these are marvelous.

Aquariums are some of the best places for a calm environment of enjoyment and they're terrific for photos. Both fish are beautiful.

These are great shots! Make me nostalgic for my salt-water aquarium - I had both of these fish in it and loved watching them.

I don't understand why salt water fish are so much more colorful than fresh water fish.

Great aquarium shots, which I know can be very difficult with light and glass and reflections and all sorts of obstacles.

Absolutely beautiful! Wonderful shots! Reef fish are like living flowers of the ocean. Their colors and motion are so gorgeous. What a treat to see them!

The colors are pretty amazing! I'm reading a book by Richard Dawkins called "The Magic of Reality - How We Know What's Really True," which contains example after example of the wonders of our natural world! Reef colors would surely be another such example!

Hey I missed these. They are beautiful. I don't think there is anywhere more beautiful and strange as a coral reef.

Wonderful captures.

Bright, these tropical fish. Makes me yearn for a swim in Mother Nature's fish bowl in the Philippines.
