Marc Levenson Very cool how you got them all piled up like that. :)

Burhan MuntasserPhoto They are always together like this, I didn't have to do anything except wait for the "right" pose. They always swim together.

Hazel Lai How did you get them to all face the lens? I never have such luck with a school of fish. They always swim away .... :(

Steve Rosenberg Great perspective! I like your image a lot. Its normally difficult to get them grouped together for a frontal shot.
