Moreso, despite any effort to tweak a photo so it looks the same
to you on your monitor as it does when you look at the tank
in real life, unless your monitor is calibrated and
eevrybody else monitor is calibrated, no two images
will look the same. Some will be darker, some will be
lighter. Colors will be different, sometimes subtly
sometimes not.
