Macro+ oebt = awesome!
Got one the $5 macro lens kits for my iPod, very impressed. Need to find a way to keep iPod steady when taking pic. They look a lot better right before I hit the button. Have had these for about a week

Nice deep blue

A lighter blue trying to ride a darker

Real little baby.

Will add some more tomorrow. Really loving the oebts.

Amazon. There are a bunch of them. They just stick on with a magnet. It came with the macro, a wide angle and a fish eye. I think it was like $5 with $5 shipping. It came from Hong Kong so it took like 3 weeks to come but totally worth the wait. It's no $3k setup macro pics, but it is way cool to be able to see the shrimp better than your eyes can.

Do you think this would work on a regular point and shoot camera?

Forumsnow 01-20-2013 03:43 PM

I don't think so as the lens are tiny. But they would work on any phone or iPad I would think. Took some more.
This is a nice blue taken this morning, lights off with a large flashlight, on a ial.

Little lighter blue

This little blonde loves the camera.

I think this is a malawa can anyone confirm this? I have 3 of them in there, had 4. But one berried up and died 2 days later, this was like a month ago.

A nice supreme red. This lens was the only way I was able to see one was actually saddled.

And finally my dwarf puffer Whitey Magee.

Which model is it? Fisheye?
I just want one of the lens. :p
Or could you give me a link?

Nice shrimp and HC carpet! My two favorite things. :)

Thanks overgrowth, the hc seems to be loving the lower light for some reason, having to trim a section oncea week.
That is just one of the options. Just search iPhone macro lens in amazon.

How the OEBT doing man?

Forumsnow 01-21-2013 05:30 PM

2 weeks now and not a single loss so far Han. Fingers crossed lol. They are growing at a pretty good clip and are constantly out and foraging. Really awesome shrimp. On a bad note I'm down to 5 supreme reds from 12. Not sure what's going on thought cherrys were supposed to be bullit proof??
