Nice a Canon REBEL XSi, not a Nikon but a good choice :wink:

Watch your iso it's getting a little high, you can use a tripod for coral shots (water flow off) and for fish use a smaller f number if available. If not maybe looking into a fast prime lens like a 35 or 50mm or whatever Canon makes :mrgreen:

Thanks for the info. Would like to get a few more lenses for the camera. Just don't have the money right now for it. Also want to learn how to use the camera better before I do so.

I've been shooting the Rebel T1i. In order to get what I liked out of it I had to increase the default saturation and contrast levels in the camera. Out of the box, the camera seemed well adjusted for portraits...but too flat and not suitable for scenics or coral/fish shots. I bet the Rebel XS(i) is similar.

Sure...you can always fix the images later, but the camera was clearly shooting images with less contrast and saturation than I prefer so was easier to just change the camera.

Those Aussie Gold Torches are showing up all over the place now! They are awesome! I have one too. :D

You have some very nice corals! :)

Great pics and nice corals. That orange torch and frogspawn are pretty funky, I didn't even know they came in those colors.

Cool tang too, is that a bristletooth?

Christy I am pretty sure it is a Maculiceps Tang.

I am obiously going to have to get rid of it when it gets bigger. My 5 foot 105 will never be big enough for it.

Never really have seen Orange frog for sale or on web sites either. That was one of the reasons I picked it up.

Right, hmm, someone told me it was called a bristletooth, yet when I google, Tomini comes up. Anyway, its a neat looking fish. I had no idea they got so large, I had one on my list of fish for the 180, guess I'll be crossing that one off :razz:

Your 180 might be a good place for it to go after it is to big for me? Then when it is to big for you it can go to a bigger tank.

LOL and then when it gets too big for me, I can send it up to MrFish55 and his 750 gallon tank in Powell River :razz:
