Make sure your camera is correctly focused
Make sure there is low/minimal lighting in the room
Too much will cause reflection on the front glass
If photographing your aquarium ‘face-on’, it is important to turn the flash off to avoid any reflection on the front glass. [If you wish to take a photo using a flash to ‘freeze movement’, and therefore result in a sharper picture, stand at approximately 45 degrees to the front glass to avoid a flash reflection]:
Don’t take the photo too far away and compose the photo to maximise the interior of your aquarium. That way it will really focus on the contents rather than it being distracted by the surroundings
