Still trying to find the best hosting site for my pictures. Here's a comparison between flickr and fotki. What do you think? The original image looks quite nice in Preview on my MacBook - better coloration overall. :/

I like the flickr, even though there is barely any difference. Cause to me the baby CBS looks clearer in the first image.

Thanks for the feedback. I could see the difference in speedie's pictures, between flickr and fotki, but mine look very similar. I'll stick with flickr for now, since that was what I used first and already have photos uploaded on there.

Beautiful! Even though that black tiger is of lower grade, I like it more because of the interesting pattern. I wonder if it would be possible to breed low grade black tigers with red and eventually get red blotchy tigers.

Tank: 20 gallons, 62 watts t5, DIY CO2

Unemployed, poor, and still living off the parents.

Personally I like how fotki host much better. Flickr turns all my pix yellow but IQ is spot on.

In your case, seems like the flickr pic is more accurate as far as color.

Do you blanch it or do anything to it other than cleaning it up and dropping it in the tank?

Yup, I drop it in boiling water for 3-5 minutes, then feed it to the little buggers.

Here's a quick shot of some new shrimp I got from aquarLiam/The Shrimp Lab, taken with my phone - haven't had the chance ($$$) to get a DSLR yet : (

I eventually want an all-Wine Red tank, but for now, will probably breed them with my CRS, bad practice, but will create numbers. Also, all my Wine Reds and BKKs look like males, (though they are young and sometimes it's hard to tell...I'm leaning towards 75% that they are males). Among my CRS/CBS in this tank are some Taiwan Bee hybrids as well - fingers crossed that they will rendezvous.
