bichir or cichlid pics, lol. But this guy just sat very still and gave me a great shot so that was that.
Thanks again to everyone who voted, thanks to fishguy1978 for the awesome fish and now I need to try and top this pic....
Been years since Ive kept a sen. My current bichirs are both very sedentary lower jaws, lolHave you ever tried taking photos of a Senegal bichir? Mine is by far the most active fish in the tank, almost never sits still haha. It's easier with my cichlids
