Oh yeah, man....that skip breathing crap is for the birds! I do a longish (30 sec) skipbreathe every now and then when trying to photograph a really skittish critter (like shrimp gobies) but it's high on my list of things NOT to do! The CO2 headaches just build too much character! Most of the time i find that i can frame the subject, hold for 5 to 10 seconds max, and click the shutter.
For the photogs, if ya wanna get nice fish portraits /w/o the skip breathing crap, spend the money and get a 105 mm macro lens. You can shoot from long distance.
