do they make a fish eye lense with macro? that might get some interesting shots.
Macro/Fisheye, Not a bad idea, if it does exist it must cost a fortune.

I found that if you pan with the fish you get a very clear shot.

Update on Canopy build

Updated pics on the progress of the 120 Canopy Build. It's about 95% completed, the wood shrank a little letting some light through. Hope you like it. I don't think it looks like a coffin anymore.

Looks great!! I am thinking about making a stand and canopy for my 90.

BTW: Good choice on cameras too. I have a Nikon D300, D60 and N90s 35mm, plus a ton of lenses. Great cameras.

I just noticed the box of salt next to the tank. I have 1 of those boxes too. My LFS had it on sale for $35.

I got mine @ Dr Foster & Smith, I wound up with 2 boxes for 44 bucks. The first box was broken open upon delivery with 1 bag punctured so i called to let them know and see if they could just replace the 1 bag they turned around and sent me another box. I like them, they are no nonsense and take care of their customers. Boy did that make me happy, especially after all of the money invested in this tank to date.
35 bucks is a great price, up here the LFS's charge an arm and a leg.
