    How do you guys get to take these pictures of your fish. Mine is a total blur. Probably because my phone is to slow and the fish to fast!?

    Don't do when eating and have good lighting for a quick shutter speed. Lastly, patience;)

    I just use my phone. Like Hendre said, good lighting is key, patience, and hundreds of other photos before you get the one!

    That paradise fish is far from slow. My busiest fish in that tank.

    Having good light gives sharper shots too

    Just sit patiently and take a lot of photos. Focus on the eyes of the fish
