    Great pictures, how did you eliminate the glare of the tanks?
    Which aquarium?

    It was the Monterey Bay Aquarium in Monterey, California, which is a fantastic aquarium. It's a very close second to the one in NOLA for my favorite aquarium ever.

    My favorite part of the Monterey Bay Aquarium is the web cams. You can watch penguins from home!
    So now they are just dirt-covered English people in fur pelts with credit cards.

    Careful angling, no flash, and luck. The jellyfish tanks were easy, they're in a fairly dark room so there's not much glare. Also I took about sixty pictures, and these are the best of those.

    Nicely done. Is #3 a cuttlefish, and the last one a seahorse of some kind?

    Yep. I think that's the common cuttlefish (Sepia officinalis), and the other thing is a leafy sea dragon, which is a close relative of the seahorse. MBA has a whole section dedicated to seahorses, sea dragons, and pipefish, and it is awesome.
