Some pics (still "working" with the camera)

My wife received this gift from her parents last year (or the year before), a Nikon D60.
I figured i would put it to good use and have been using these sites,
to try and "learn" photography (i use the term "learn" loosely because thus far have had mixed results).
There are a million different settings and combination of settings so its been a work in progress. Feedback always welcome as well as actual "ideal settings" for the Nikon D60, if anyone has experience with this camera in regards to taking pics of tanks and inhabitatants.
funny sidenote: im glad its not film!! i have deleted countless washed out, blurry, too blue and overall undescribable blobs. aaahhh, technology!
Here are some of my fish.
I have had the female clown almost since the beginning (5/2004), through all the mistakes!!
The male probably about a year later. They breed and I am working on getting some fry.
The yellow tang (11/2008), the sailfin tang (early 2009).
regular three striped damsel,
thought it was a nice setting though with the monitpora above and leather polyps below
A pic of some montipora, i have tons of regular orange monti caps
but this species grows different, different color plate and polyps.
my two most recent additions for my birthday, favia with some of that orange monti cap and palythoa. also a yellow sponge on the glass which was under a rock that i moved (most likely dying)
frogspawn from a fellow reefer (3/2011)
