    This is one of the finest photographs I've ever seen of a fish, Saroj! What a sharp and stunning picture of this very beautiful fish. I think the fish likes you too....I think I saw it wink at you! :) Very beautiful colors and the water in the aquarium is a most magnificant blue. Very professionally shot photo, my friend!!!!
