I am using an Aquatica D7000 housing with the 9.25" dome.  I am looking to shoot some over/unders and looking for lens recommendations with this particular setup.  Thanks for any help you might offer.

Tokina 10-17? Nikon 10.5? I've done DX over/unders with both and they work well. 

 

Maybe the Nikkor 10-20 or 10-24 which I've not tried but have been reviewed in other posts on WP.

Hm, I wasn't thinking the Tokina 10-17 would be very good at over/unders.

You're welcome.

 

These were shot with an 8" dome. With a 230 I reckon you should do pretty well.
