Thanks Crystal. This is one of the last Shadow mommas that I kept for breeding. She's a beauty and her blue is expressed much more while shes berried.

Get some black tigers from him, they some time slip royal blues in there on accident, hehe then you end up with a breeding stock that has royal blues all over it. I know this because it happened to me

Shutter 1/250, F20, overhead flash (I'm waiting for some cash flow so I can get a power source for my new lights!), & wireless trigger. Check out my new lights! Novatron 2140-C's:

I like the shadow panda that u took. I was wondering how do u get ur shot like that. Are u using a canon 100m macro? U should post a pic of how close ur camera and lens are up to the tank...to get an idea... Camera noob

I appreciate the effort you put into the photos. It can be a PIA to get the lights set up and take photos. These are poster worthy. Great job man.

^^ Basic Canon 100mm macro, yes.

The beauty of of a 100mm is that you don't have to be right up on the glass. I'm standing a good 1-1.5 ft away from the glass on most my shots.

Binbin - Thanks buddy!!

Come on man/speedie/.Why are you giving your secrets. Now everybody will start posting pictures in National Geographic.

I'm just buying light equipment for the company. Read some forum and decided to go with 3-4 flashes. Will skip PW supplies, cables, wireless, triggers...
Probably I won't have max power and speed but I'm not professional photographer.
Which wireless-trigger you have in mind?
