[dxiong5] My Shrimp - Update: 1/9/2013


My sister was nice enough to loan me her Canon Rebel T1i this week, which gave me a chance to take some pictures of my shrimp (hooray for older sistahs!). I'm a total noob at photography, so please bare with the pictures. I'm getting sleepy and haven't had time to look through all the pictures, but here are a few for now. Thanks for looking!

-------

Wine Red. My lone Taiwan Bee, may you quickly spread your seed.


CRS, "be our guest!"


Super Tiger Juvie. This guy (or gal) is from a group I purchased back in September 2008. The stripes have become very thick on some, almost similar to low-grade Black Tigers. I've got some videos of the parents on youtube also, will post another day.


Blue Tiger, DK Bloodline

Nice shrimp and cool pictures - thanks for sharing! Looks a bit that flickr added too much JPG compression, what makes them look blur. Will check your blog for updates!

They've been breeding for 2+ years now. Numbers aren't that high, but there are usually 6 or so new ones every berried batch. These high temps are brutal though

She just bought a telephoto lens, so the macro may have to wait...though I may just chip in so that I could use it and [possibly] capture some awesome shots like yours.

disvegas,
Thanks! My Super Tigers came from Arnold from Oregon I believe (Pacificshrimps on Aquabid), but I haven't seen much from him lately. Of course, when my numbers get higher, I am definitely open to sharing them.

Thanks Ricardo! I'm shooting with the bare bones setup out of the box. Out of 50 shots, maybe 1 or 2 are decent!

New pics:

Rili. This tank still has discoloration from the Aquasoil, hence the murky water.
