He's Alive!

I hadn't seen this Raphael Catfish since I added him to the tank! He's a night owl and I'm not so much sooo....Anyway I finally caught a glimpse of the elusive little bugger and my parrotfish seemed surprised to see him too!!

Nice to hear that he finally showed himself and the pic of the parrot checking him out is priceless.

My camera is a cybershot DSC-P92. I've been practicing taking pictures of fish alot and here's what I have come up with.....

turn off all lights in room except fish tank lights

use flash

use macro setting - flower icon

and then take as many pics as your camera can hold....mine holds apx 60 pics

take the 60 pics and throw out the 59 that are crap

take the one pic that is okay and crop out the crappy parts

then start all over! :P

Mine went missing for a long time when I had them. Several months later I found a bone in the gravel that looked suspiciously like one of the spines on their fins. lol

I havn't seen one since I had them a long time ago. None of my LFS seem to carry them anymore.
