Hi,

Very nice place you have here, I just ran into the site today off the stats on a site I run and decided to join. I have been in the hobby for a little over 3 years. I currently have a 46gal bow reef. I'm looking foward in looking through the forums and learning something new!

Make a plan before recording of what you will be recording move camera slow and steady Smile I had to get my fish use to the camera at first they would take off and seek cover if I got too close with it but after a while I guess they got the idea it wasn't going to harm them lol and they let me record them.

Clean glass, clear water, a tripod. Move the camera back and use the zoom a bit. This will stop distortion and allow the target and the background to be in focus.

That's what I picked up from trial and error mostly. Could aways use more help too! lol
