    Default Fry PICS - Callochromis pleurospilus (Raspberry Ikola)

    Fry PICS - Callochromis pleurospilus (Raspberry Ikola)

    The callos are going nits again! Just stripped a female callo this afternoon and have another one that is holding from a spawn yesterday. I messed up my last big batch of callo fry by putting them in with some more mature fry - BIG MISTAKE! So, I will try to be more careful and put them in a flaoting nursery basket for the first week or so.

    My kilsa spawned again yesterday - try to get some pics of them up soon.

    Thanks guys

    I am a recent convert from the point & shoot world to a DSLR. I am just starting to learn how to use the DSLR and I am really loving it! So much more capabilities. This first pic is in automatic on the DSLR and it stinks! The lighting is all wrong, the fish blur because they move around too much, and you can't tell what the true color on the fish is:




    I started messing with the settings in manual mode with the goal of capturing motion (basically, chosing a faster shutter) and look how much the shots improved:

    I am still learning but I am having fun with my baby steps
