Impact PowerSync16 DC Radio Slave System is good but still need some accessories to work.
If you calculate everything needed and the size of the equipment probably $1500 for 3 flashes aren't too much.
Maybe there is better and cheaper option but I didn’t find it.

Man where do you get all these amazing shrimp? And do you have a separate tank per color?

I think I'd rather stick with my cheap ebay triggers and use this to connect to my Novatron power pack: $15 only

I import them from over seas. Taiwan and Germany.

I've always known that's where you get breeding stock, but I do want to know if you need any special importing papers to do that on your scale.

Yes you need importing certs and docs and a decent amount of money to meet the min orders they set. The more you buy from them the better the pricing gets to a point. We are just fortunate that speedie and some others front the money to help us out. You make a profit off it but you are not going to make money hand over fist doing it

^^ Thanks for the explanation Steve.

Mark - I do it because I love the hobby and I love photography. Both go hand in hand. To add to what Steve said, shipping charges, import fees, licensing fees, Customs bond, etc... all these cost $$$. In order to make importing worth while, one MUST order large orders. Otherwise, you're better off buying your shrimp Stateside.

I'll never be an importer myself, but I'm interested to know what you deal with. That's really good to know though!! Thank you.

I know you love the hobby and photography. TPT benefits from it daily

Photoshop? If anybody is shooting a digital SLR and don't believe in the use of Photoshop, they should just stick to film . It's a revolutionary tool. You just have to learn how to use it properly.

I think the dragon black marbling helps the red to pop more. Gives a nice compare/contrast.
