by | Jan 15, 2003 | 0 comments

Welcome to the Photo Gallery Spotlight. Each month we’ll showcase a particularly nice aquarium photograph, taking the time to discuss the identification and husbandry of the animal pictured as well as information relating to the technical details of how the photo was taken. Readers are encouraged to send images (and details on the organisms pictured, as well as the details of how they captured the shot) they would like to submit for possible inclusion in this feature to [email protected] . For submissions that are published in Advanced Aquarist, the author will receive a $25.00 gift certificate from one of our participating advertisers.Clown_anemone.jpg

This is a recent photo of my female maroon clownfish (_Premnas Biaculeatus_) and my Stichodactyla Gigantea anemone. The photo was taken through a 3/8-inch tempered glass aquarium wall and approximately 8-inches of the water column. Some slight retouching was done in Photo Shop – I boosted magenta to bring out the color of the clownfish.
