I am thinking of getting a Nikon D-90 with the kit lens for fish photography.

What other equipment should I get example lens filter, macro lens (do I need it).

I try to use those point and shoot Digital camera but all the picture turn out blur as I can't use manual focus and light setting on the camera.

I have a very old tripod at home. Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thank you.

Wat species of fish?

Can consider the Nikkor 60mm micro or Nikkor 105 micro (if the fishes are smaller)

You'd probably need to practise with wireless flash techniques first as having flashes on the top and sides would be a better idea to illuminate the fish rather from a direct on flash on the camera itself.

Some top view ranchu, side view ranchu and oranda goldfish. I think I might get this Nikkor 105 micro len.

Thank you, I guess I have to read about wireless flash techniques.
