Btw what's that thingamegig you told me about a whole ago. You mount a flash on it?
Get a GoPro. I love mine! I use it for fishing all the time .

You just need a cheap ebay off show flash trigger. No need for no fancy smancy TTL trigger .

Hahaha. Thanks! The dragons blood Taiwan Bee looks pretty cool. Wish I had Nick's skills and equipment so I can take better pictures.

For now, I'll have to make do with my iPhone camera and a macro lens attachment.

Hahah. Yes! Remember me telling you how tying moss gave me neck cramps... Well... That happens when you're tying moss on 7 sheets of SS mesh. I'm a big fissidens guy so the 60P is filled with different types of fissidens.





Kinda OCD, but I placed the geppi leaf by leaf in a uniform pattern then tied down with fishing line. ️. Into the perfect uniform growth!

Hella OCD, i use to do that, but it takes too much time. I just slap that sucker on SS mesh make sure there are no holes. I think I have over a 100 patches of Geppi now. I ain't gonna sell it cheaper though. I like it too much and it's too slow growing to sell cheap. Good hiding spots for baby shrimp.

+1. This moss grows sooooo slow! I can't imagine selling it for cheap. It's a lot of work to grow and propagate.

I don't always tie moss, but when I do, my neck and back hurts! I guarantee it!
