Ok, so this may be a stupid question, but what are your platies in that lets you take their picture that way? Is it a glass container? A breeder box? Something else entirely that I'm ignorant of...?

Hi Diana,

It's not a stupid question at all...

Well, it's a small plastic tictac box. I've got two sizes of them. And I've got a glass container which is bigger. Those fish are more relaxed that way which makes making pictures much more possible.

I've asked a good buddy of mine who works in a glass factory to make two sizes of glass containers for me. For now, with the plastic containers scratches in the containers are visible.

What a great idea, I never would have thought of that!

Whatta you mean, Alison? With the amount of fish I have overhere, you mean?
I've got 60 tanks overhere with all kinds of livebearers. Still able to handle this all by myself... Besides these tanks I've got also 3 paludaria. Reptiles and amphibians are a lot easier to take pictures of.

I work in a contracts office, so I'm sure I can pawn some off on coworkers to speed up the consumption rate, lol!
