For a few weeks this spring I set up an aquarium on the banks of a local stream, with stream flow through the aquarium using two siphon hoses. I added several tiny trout, including a small fingerling that ventured into a crawfish trap nearby, and a sculpin.

These photographs were taken through the side glass of the aquarium, with an umbrella cloth behind the camera to reduce reflections. A flash was placed above the aquarium, pointing down at a slight angle away from the glass. Flash exposure was automatic.

I love the way I can see the individual scales glisten on this little fingerling fish.

What wonderful photos! I would have liked to have seen this aquarium you've described. It sounds fun. I was amazed by the detail of the first photo--the fish scales glisten so beautifully. Both photos filled my eyes to the brim.
