Okay, here's my crew in their new 29 gallon tank. Overcrowded by one fish, but SO much better off and currently enjoying their first experience with tubiflex worms. They love them.

Poe is left out of this photoshoot since didn't want to be photographed and he's in a different tank.

I finally got a new pose from Mars, he's expanding his modeling style, lol.

Who can go wrong with the classic head shot?

And of course his trade-mark 'dancing' pose.

Look at me! I love my new home! - Phoenix

Skittles trying to hide from the camera...

...and accomplishing it.

And last but certainly not least, the little fish with the HUGE personality - Sparky!

Not really into getting his picture taken

If I pose for one will you leave me alone?

Sparky is fuzzy, but for some reason I like this picture.

Sort of tank shot, with all four of them and Mars as always looking at the camera trying to make it all about him.

Thanks everyone. I have taken some photography courses but most of the credit goes to my camera.

Sparky is really hit and miss. Sometimes he just blends into the background and he looks like two floating eyes, :rofl . Skittles is only behind the plants when I'm taking pictures otherwise he's staring at me almost all the time, which just frustrates me. Mars and Phoenix track me down once they see the first camera flash, it's hilarious.

My camera is a 6.1 Megapixel Kodak Easyshare. I put it on the Macro/Close-up setting it has a use a flash; rarely does it fail me. Here are a couple more I took tonight because I'm bored.

Here's an example of Sparky's 'glowing eyes' the rest of him is usually blended into the background though.

Do I see lettuce-y pompoms on skittles?

I was feeling weird, so here are some top pics of my fish, which make me appreciate their beauty even more. I love Mars' tail in the shots of him.

Thanks and I'll pass that on to Sparky even though he doesn't need anymore of a complex than he already has, lol. He's the bully in the tank and the smallest which I find humorous because Mars could take him out if he wanted to.

Rant away! I know how things like that get. I have a memory card with my camera so luckily I don't have that problem anymore, it's stuck once the picture is taken.

It's okay about Poe. I hope he'll be okay. I want to be able to stick him in with the others because I hate seeing him alone. The extra work will be worth it if he can have friends.

I can't get over how tiny Mars looks in this tank. I had a larger one but I became so used to him in the 10 gallon that he looks like he shrunk.

i have a memory card too(all though i can only get like 5 pics unless i delete the 500 'glamor' shots), but i cut the photos so i dont have to delete them off the camera, and so i can upload them to photobucket right away and show you guys.

yeah, when i moved mine from the 30 to the 55, they looked so small too. and i think they got kinda lost so they just stayed in a corner for a while..

I was bored tonight, so here are some more pictures, I know, big surprise. It's a little frustrating when you're trying to upload pictures and the internet is slow.

2 of them are of my dwarf frog Pudge (I've had her for 2 years, she's singing tonight!)

Here is a Panorama of the bottom half of my tank

Sparky is learning well from Mars when it comes to posing. I think he's trying to break his way into the modeling biz, lol.

Mars is starting to 'branch' (I know, bad joke) out on his methods. He's trying to share the surroundings now to enhance his natural beauty.

Phoenix hiding from Sparky. He decided that he wanted to chase Phoenix and this was the only way she could get away from him.

Here are some cool pictures of Pudge. I can never get a good pic of her, but tonight she's so photogenic and singing up a storm so I couldn't leave her out.

This one is just cool. It's a close-up of Mars' scales. The detail is so amazing.
