Few of my works

So guys really sorry been very busy with work and personal life so been away for quite sometime. But had quite a few things happened during this time, which includes final photoshoot of the pico tank that I had.."The Cuuube Ver: 2.0" and also rescaped my fiancée's tank (this time she wanted a simple one, so did a simple one for her this time)

But sharing a few pics..

1) The setup of my photoshoot's - a lot of you guys asked me how I do it..so here it is..as simple as that..no rocket science at all...
2) The betta all grown in one month! look at the finnage I love him!!
3) The final shot of the tank.

I love the background lighting. Creative work. Looks great. How are you achieving the blue look in the most recent picture?

@furnfins - As I said before it's not about talent..everyone has it..! tall you need are a few practise sessions on a dummy shoe case and trust me..you will end up making something better than what I have..i'm sure..

@texascichlid - very simple trick actually. Ask for the big fishbags from the LFS..guess they'll give it for free..stick it simply via cellotape/cleartape without cutting them to make em' a single fold..as the double fold helps to get a better refraction! and voilà you are ready with the setup now all you next need is a bare white wall or place a thermocol/styrofoam at th back and let a bright white light source be present at the base of the tank at the back..with the immense amount of reflection/refraction of light..the blue spectrum will get highlited and this is what you will end up getting..hope it helps..

Man that is great work I really love all the tanks but I really loved pic 2 in the starting of your post. Could you give me a list of the plants that you used in it. What kind of stone do you use. Can not wait to see what else you come up with. Hope you win in the contest.
