thank you. unique is probably one of the best compliments one can get when it comes to scaping, so that really means something to me.

thanks.
Canon EOS Rebel (DS126191) with a Canon macro lens EF 100mm.
but shooting shrimp is easy, they tend to stay still. try shooting betta fry, takes me about 10 shots to get 1 good one when im taking pics of them. if you want to see some of those pics check out my spawn log here: http://www.ultimatebettas.com/index.php?showtopic=64936

i have entered this tank into aquabotanics nano aquascape contest (http://www.aquabotanic.com/?page_id=1917).
i replanted the ug a long while back, and then left it alone to let it grow in really nice and thick, and cleaned the a. petite as best as a could. then right before taking the photos i carefully manicured the ug so that all of it was at an even (and short) length, cleaned the surface, removed the hardware, and snapped these two awesome photos:



and here are 2 shrimp shots and 1 of one of my e. parkeri cuz i already had the camera out:

That's one of the greenest tanks I've ever seen. Great job.

+1, I love the green! The UG looks great as well. I like the corner oriented setup, it's probably too late but I think this scape would look even better if it was sloped more, higher where the anubias are ofc.

Wow, that's excellent- especially considering how long it's been up! Well done, and best of luck!

i absolutely agree. when i redid the tank 2 years back (replaced HC with UG, e. tenellus with a. petite) i also removed the substrate so i could put MTS under it. when i put it back it had a pretty good slope to it, but the substrate always levels out over time.

thanks. actually, the fact that its been up so long makes it much easier, i know exactly what needs to be done for it to thrive, and doing that has become routine.
