Macro+ oebt = awesome!


Got one the $5 macro lens kits for my iPod, very impressed. Need to find a way to keep iPod steady when taking pic. They look a lot better right before I hit the button. Have had these for about a week

Nice deep blue


A lighter blue trying to ride a darker


Real little baby.


Will add some more tomorrow. Really loving the oebts.

Amazon. There are a bunch of them. They just stick on with a magnet. It came with the macro, a wide angle and a fish eye. I think it was like $5 with $5 shipping. It came from Hong Kong so it took like 3 weeks to come but totally worth the wait. It's no $3k setup macro pics, but it is way cool to be able to see the shrimp better than your eyes can.

Do you think this would work on a regular point and shoot camera?

I don't think so as the lens are tiny. But they would work on any phone or iPad I would think. Took some more.
This is a nice blue taken this morning, lights off with a large flashlight, on a ial.


Little lighter blue


This little blonde loves the camera.


I think this is a malawa can anyone confirm this? I have 3 of them in there, had 4. But one berried up and died 2 days later, this was like a month ago.


A nice supreme red. This lens was the only way I was able to see one was actually saddled.


And finally my dwarf puffer Whitey Magee.

Thanks overgrowth, the hc seems to be loving the lower light for some reason, having to trim a section oncea week.

That is just one of the options. Just search iPhone macro lens in amazon.

2 weeks now and not a single loss so far Han. Fingers crossed lol. They are growing at a pretty good clip and are constantly out and foraging. Really awesome shrimp. On a bad note I'm down to 5 supreme reds from 12. Not sure what's going on thought cherrys were supposed to be bullit proof??
