 Took  some  trial  shoots  through  my  cousin's  Canon  S3IS.  Do  point  the  mistakes  /  suggestions  to  make  it  better,  the  next  time.

 err!  Unsure  Shankar,  could  you  tage  the  pics  with  their  sci-names  as  well  please?
 
 Sorry  but,  I  got  no  suggestions  but  all  eyes  on  the  thread  to  know  more  about  photographing.
 
 Thank  you.

 1.  Sicyopterus  griseus  -  Were  'busy'  at  a  far  end  of  the  tank.  The  best  pic  all  that  I  could  click.
 
 2.  UnIDed  Salmostoma  sp  -  A  tricky  fish  to  click.  Too  fast;  had  to  keep  following  it.  You  can  barely  see  the  Barilius-like  markings  on  the  body,  that  faded  off,  soon  it  saw  a  bulky  black  cam  following  it.
 
 3.  Esomus  sp  -  A  long  shot.
 
 4.  Trichopsis  pumilus  -  With  Macro  on,  but  without  the  manual  focus.
 
 5.  N.  leleupi
 
 6.  H.  nicaraguense
 
 7.  Hemichromis  sp
 
 8.  Archocentrus  sp  -  Too  much  of  light  falling  from  behind  the  pot.
 
 All  of  the  shots  were  on  AF,  which  I  think  was  a  major  mistake.  :  (

 hmmmm  
 For  fish  fotography  AF  is  your  best  friend,  take  my  word  on  this,  cause  manually  u  wouldn't  be  able  to  keep  up  with  the  fish's  constant  movement,  unless  the  lighting  on  the  subject  is  heavy  and  u  are  using  a  high  shutter  speed  and  small  aperture  to  click
 
 other  than  that  u  are  not  going  to  get  good  shots  within  a  few  clicks(like  many  of  the  pros  out  there),  for  us  its  like  a  few  tens  of  shots  before  one  very  niice  pic  or  sometimes  none.
 
 keep  clicking,  BTW  one  more  thing  u  can  do  is  start  using  the  A  (aperture  mode)  or  the  S  (shutter  speed  control  mode),  keep  using  one  of  the  modes  till  u  start  getting  great  results
 
 then  u  can  go  for  the  fully  manual  settings

 Thanks  Jib.  Well,  the  above  8  bad  chosen  pics  were  a  result  of  close  to  100  worse  ones.   Smile

 Try  &  increase  shutter  speed,  this  will  give  more  sharper  pictures.
 You  can  use  a  tripod  stand  to  minimise  vibrations.
 in  case  of  pot  picture,  force  the  camera  to  focus  on  fish  inside  the  pot,  go  to  complete  maunal  mode.

 Shankar,Its  tempting  to  zoom  in  with  12X  at  your  disposal  on  the  S3,  but  try  to  move  in  closer  to  the  fish,  than   zooming  in.  Zooming  would  result  in  more  shakes  and  smaller  aperture.  if  you  are  shooting  in  auto  mode,   a  slower  shutter  speed  will  be  substituted  for  the  smaller  aperture,  resulting  in  more  blurry  pics.  Still  nice  pics  and  nice  fish.  Smile

 Thanks  for  the  good  pointers  Sandeep  and  Alistair.  Tripod  IMO,  is  good  for  FTS  or  a  multi  shot  mode,  just  trying  to  get  lucky  for  the  fish  to  be  in  the  right  frame.  Most  shots  were  in  cement  tanks  and  had  no  other  option  than  to  zoom  in.  But,  a  good  point  that  about  the  blurr.
 
 Vijay,  I  got  no  clues  of  the  parental  care  in  the  wild,  but  in  captivity,  they  are  very  shy  parents.  Flee  their  nest  and  really  dont  mind  the  scattered  eggs  getting  blown  away  due  to  their  nasty  darts.  Hence  I  guess  it's  the  nature's  way  of  safe  guarding  the  non-adhesive  eggs  that  slip  and  scatter  among  the  substrate  rubble  and  the  possible  leaf  litter.

 Try  panning  the  camera  if  possible...  it  generally  gives  clear  shots....
 Also,  you  can  try  to  hold  focus  at  one  point  and  then  use  the  same  focus  to  shoot  the  actual  subject  (the  fish)  ...This  is  one  way  to  get  the  camera  to  focus  when  the  subject  is  in  motion.......  I  hope  i  put  that  clearly....

 Yes,  got  it.  Can  only  command  a  bit,  after  a  few  trial  and  errors  on  my  very  own  one.

 Got  to  use  flash  indoors  Smile  
 Ambient  light  isnt  enough  in  most  cases  to  freeze  motion  (flash  helps  by  "freezing"  it  too)
 
 Shooting  from  the  top  isnt  the  best  angle  Razz   The  refraction  is  a  huge  factor  then.
 
 But  really  liked  this  one  -

 Hayath,  I  guess  I  had  used  the  flash  for  Sicy  and  Esomus  shots.  But  were  about  7  feet  from  me,  'playing'  in  the  dark.
 
 Yes,  fish  photography  isn't  ideal  to  be  from  top.  My  point  was  to  get  crisp  images  on  moving  subjects.  Need  a  lot  more  trials.  :  (
 
 That  Nic  shot  doesn't  do  any  justice  to  its  beauty.  It's  far  more  beautiful  than  the  pics  you  get  to  see  on  the  net.
