Not my usual macro quality but I tried to take some underwater photos today. Crazy fish wouldn't stand still.

Endlers are hell to get in focus shots of, mine all see me anywhere near their tank and they go into feeding frenzy begging. The one way I have managed to get ok photos of the endlers has been at night after lights out. After a suitable amount of time to allow the fish to think they wont be distrubed until the next day, go back turn the tank light back on and photograph any endlers that happen to be snoozing near the front of the tank. This works well for me because my fish are not inside the house so they dont have the usual house lights shining into their tank, or lots of movement as you do things around your house that the fish can see.

Won't turning lights on startle them? I'm thinking leave lights off and use a low light torch and external flash for fill light to take the shot. Will try that next.

The light doenst seem to startle them, but then the shed light usually comes on first while I make my way over to the tank light switches. My current camera I hate with a passion, since the flash on it seems to only illuminate to one side of the view and not the entire frame. That and the camera not having a macro setting I dont tend to use the cameras flash when photographing my fish or shrimp.

Ok, I tried with the lights off tonight and manual focus. Not quite there but getting close.

Looking good, because they are still young you should find their colour will improve and intensify as they mature.

I am surprised that the female has colour on her tail, I was under the impression that endler females had no colour much like wild type female guppies.

Nogi don't feed them for 2/3 days and then hold a piece of algae wafer or something in your fingers (right next to the lens) and then snap away :)

      Guys can I help dispel some myths about differences  in the guppy female and the Endler's female . I see a lot of people claiming that their female Endler' s have a coloured tail and dorsal fin, This is not true, The true Endler female has no colour in these regions. A so called Endler female with colour has had some sort of hybridation  occurred in it's linage, A lot of people buy Endlers from some breeders when the fish are young, after a month or so the female starts showing colour on its tail and dorsal fins,  naturally the person  thinks the fish is a real Endler because the guy who sold it to them said so. when in fact it's classification is a Hybrid "K" Class.
      However there are some subtle differences between the two, I must admit it is difficult when the fish are young (Please refer to the pictures below) 
      Guys I am not down on hybrids, however i feel sorry for people who think they have one thing but have another, There are many Endler Types out there and few true Endlers
      do your checks before you buy

      My parents have an aquarium, so I don't know if this will help, but still want to leave a suggestion. They also liked the idea of installing a light strip in it, so they started looking on amazon. I don't know what went wrong, but it broke on the fifth day of use. I think it was a cheap Chinese thing (although the website told me it was waterproof and durable). They asked me for help finding a better option, and I advised them of the smart LED multi-color light strips I used in my car. Being pretty skeptical, my dad still decided to try them. They have been working fine for a month now and don't even flicker. Mom says the fish are happy, lol. I hope my comment was helpful

      It's not looking good. Quarantine any shrimp showing Necrosis, as it can be infectious. Tell us what your water parameters are, and do a heavy water change after that. Increase surface agitation to get more oxygen into the water. A bit of H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) into the water to increase oxygen might also help the shrimps that have not yet contracted this.

      Sorry to see you have a problem. Try reading the section on 'muscular necrosis' in the below section. You will need to scroll down through it until you see the bold red heading of that description (it is quite a large article covering many problems etc, it is about the 5th item on the first page);   I don't have any personal experience of this but do ask any questions as someone may be able to help. A bit more general info may also  help, your setup, number of shrimps, how long you have had the shrimps, any water parameters you may have etc?

      Hello, I was wondering if anyone here had any first-hand information on these particular pictures. It describes exactly what a few of my shrimp have. The second picture is spot on and most accurate. Thanks

      #4 looks almost like a juvenile female to me, just looking at the abdomen in the top left image, but definitely looks more male in the other two images. The colour suggests it is an adult though, and it’s lacking a clear  so Simon is probably right in thinking it is male, that top left image is just confusing me a bit. If you’re going to get a female, to be sure, make sure it’s got an obvious yellow saddle. That’ll help you know it’s mature as well.
