I just saw those EOS 10D cameras on sale.. I was tempted. Then I realized who am I kidding.. I can't afford that. Nice photos though. Can you use any canon lens on that bad boy? I imagine they have a special line of digital lenses. Keep the photos coming though.

Canon Digital EOS SLR line is compatiable wiht all of the 35mm film lenses. So ALL of the EOS lenses and most accessories work wiht the digital SLR's

That pic makes me want to go back to the lfs and get that red tiger bulb they had. I want to wait until my tank gets settled until I get plants like that though...something to look forward to though.

I ordered one "Tiger lily" bulb (Nymphaea lotus) from Aquariumplant and they generously shipped me about 8 bulbs.

They are seriously taking over part of my 100 gal:


Here a comparison to how they looked like a few weeks ago:


After starting to fertilize with KNO3 and K2SO4 the leaves got much bigger and show a color that reminds of something metallic, like copper. Hard to give credit in a photo:

Those tiger lotus really are beautiful plants. The red really look well next to driftwood. It's amazing how fast they grow too. I planted one about a month ago and in that time it has probably grew 5 new leaves. Every couple of new leaves it will send up a runner to the top which I really like to see but eventually have to snip it because the leaf gets so big it blocks light. I never expected the plants to do so well.

I bought a small to medium sized red tiger lotus off aquabid for my 75 gallon a month or so ago. I've already taken 3 baby plants about the size it was originally to the lfs for credit and made back what I spent to get it and get it shipped. And there is a 4th baby plant starting to grow as we speak. It grows like mad!!! :twisted:

Very nice pics rossi. I think I'm getting camera envy.
