Wow. i am honestly surprised. Never thought i'd be jealous of a little shrimpy guy like that.

Love shadows though! they have such aesthetic quality.

Ah.. Sunlight!
200+ watts per gal and free dappling.
Pearling with no CO2, UV skimming.
Best lighting I never bought!

No wonder the shrimp is glowing.
That ivy looking stuff looks cool as well.

I love shooting my tanks when the sun is hitting them. Fish too look better in sunlight too. Nice shots.
