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!
Thanks Nick, any advice, especially from experienced folks like you, is greatly appreciated!
I may just have to pick up the 100mm f/2.8 macro so I can improve my pictures.

Berried BKK!
She looks a bit stressed; hopefully she carries to term and the shrimplets survive.

I'm certain he is either a BKK or Wine Red. I took out my CRS and even TB Hybrids from this tank, and only left two female CRS because they were berried at the time (~2 weeks ago).

Donny you only run the big sponge filter on the three tanks on the left? Your shrimp tanks looks awesome. Pure shrimp tanks. I've tried many times to start a pure shrimp tank with only one wood and some moss....but I end up throwing a bunch of other stuff in there and cluttering up my tanks....lol

Donny,

What's the purpose of those clay balls on your substrate? Bacteria collection points I assume? Do they really work?

Shrimps tank wall-pretty awesome. Do you have enough time to enjoy it because of water changes and maintenance?
