03.18.11 - Discus & Friends

Haven't done a real photoshoot in a while, so I had to put the camera to work! And I should have cleaned the glass better before shooting!! Just a few pics of my wild discus from John/Snookn and the other tank inhabitants.

For those wondering, pics were taken with a Nikon D90, Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8, and a SB-900 speedlight. Enjoy!

~ Jose

Those discus are gorgeous. Wild types are still my favorites. Great photos.

155 gallon (low tech) planted (not at the moment, after removing the Eco-Complete) Discus aquarium with 3D AquaTerra background, started in July 2010. EcoComplete substrate is now gone, replaced with sand, Rena XP3 and XP4 for filtration, Catalina 35" T5HO retrofit - 2x39 watt (two units) mounted in overhead canopy. Link to my journal for the 155.
