Probably the best shot I got there, it was busy and I had 2 kids and my 4 year old son with me (and hubby, so make that 4 kids) so it was tough. I actually did use the on camera flash for this and am really fortunate the glass didn't bounce it back or show up in the photograph.
I think this is the Red Lionfish, but please correct me if I am wrong.

Well done & YES that's a Lionfish. They have invaded the Caribbean & we hunt them when diving.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Aquarium photography isn't easy even with captive subjects. You did well!
