Re: hello from the lake district

Welcome to Pixalo Swin

Reflections are going to be the bugbear of shooting through glass. Good lighting is the key. Best to light from the top to avoid reflections in the glass. If you can get even diffused light it will reduce the directional shadows.

If you have good light in the tank you may not need any additional light or a flash - and bear in mind that the fish might not like flash anyway.
