    Unfortunately, one of my External Flashes gets out of order…So, I have to improvise…
    The result - that is one same fish, but looks different because the different type of lightning:
    On the first photo, the external flash is above the tank.
    On the second photo, the flash is straight/ In front of the tank.
    So, what do you think – which photo looks better?

    you are asking us to pick between two spectacular photographs...

    but if I had to choose, I would pick the first one. I think the lighting looks more natural. The colors aren't as iridescent, however I think they have more richer and have more texture in the first, especially the aqua-green of the tail and dorsal fin.

    Thank you everyone for the comment!
    ianho, you have to use external flash(better two!), then you may to choice more proper camera options(faster shooter speed and closer aperture)!

    So, here is a couple more shots with frontal flashing:

    Your collection of pictures is wonderous!! What jewels they all are! We just had a lecture for our monthly meeting at the local fish club here in S.L.C. The slides were amazing and you must be very proud of your critters. This is a really great thread. Question...are they really as jumpy as I have heard? Do you really have to celliphane you tank with Wrenalds wrap to keep them in??

    Two of my N. annectens photos that I took long time ago, with Zenit E camera.

    This one was uploaded at my killifish site so it was probably already seen.

    There are more killifish and other photos at my old site (that needs to be rebuilt).

    Hristo thank you for your kind words about my photos. The fact that it comes from you is even more flattering.

    I was out of hobby about ten years, but now I am back. I already got some Notho eggs, so I will try to make some new interesting photos of these beautiful fish.

    Now I use Canon 350d :) with 380EX flash. I usually use reversed lens of old Russian camera Smena 8

    and results are not bad at all:

    As soon as I make some new killie photos I will post.

    If you are in contact with Nako Nakov send him my regards. Long time ago we tried to establish Balkan killifish association with our Romanian friend Dan Rasiga. But it seems it was too early.
