Aquarium photography

I've taken most of my tank shots with a point-and-shoot camera or with 8mm
video.  On my web page, many of the earlier-dated shots of my tank are
point and shoot.  

The key with a point and shoot camera is to not take any shots face-on with
the tank.  You can take your picture from an upward position angled
slightly down (above the top edge of the glass), or from any other position
where there is no way for the flash to bounce back at your camera.
Basically, you don't want to be directly in front of the glass.  If you can
see your own reflection in the glass, you're in the wrong place.

The shots I took of Wilfred Fong's reef tanks in my San Francisco trip
pictures are also taken with a point-and-shoot.
