[Zbrafish] how to stop zebrafish heart beat

We are experiencing difficulties in two-photon fluorescence imaging of live zebrafish embryos and larvae: although the skeletal muscle is relaxed by tricaine the heart is still beating and thus causes blurry images. So we would appreciate very much if someone could recommend a good way to stop fish heart during imaging (it would be ideal, if it is reversible so the fish could be revived after imaging).

Thanks very much.
