This is a picture of my male seahorse. His pictures really come out much better than his girlfriend's pictures.

This shot is not the most special to look at for anyone but me - the reasons why I enjoy it so much are that I wasn't underwater when I took it - I was on a small boat with absolutely glassy water at 10:30 in the morning (!) when 5 or 6 dolphins came to play with our boat wake. Naturally we stopped to take pictures and enjoy the moment - but my lens was a 75-300mm telephoto and this was all the dolphin that fit in the frame. (And a little bit of floating whatever in the top left corner - that's the surface!)

The luckiest I've ever been; the ocean is rarely calm at that time of day.

I forgot about this one for zoom in.... A lionfish up close. Public aquarium reef, so the lighting was good, and the fish was a good poser, it seemed to almost like stopping in front of the camera.

I've already entered a few of my favorites in past contest, so here's one of my newest fish... Gary... a gramma lareto (sp?).

And here it is.......



I certainly have some better marine fish photos, but I couldn't resist entering this fish that, for sure, is my No.1 favorite aquatic creature........
The LORD of the ALGAES !!! Twisted Evil

I seem not to be able to quit advertising this fish whenever I talk about planted aquariums (and I always do Wink ). Some will say that Crossocheilus siamensis is not a beautiful fish, but I strongly disagree.
I can't stop watching them, the way they graze over the plants in constant search for fresh algae shots...see for your self Very Happy
I do wish that SAE (Siamese Algae Eater) don't grow more than 8 cm (instead of 14cm) so one could use them in smaller tanks, but what can we do, it is good to have one per 70 liters.
O man this fish is pure poetry Smile

Kind regards, Dusko.

This is my first time entering a contest on this site, and my first time posting a photo. This is the largest of my two angels in my planted 29G. This fish constantly cracks me up. I've got several Apotongen plants in my tank that will often send flowers up to the surface. This fish will grab the flowers and pull them all the way down to the floor of the tank trying to eat them. It also is the most excited fish I've ever seen at feeding time, even more so than my roommate's oscar.

I decided to change my mind lol.... instead of the bleeding heart/SAE I'm putting a pic of my betta, Gemini. He's my little cutie, I love how he's all white and then his gills are jet black... when he flares, you sure notice it, hehe.

This pic was taken with a crappy HP camera, surprisingly. I was amazed with the photo, and have LOVED it since. Enjoy!
