This is Harold (no it’s not, fish don’t have names – but he looks like a Harold if I ever saw one) eyeballing the camera. Given that this photo was shot with really high ISO – 1600 (!), it turned out better than I thought. Shooting into fish-tanks with low light is not a really great idea.

Noise Reduction (duh), sharpening, selective blurring, Duplicate layer with Guassian Blur at 50% set to Soft-Light blend, another neat-image, manual blur, dodge and burn the highlights of the background, curves.
