After seeing the miserable results of trying to take pictures of Amica splendens, I could see that I really need a separate photo tank to take decent pictures of fish…. so I built one. I wanted it deep enough that I could put plants into the tank if I wanted to but small enough to keep the fish within my focus. I plan to make a partition to keep the fish in the front.
The lighting wasn’t enough to take pictures of fish if they are moving which usually is the case. I had to increase the light so I built a bracket to place some lights above the tank but out of the way of the picture. Here it is.
The bracket is holding an LED floodlight of around 850 lumens. I can adjust the angle of the light angle to the tank from about 80 degrees to directly overhead. (0 degrees).
