As anyone who as ever tried to photograph Tropheus knows, they can be very uncooperative when it comes to getting their picture taken. For this reason I use a 8 mm video camera to capture them in action.

In addition, this gives you a great way to show off your fish to your friends by capturing digital video of them.
