Okay I am sorry.

The problem is my bad English, I live in a non English speaking language.

What I meant was. If you don't have or don't want to use flash use a fast
film. On a normal 10*15 cm print you won' notice any difference anyway.

But if you use flash, make sure that you don't take a picture of the
reflection, instead of the tank.
If you use flash, there is no need for the fast film, but you can off course
still use them.

With many Thanks
