Default aquatic macro

like to share a shot of the eyeball of a weedy scorpion fish - an aquarium image.



I'm after tips and suggestions on how to keep improving my images.

Is there any advantage possible by using a longer macro lens, like a 180mm, over say a 90mm? or is it just working distance?

is the MPE65 the ultimate macro lens?
