I can hear you all complaining that "I don't have them ones to take photos of".
Do you read anywhere above where it says you actually have to own the fish itself? It does have to be your own photo but not necessarily your own fish.

I took my camera to my lfs on a quiet day with no other customers in the store and the shop attendant and I had a fantastic time taking photos of all the fish in the store. He even opened the lids of some tanks and chased the fish around a bit so they would pose for my camera. :thumbup:

This is a common I used to own a few years back. I could never think of a good name for him so he was called Pending
