Here are some photos of my ammonia filled tank with the stem plants in.
I learned pretty quickly that putting a bushy plant directly in front of the intake is, the thing was totally clogged with debris. I'm still skimming a bunch of random floaties from the aquasoil off the surface.
also, here's a quick teaser from my "real" camera. these were handheld at f/1.4 so there's a little bit of shake from the long exposure... just wanted to get an idea of what I can pull off with the moonlights on. I'll put it on a tripod the next time I take shots like this so I can get some better depth of focus.
