I dunno . I've always liked her but it never occurred to me that she was a hino grade. This recent event has made her even more special to me!

I really like that fan.. . It's worked perfectly for 80-85 days. It keeps the tank around 73-74 plus it's served me well the past 2yrs.

I do have those clip-on fans utilizing PC fans bought from China but I haven't had a chance to set it up. They're buff fans thought, capable of dropping my tank down to 70-72 on 90-93 degree days. Evaporation is crazy but it works wonders if you have rodi to topoff.



HIGHLY recommended for those living in California that needs extra cooling but don't want to drop high dollars for a chiller or pay the expensive electricity bill.

is that tank really small is that downoi really big. I don't know you might have a large form. Maybe it's a different species.

Are you using Miracle gro on in your tank?

It's bigger than the crypt. What's your secret? It looks as if they are 6 inches across. The downoi I have are like 2 inches.

I like the ones seven ports has a link to on their cooling page. They work the best on shrimp tanks. I have tested every type out there and they are the best besides a chiller

I have some of my 20 that have stayed bright pink and others that died back at first that did not.

I think light is a major factor with C. Flamingo. Too much and they'll turn brown on you. I need to figure out how to shade it.

Whoo!!! Hot from the post. Ebita foods and Benibachi breeding liquid courtesy of Ian from Ebilab.


Also managed to snap a few shots of my Taiwan Bee inbetween breaks from cleaning up the house.







Lucky for me both berried mommas decided to venture out today instead of hiding under the DW. Got a great opportunity to take some good close ups of them.

Niskihi PRL (3wks - 1mo old)


Xin/Feather PRL (adult)


Cheers,

Thanks! He/She looks upset with those grumby eyes. Probably didn't want the photo taken. The TB mommas on the other hand were happily out and about.

Thanks Eric. Had the Niskihi since I came back from HK a few months ago. Went through hell to get them from HK back to US, but I'm glad they made it. They bred and mommas are preggers but I haven't had the chance to take pictures because they're kept inside a breeder box and the box is covered with GSA. I wanted the babies to grow out more so I moved 5 into the 60P to grow out. Got too lazy to net the others, but definitely noticing faster growth from the ones roaming the bigger tank.

Ya this tank is becoming a dump for my extra buces floating around. Hahah! I love how fissidens attach so I like to scape with it for my tanks. It's also a fluffier moss so babies tend to hide within the fronds, which is fine by me.

I was debating between the D7100, D7200 (would be released later this year), or the D610 and go FX but decided on something else. I was in the same boat but I figured if just dive into it and get a body and the lens for macro photography.

Anyways here's 3 pictures of my pandas. Still learning the ins and outs on my camera so these 3 are the best of the whole lot.

what lighting are you using? I've found that to be the hardest part of taking photos!

Did another photoshoot but it's harder this time around without a flash clip. I really like this picture of my Blue Bolt.



Sorry if it's kinda dark. Couldn't get lighting right.
