All loaches have some form of barbles (feelers). These are clown loaches one of my fav fish ever. Very Happy Definitly the best looking type of loach by far!

the pics look great. I recently got a canon a540, which is basically exactly the same, except I think it has better video capability. the problem is, all of the pictures I take are bad.

what settings are you using when you take these pictures?

do you use the flash or zoom?

Ya your camera has more mega pixals so you should be able to pull off better quality pics. Turn off your flash, turn all your lights off,more zoom equals less quality in my opinion with these cameras so zoom out. Get to a comfortable distance so the camera focus is natural. My problem is I don't take enough pictures I get lazy, you need to take dozens of them and a small percentage is actually decent. I take like 5 and use the least crappy ones hahah (not good). You will notice theres a lot less blurr when the fish is motionless, so keep them distracted. Use the auto setting, you won't be able to beat it! Make sure your glass is spotless and try and focus on 1-2 fish if not your gonna have some major blur. If you have patience you can actually put your lens right close to the glass and wait for a good close up but these require patience cause 85% of them is gonna come out crappy! Also I learned a trick with my cam (I think its the same for all Digitals Smile ) If you hold in the trigger, it gives you a "cross hair" on where the camera is gonna focus for the picture! It will save you some of your sanity, I'm learning and I hope I get better so I can post pics like some of the guys on here! Happy shooting.

Can you say "DUCKWEED" ??? Floating plants are my favorite!! I love seeing tetras swim threw their roots! Makes a tank look way more natural.
