Here are baby Sparkling Gouramis in the bubble nest taken with an iPhone

Closeup of one of my albino corydoras, taken with a Samsung Galaxy S7 and a little clip-on macro lens.

I love the world of the small, it's such a complex and beautiful part of nature happening all around us that we usually never see. So share your macro shots! Me feeding fry baby brine from a

Some of these photos are absolutely amazing. I decided to give it a shot tonight myself. I dont have anything of that quality and im not really sure these count as macro photos either; but here are a couple i took on my phone tonight. I am looking to get a macro lens attachment soon so i can get more detailed shots.173B1DDC-6A6D-4364-B24A-9C1240D686DB.jpeg.815b379af482783f0fb2b72211825b6a.jpegB6867489-255A-4370-8E17-FCE02A4EED00.jpeg.739125b5f6af183af031c6071b7d47c9.jpeg077F7508-D5A0-4BB2-A884-DEBB7EC808CB.jpeg.b121304d05400aeb2961866a4eec0ce5.jpegFBBA2606-523D-451E-9A3D-A918658674C3.jpeg.7dcc60e76aff53c175a9b6de24bc8e7b.jpeg

In the process of reviewing the photos i took of my new hatchetfish i noticed that they have Ich! I hadnt noticed any symptoms yet so if i hadnt taken these close ups i still wouldnt know. 
 

i immediately dosed ich x so they should be recovered soon enough.

Very nice work!! Fish are pretty tricky since they can move so suddenly...

They always say the best camera is the one you have. Don't be intimidated by quality, it's just fun to learn and as you shoot more, the photos will just get better! 😄 I have many folders of blurry fish shots that I took with a camera when I first started, rarely getting anything sharp or in focus...so I'm very impressed with what you captured first time around! Glad that you jumped on board and looking forward to more photos from you. 🙂

I second the moment lens!

I actually don't have the macro, but use the 58mm telephoto to get closer to subjects while keeping well within the minimum focus distance of the phone camera. Here's a few comparisons, with the phone staying the same distance away for the subject, the only change is the addition of the lens. It's not fish pictures because fish move too quickly and it wouldn't be consistent 😂 My phone is a Google Pixel 3.

Left: No lens // Right: 58mm moment telephoto

With the telephoto, there is also more lens compression and the background looks a little bit blurrier 😉

It is always wonderful to have another forum member say they like your aquarium or photo. I know I always appreciate that.

But, there are also the reaction buttons that can serve the same function, for example:

Clicking the reaction button helps @Hobbit build reputation and also keeps the thread slightly more compact. Otherwise there would have been six separate replies of likes to just this one photo in a thread that has hundreds and hundreds of photos.

Meaningful replies are a keystone to good threads. As stated in the guidelines:
