Ahhhhh, NO FAIR!

I don't have anything really outstanding to submit that is red...

I guess I will just have to watch everyone else.

I think Red is a tough one. There is a lot of Red fish and Corals but I still think it's hard. Everyone thinks the blues and purples are the greatest

The photos many of put up are gorgious! Does one have to have digital SLR with a special lense to get these shots? Could one use a Nikkon coolpix on manual settings? If so what settings? OR could I use a Canon Rebel SLR and if so what lense and settings? Do you use a tripod? Do you edit in photoshop?
Also how do you get you tank glass and water so clear that it seems it is not there at all?
These photos make great art:)
So many questions..hope there are some answers for those wanting to start taking photos.
