Looking forward to a colorful POTM this month ! Remember, the photo has to have been taken by you, and the subject has to be in your aquarium. A bit of info aruond the subject you chose is always appreciated. Sharing info about what camera and lens were used as well as parameters used is always welcome.

This is a photo contest after all and we're looking for the best photograph. Yes, you can use a post-editing product to better your pictures. In fact, we encourage it.
its difficult to give tips for this POTM as the subject is diverse, yet make sure to look around in your tank and chose your subject carefully, try to get creative in the picture you take, playing with blurring movements of other subjects in the picture or minimizing DOF or maybe trying to shoot an abstract shot...

As always refer to the multiple photography articles or post any questions you might have on the photography forum for better support. Maybe also post a few pictures for suggestions and critique to improve your shots wile preparing for this months contest as well.
