Thanks all.

Have a few more I like. The collisions don't always make great images, and sometimes the reflection is cut off because of the close framing. Something I need to work on as I'd like to do these in portrait orientation to get the full reflection of the taller ones in frame.

I was thinking longer tank this one is only 10inx8in Smile

Two dust spots when my camera is stopped down to f/22 I can live with Smile Bearing in mind they don't show up at f/4. Edited on the laptop which has so many spots of the screen I usually end up spending hours editing dust spots that are not on the image Grin So this time I did not bother.

Not picky Jon correct. It is too close to the top, hence the need for a slightly longr tank to aid composition.

I have made contact with a company to see if I can get one made to specific dimensions as it does not need to be as deep as a standard fish tank from a shop would be. Hopefully the cost will not be prohibitive as I feel this is the next improvement required.

I always said I would get to this point eventually. Still not 100% but not far off now. All I need now is an agent to sell some and recoup all my time/effort Grin
