>Greetings and salutations to all in the list, the best in the world. I had
>a question for you all. About three weeks ago I took a picture of my tank
>so I could admire its beauty even when I'm not home. When I took the
>picture, the tank looked fairly bright (125g/360W), the water was crystal
>clear and the plants looked real nice. When I got my film developed
>however, the tank in the picture looked dark, it made it look like my water
>was the color of a dirty pond (puky green) and I could hardly see the
>plants. What happened? This is not my tank. Actually I think the camera
>took a picture of the front glass of the tank and for some reason didn't go
>much further. Should I hit my camera with a baseball bat for being
>worthless. Should I hit myself with a baseball bat for the same reasons.
>Anyway, what I really want to know is not what happened but how to take a
>picture correctly. I figured that it would probably be best to do it at
>night with all the lights out exept the tanks (cover the flash maybe) but
>I'm not sure if that will do it.
>Thanks in advance
