Might as well submit one, might pick up some tips on Photographing.

So this is my Matted Filefish, Pele. He is constantly following me around within the tank begging for food. I love this fish's character and the way that he swims.

This was a very hard choice, but I chose to go with my goby and shrimp pair.

The reason being, they are just so much fun. It’s like a little bulldozer and a foreman giving him directions. I’m not even mad they stole my mermaids fan, or my red flame algae’s. It’s even entertaining watching them snatch a hermit crab to use as a door lol. my goby needs a tiny hard hat.

Camera used is my iPhone XR. No special settings, point and shoot.

This is my Clown Trigger showing off. This trigger is always clowning around and even has a smiley face on the on white spot pattern towards its tail. Shot with a Rebel T5i 50mm (85mm equivalent) F2.8 1/100/sec ISO800.

Special because only a handful have ever been in captivity in the US, and I no longer have this fish :( (age - photo is from 3 years ago)​
What made you choose the composition you picked?
Shooting fish with a diffused flash is a great way to get a high f-stop, high(ish) shutter speed without the subject getting overly dark. But there's no good trick to getting a good focus on the fish; that just takes practice! But always strive to focus on the eye.​
