I was a bit too excited to get this shot, but I came close. The leopard was on top, the corydoras adolfoi was on the 2nd floor, and the clown was on the bottom, all at the same time. In my excitement to get the camera focused in the complete dark tank, I spooked the cory, as well as didn't turn on the red-eye suppressor. This would've been an awesome shot, otherwise. It was a tough one, though, with the room and tank lights being off. I fouced on something the lens could make out in the dark that I guessed was approximately the same distance as the fish in the tank. I locked focus, pointed the camera at the tank, and kept my fingers crossed. Not perfect, but it's not bad considering everything was dark until the flash went off. After that, there was no visible fish in the tank! :-)
