EWTC The biggest ones are about a centimetre long. They are definitely a little bigger than bladder snails when full grown.

EWTC diwu13: nice post!

I had bladder snails previously, but my assasin snails cleaned them out. I went to a local fish store and asked for some more...these are what they gave me. They seem a little less vulnerable to the assasins...

diwu13 You're actually one of the few people here that have pond snails, and not bladder snails!

I agree! I have a 500 and the 620. But I have been using Olympus equipment for more than 20 years, so I also have a bunch of OM film bodies.

For aquarium photography I just use the on-camera flash. For terrestrial photography I generally use the Olympus ring flash. I need to get the twin flash as well one of these days.

What do you think of the Sigma 105mm? I wish there was a Zuiko of around that focal length...
