A little world

As a little test for myself I thought I would photograph my beta. He doesn’t display often but I found he doesn’t like it when I wear black. Also he has a very  dark head so it’s hard to get enough light on him without it reflecting into the glass. I think I got it pretty good here with the help of my mother holding a flashlight over his head. All this took place while the snail cleaned the glass peacefully below.

    Just gorgeous! My son had 2 Betas – a black one and a red one, but neither one an Elephant-eared. Love his coloring and feathery fins.

    That’s well done. I find it always difficult to make photos of fish in a tank.
