Hey, here are some pictures which I took after getting my camera working again. I have tried out jib's settings and you will see how they work out.

The tech I am using is a Nikon D5100 DSLR, with a 20mm lens. These pics are with no flash, AP 2000, shutter speed 1/320. I found out these settings work best with my background and camera.

These are the best ones:

1. This is my favourite picture out of the lot. I love how his mouth opens but the other fishes tail is sort of photobombing it.

2. The picture of the king is really frikkin cool, love the clarity on this one.

3. Just a wholesome Larry pic, what more would anyone want?

4. Another nice pic with all the fins flashin'

5&6. These are pictures of the fry, I need a bigger zoom lensDSC_0217.JPGDSC_0219.JPG

These pictures are the settings which jib recommended, Low AP , flash on to creates an awesome contrast but it didn't work.

That's all folks, open to opinions.

Lol now if only I could take pics this good on my phone. Ugh gotta love/hate being stuck with a phone camera.
You can actually take really good photos on your phone as well, in fact, I used my phone more than my camera in the beginning. Obviously, it depends on your phone, and you can't configure settings as well and the focus isn't too great on fast moving fish but it ain't bad.

I agree.
I exclusively used cell phone cameras for years before getting my camera. I think my pictures turned out pretty well. Well enough that I got my camera badge from a picture I took with a cell phone😊 So don’t let that stop you from taking pictures!

Lol my phone kind of sucks for pics. It takes so long to focus and take the pic that I often have to take a dozen or so pics just to get a few good ones.
