Default Fish Tank Photography...Testing out new waterproof camera (Pic Overload)

So I bought a Fuji XP100 (Waterproof, shockproof, dustproof, freezeproof) and I had nowhere to test it underwater, as the pool is too cold right now...So I tried it out on my fish tank, haha. I have a Beta and an African frog, so I tried to get some shots of them in a small tank that I have (Very difficult). I yielded some "interesting" results...Some came out okay, others not so much.

In no particular order:

You got some pretty good shots in there. The detail is very nice. How much do those cameras go for?

I only paid $50 for it. It was discounted on Amazon, then I had a $50 credit there...So I got it for cheap. They normally sell for about $175.

I'm sure it takes better pictures than this, I was working with a 1 gallon fish bowl, haha. I can't wait to see the possibilities in the pool...

Takes HD video, too...Amongst a lot of other features

Cool!
I've never had a waterproof camera.

Really cool! Your African frog seems to do really well. What do you feed it? I used to keep them, but then developed an allergy to blood worms, and I just couldn't keep them healthy on anything else.

They told me just to feed him tropical flakes and make sure they float to the bottom for him (Or her, I don't know). He's my first frog, got him weeks ago to go with my Beta, and was alarmed at first when I saw these pictures because of the film-like stuff all over him. Looked it up though and I'm pretty sure he's just shedding

Tropical fish flakes? It will do in moderation, but if you want to improve their diet and lengthen their life-span, get some frozen Blood Worms.

Mine used to shed all the time - the real cool thing was to watch them pull off the old skin like it was a sweater, then stuff it into their mouth and eat it!

Those little frogs are so cute! I loved mine - cursed be my allergy!
