It was taken with a conversion lens 58mm 0.5x Wide Angle. Screws straight onto the 18-55 standard lens.

This is really fantastic! I love it! So much to look at and explore with the eyes.

The little spots of red and white from the shrimp are exciting to find...its like where's waldo. I really like the one on top of mount everest, he has an adventurous soul.

Then all you do if rotate the tank when setting up and hide it with decor, equipment, or flora.

Love the lushness, not to busy but definitely not boring to look at scape.

Thanks, I'm really pleased with the scape. I might enter it in the nano section of a comp.

See how I go. Might be time to remove the glassware and get hair dryer out.

I started with a lot of rock, about 15kg (or 33 pounds). This gave me lots of choice, and the luxury of being able to smash up a few and hope the fragments look cool. The amount I actually used was about half.

good luck with your scape twone21.

Well I'm in Australia so the price of ohko is going to be different.

I paid $4 per kg, a sale price from $6

So that's $2 for 1.1lbs
