I opened your thread to look at the updates and was like...wait those are my pictures. What are they doing there? That doesn't make sense...

I absolutely love the pictures you post. They are absolutely phenomenal!

Have you considered posting a introductory guide for aquatic photography? I know a lot of it is trial and error but it'd be cool to see what techniques you use and little tips and hints.

One thing I've noticed is that I like to turn the light off in the room I'm photographing in to reduce the camera reflection. Use a low aperature for individual fish pics and a large one for FTS (I hope I didn't mix those up).

Things like that from someone who has incredible pictures would be very helpful.

Hey everybody!

All my fish and plants in this tank, and all my fish in my 60P Riparium died after I spent 9 days without power or heat in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy

I was planning on moving the tank to my bedroom, so maybe this will be a kickstarter to do so, and restock it better than before...

sorry to hear about the losses Elmo. You'll be able to start fresh though and take it anywhere you want to!

No worries! The rebuild has already commenced for the 40B! I had been meaning to break down the tank and move it to my bedroom along with a few other changes, and this just created the push over the edge

Putting everything together now, look for a new tank journal soon-ish. I just have to get some new plants and I'm horrible with buying plants because I don't know whats out there, whats low light, what the scientific names are, etc., but I'll figure it out like always
