    It has taken months to get photos of these little jerks. They either hide all of the time, or never stay put.

    First up, my Bintan licorice gourami, Parasphromenus bintan. He's a brilliant electric blue, but stays out of the light so the colors don't show up.

    Even with a camera and lens combo that costs $2,000 these still aren't the best images. So, I took the lid off the tank and clamped my carnivorous plant grow lights onto the rim. Much better results!

    This is how killifish photos usually turn out....

    And the licorice gourami, glaring at me.

    Nice. Good job on the photos and keep at it.
    You're better at it than I am, and far better at it than people who've not posted pictures.

    Your Gardneri killifish looks great! Where did you get them from? (if you don't mind me asking)

    Sorry for the late reply, I've been insanely busy. I got them from a pet shop in Virginia Beach called Animal Jungle. They don't have many of the killies or Parasphromenus left anymore.
