SMOKIN pics bro! I really like that first BKK shot. It's just habit I guess but what DSLR are you shooting with? What lense?

It almost looks like little bits of fissidens. Now I'm interested as well.

nothing fancy, just a T1i, with the stock lens and no flash - just the tank light and whatever ambient light is around. I set the aperture/ISO based on the current conditions and how the first couple of shots turn out after viewing them on the camera. With manual focus, I zoom close and hold the shutter until the little red points beep, then take the shot. Most of the time it's only focused on one part (I try to aim for the head), that's why in my photos usually only one part is in focus while the rest is blurry . Honestly, I don't have a full understanding of photography yet; something lets more light in, something is the distance from the object to the lens, etc..? Complete noob, gotta read up and hopefully catch up to ya!

Thanks everyone! I'm trying, but nothing surpasses Mr. Speedie's pics!

I'm not sure who the Pops is. The eggs are red, but I've noticed that CRS eggs are dark to begin with, so at this point, I can't say if it was a BKK or a CRS (she was berried before I added the Wine Reds). Let's hope it was a BKK!

Zach is right, they are tiny sprigs of Fissidens

The T1i is a nice little camera man. Mate that sob with a 100mm f/2.8 macro and you'll notice quite a bit of difference. Glass is a big deal brotha ! That kit lense can only do so much. It's not even designed for macro so you're doing great from your results. Lots of reading will greatly assist you to become a fantastic photographer. Also read the operating manual and play around with the camera as you're reading through the different functions. That'll help you get the layout of the camera and it's many options available. Most of all, HAVE FUN!
