They are from Knuggs who is a member here. I also just got some news ones today from dmattbfan5 which should turn out to be really nice as well.

I still don't have a macro lens

Need to sell off about 500 more shrimps. Tamron is on the more affordable side too.

if you haven't looked into it, I really REALLy like my Tokina f2.8 100mm macro lens. It is pretty affordable, at between $400-600, and does a great job. I really like the focus clutch, which makes it extremely fast to switch between manual and auto focusing.

Tokina is good stuff. My favorite lens at the moment is my Tokina 12-24mm

Glad I took pictures cause I think all my tigers are dead...at the very least, MIA for more than a week. I did see the lone OEBT dead in the tank last week. What the hell is it with tigers? Most awesome shrimp, can't seem to keep them for sht.

Saw one tiger, but pretty sure the others are gone. It wasn't even a nice tiger either

On a good note, saw that one of my PFR's is berried. About time too.

Long time no update...well, no news is bad news. No more tigers. PFR's are still kicking around. No breeding from them but they are still alive. Lost all the tigers again. Not sure what's up. I may or may not try one more time. I need to find someone successfully keeping them in water very close to mine. It really irritates me that I can't keep these things.

My bad, I thought you were asking a question, hahah

Nice picture btw


Sorry to hear you're having such bad luck with tigers, it's gotta be something to do with parameters I guess. I only ever had luck with super tigers, never had much luck with regular ones or oebt
