Fish Picture Photography – Fabio Ghidini

by Fish Tank on February 27, 2007

Anyone visiting my little site here has probably noticed I enjoy the aesthetic value the inhabitants of the fish tank have to offer. I hope my fish picture gallery is enjoyed by you, as much as it is by me.

I recently discovered a site devoted to the art of fish picture photography - Fabio Ghidini Aqua. Pictures of fish, aquatic plants, invertebrates, and aquarium equipment take on a whole new meaning under the lens of this Italian photographer.

Here are pictures of two types of the tetra species taken by Fabio. I added both the Neon Tetra, and Black Neon Tetra to my 37 gallon Eclipse aquarium. You can see why. Their bright stripes and colors make them a popular choice among fish tank enthusiasts. These schooling freshwater fish are best kept in groups.

The black neon tetra enjoys swiming with 4-6 of the same species. They eat fish flakes, and freeze dried blood worms, but like the Neon Tetra, their color will be most vibrant when fed a diet including brine shrimp.


Iridescent blue and red colors make schools of Neon Tetras appear bigger than their 2" frames really are.


I've highlited a couple of fish Mr. Ghidini has shot, but do yourself a favor and check out the rest of his fish picture portfolio. I bet you'll discover some of the beauty that sits in your own fish tank when you aren't looking.

Gold Gourami Fish Tank Video

by Fish Tank on February 18, 2007

I recently picked up a Sony DCR-HC38 camcorder, and thought it would be fun to shoot some videos of my fish in the 37 gallon Eclipse 3 aquarium. This first video is of my Gold Gourami George.

Discover more about the Gold Gourami on it's profile page. Let me know what you think of my first attempt playing with the camcorder.
