Macro Shots *More on page 2*


Microrasbora Kubotai 2nd day of having them









CRS



RCS





And a random shot of HM




Criticism welcome! Also I need help on correcting color. How do you do this without just guessing? I don't think I have the right colors on all those pictures...

Thanks everyone. I'm using a Canon EOS 5D, a Tamron 90mm lens (which is actually mine), and a Speelight 420EX flash. Everything else is my dad's. He's a "professional" photographer. It's more of a hobby in which he makes some extra cash :-D.

Thanks Dkle. And I forgot to add, does anyone have more info on this fish? I've looked and looked but only find taxonomy information, and stuff like that. How about breeding these guys? I'm guessing it'll be pretty hard to do so but I'd like to try.

OK I just found one dead on the floor. Now I know they're jumpers... Not a thing I was hoping for because I have no idea how I'd cover the tank. Well I guess all fish are jumpers. But this is the second day. So something must be wrong with my water or they just like to do it.

no tripod. The settings were 1/200 shutter speed, 100 ISO, and 1/32 fstop. With a flash of course.

they probally breed the same as a lot of other microrasbos. search forbreeding info on microrasboras spp., not bororas, that may help.

Great pics! The Microrasbora Kubotai is georgeous. Where did you get them?
If there's a taps plastic near you you can have a lid cut from twin polycarbonate.

That second picture is adorable. Looks like he's shedding a little tear with his pouty mouth.

GREAT images!
