They are getting taller. i'm hoping to moove this bunch to the new 55. just got gravel for it yesterday and new lamp fixtures, two 20w LED Floodlamps running 6500-7000K.

I was saving up for a 90-100mm but your 150mm really makes a leap forward with how closeup you get. my shrimp always run away and i can absolutely never photograph my SAE... LOL (working with a 35-55mm) at the moment on a Nikon D50

Cleaning your glass before shooting will help out a lot with getting clearer pictures.
