Looking forward to great shots of cleanup crew ! Remember, the photo has to have been taken by you, and the subject has to be in your aquarium.
No watermarks or captions are allowed in the pictures and pictures with watermarks will be disqualified.
A bit of info around your shot, what makes you chose it, as well as how shot was taken would help.


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:
- experiment with different views: top down or front views.
-Play with DOF by minimizing or maximizing aperture for different looks.
-experiment with different moods possibly capturing those critters in full action...


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.
