Better lights and New pics!!!


I was a bit frustrated with the greenish look of my lights, so I decided to mix my T5 a bit
(a experiment that Niko from APC did helped a lot http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...nts-light.html )
I added 2 giesemann lagoon blue and 2 aquablue to the tank (I had 6 67K running before) Can't really explain how beautifully the lights blend and the shrimp colors just pop out! Photos are 100% better!

In the first photo that red shrimp to the left looks awesome. What kind is it? Doesn't look golden...

And look what I found today!!! I posted on ravensgate tibee thread a pic of a baby colorless with the same pattern this morning (picture it last night), and tonight I found 4 little guys like this one. Bricey (is that your name? soothing shrimp, right?), what do you think of this one?

Nice! I myself also like 10k white with blue light mixed in it. It really bring out the color.
