They do an awesome job at keeping plants going don't they? I use my cherries to keep my Cory eggs from fungusing.

Thanks. I actually was thinking of doing a RAOK for those who could guess how much I spent on it. Sounds like a good idea?

Amazing macros from a cell phone. The Neon/Fire Yellow really stands out. A very smart shrimp.

Are you using the
AGPtek lens kit AGPtek lens kit

Lol. Nice going there ending my RAOK idea zdnet! !!!

JK. Whats scary is both your guesses are right. Now I am afraid you might be that hacker everyone is been talking about...

So to answer you questions. Yes its that kit and yes its off an S3. iPhone's can't be this GOOD!

I am amazed myself how a kit under $15 could be this great! But then again I need these beauties to cooperate in order to make it work

For me, its definitely moving forward. Why would you resort to a cheap lens for your iPhone when you have like a $1000 lens, if not more? Lol. Your shrimps and photos are amazing, this stuff won't do your shrimp justice at ALL. The day that I can get a camera of your range is the same day I need to upgrade my shrimps to go alone with the pixel

The lens is limited though. Only when the shrimp comes very close to the glass is when I can capture these images. Any comments or suggestions to shoot better?

How about a place to upload and share these photos? I remember you mentioned that where you do it matters? As a newbie I need a free upload center
