Hello from Bellingham, WA

Hello,
I've been browsing around the site for a few days now, thought it was about time to register. My gf and I have a 20 gallon FW tank that has been running for about 6 months now. We both had tanks as children, but don't remember anything about them, so we're pretty much new to the hobby (and quite addicted). We've had a bit of a rough start due to the mistake of taking advice from petco employees, but have learned our lesson & now stick to the local fish store & online research (wish I'd known about this site a few months ago). Anyways, happy to be joining the community, and I hope you're prepared for my many many questions =)

Thank you! =)

first question... Is there some trick to photographing fish? Everyone is posting great pics of their fish... mine will never hold still & I can't get anything other than a very colorful blur. I have a few nice ones of my snail & african dwarf frog though =P

I have a sports setting on mine that is for moving targets. That is what I use to keep from blurring.

Mine is dark too if I get away from the tank. I get up close to the tank and take the pics. Check my gallery to see the results.
