Photo Gallery Spotlight: The Longnose Hawkfish

by | May 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 admin@reefs.com . For submissions that are published in Advanced Aquarist, the author will receive a $25.00 gift certificate from one of our participating advertisers.Long_Nose_Hawk_Pair.jpg

This pair of longnose hawkfish ( Oxycirrhitus typus ) rarely separate for any length of time. They often perch together on various rocks and corals in my 500 gallon reef aquarium. I was lucky to capture them inside one of the swirls of my yellow Turbinaria coral ( Turbinaria reniformis ).

The picture was taken with a digital SLR (Fuji S1 Pro). An auxiliary flash was used at an aperture of F7.0, a shutter speed of 1/125 second, and an ISO of 320. The lens used was an autofocus 60mm micro-Nikkor.
