Speedie's Shrimp Pix Collection pt. II **NEW SHRIMP PHOTOS - 7/10/14**
 
What's crackin TPT!?!? Most of you know I'm an avid shrimp photographer. I've been taking pictures of shrimp for almost 2 years now, and it's only been getting better every day. That's because nicer shrimp are easier to come by nowadays compared to even a year ago. I'm not going to lie, my skills as a photographer has also improved slightly.

It all started off as a favor for my wife, since she was the one into shrimp back then. I literally thought shrimp were boring and paid little attention to them, granted not as many folks were into shrimp yet (at least in the States). I decided to start a picture thread back in Feb 2011 of all the shrimp we were keeping. That got me HOOKED! This is the thread which I've now retired since it's way too long/old now: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...d.php?t=128700

Time for a FRESH start. This thread marks Part II of my Shrimp Photography Adventure. It's now become a full time passion of mine and I can say, I love shrimp now lol. Thanks for following along and hope you all continue to enjoy my photos to come.

Best regards,

Nick

PS. Starting this thread off properly calls for some new photos of a new shrimp just added to my collection and a oldie but goodie shrimp. ;)

Taiwan "Feather" shrimp - brand new shrimp making it to US soil for the first time. I don't have the details yet but these little guys are still just pee wees, yet the solidness/thickness they possess in their shell coloration is phenomenal!

The solid red looks amazing and resemble wine red.

Sure does! It's more of a translucent red, yes.

I won't be talking about any sales in this thread so please PM me if it's regarding sales. Shooting you a PM. :thumbsup:

Here's another Feather PRL. These are confirmed a separate line from the XIN PRL. Two different lines. The Feathers are much higher grade. I just wish I had an adult female to photograph rather then young pewees.
