I just got 2 of these guys yesterday nite and took the pic a cupla hours ago!
All I did was crop it and 1 pc of sharpen.
He's called a "Balloon Ram"...I knew he wasnt just a plain blue ram as he is much more oval! I think this is my best fish pic Ive done yet!

yeh, the glare is the tricky part...You have to get at an angle to make the reflection shoot off into another direction. You'd have noticed a lot more if you'd seen the pic prior to the crop.

Kevin Kline was absolutely insane in that movie, the best role he's ever had imo.

I have bred Rams before. They have an awesome mating ritual, protect their young like all cichlids and are very territtorial when young are present. They will lay their egss in a small hole in a branch or a rock or under a rock, care for them, move them to keep fungus off them and the like. The males, which is pictured will get even longer filaments w/ age and get even more beatiful. I just love the South american cichlids, particularly the dwarf species which rams are included. Their are a few sub-species, but most come from Brazil or Venezuela. Love the pic too!
