This month's subject- Red And/Or Green

Looking forward to great shots of your reds and greens ! Remember, the photo has to have been taken by you, and the subject has to be in your aquarium.

A bit of info around your shot, Why it makes you happy or makes you think of Christmas decorations would always be a welcome addition.


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.
Few tips:
Get creative in your choice of topic, Red and Green can come from multiple items in your tank so make sure to start by using nice subjects.
always room to get more creative with abstract shots if you feel it goes better with the items you're shooting. or at least experiment with DOF and focusing.
Try to capture the subject from an interesting angle and don't be afraid to include fish or other dynamic elements in your 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.

This challenge would be so much easier if Xmas used Green and Orange as the colors of the season.
Or Green and diatom brown!

Maybe I should trigger a cyano bloom to get some red in the tank.........
