photo?s for ID reasons

I have a couple of fish that I would like to take pictures of from all angles. Most of these fish are too shy to shoot even during feeding. My idea is that I would put one in a small container of water from the same tank for the short time while I shoot. Most containers I have come across distort the view. I'm just not sure where I should be looking for the perfect container. Any ideas?

I think a breeder box (floating kind) or maybe one of those lee's specimen containers.

I definetly agree with a breeder box.

thanks all. I just ordered a specimen container. The breeder box I have has slots in the bottom making unable to be out of the tank and shot from all sides.

I have a plastic fish catcher that I use to transfer fish from QT to the DT.

Don't forget to make sure the container is clean and to wipe any water spots off the outside. They can be distracting.
