Tanking pictures?

Seeing some of the pictures on the site, I am curious, how do yall get the pictures to come out so clear? I've tried, and have a nice digital camera, but mine never seem to turn out as good. Got any tips, tricks, advice? I would like to get some good pictures for everyone to see, and get an idea of the different fish in the tank.

Thanks in advance,

Section8

No problem, it can be confusing because of the forum's title. If you have additional questions after reading through the techno stuff, feel free to post it.

Some basics:

1. Turn the room lights off.
2. Leave the tank lights on.
3. Don't use a flash.
4. Use a macro setting. (You may have to do the last two under manual settings on the camera.)
5. Take lots of a pictures. I took 100+ pictures one time and 1/5 were decent. Out of that 20%, I would say 2/5 of those were basically duplicates.
