Aquarium photography is very tricky- the more you know about photography the better your pictures will be. Try reading the articles in the sticky thread at the top of the forum and practicing some of the techniques. A little practice and some reading will do wonders for your picture quality.

Didn't know where to test and this seems as good a place as any.

Don't be concerned for my ltittle goby, he is fine now.

Those are pretty darn good, especially considering the limitations of that camera.

The most common causes of blurry pictures are slow shutter speeds and shooting at an angle into the tank. Using a tripod and shooting squarely into the tank will improve things in most cases. If you can put that camera in something like a sports mode (pets? kids?) it will bias the settings towards faster shutter speeds.

hmm.. I guess I have to read up on the instruction to speed up my shutter. I'm not even show I speed up the shutter. I heard tripod helps a lot, but I think it's a little too much just to get some pictures of tank.

You can always put a chair and some books or whatever in front of the tank and prop the camera on that. Use the self-timer on the camera so it doesn't jiggle when you press the button. Your camera doesn't have shutter speed priority but it does have a "fast shutter" scene mode- give that a try.

tripods make a huge difference as does shutting down your pumps. check out Marc's (melev) home page for lots of good photog tips.
