turtlehead-- Canon EOS 10D (a hand-me-down from my uncle), and a 18-200mm lens. Personally, I want to take good photos, but I don't think the next best aquascaper in the world will be whoever takes the best photos-- it'll be the one who aquascapes the best! Ya-ha

(I still don't know when the next time I got to Japan is but, I want to study abroad at next spring semester. I hope I can go. What's a micro lens? If it's macro we're talking about, I think it's okay to not buy one . . . they're expensive, yah? I use "Close-Up" filters but, I think my camera's macro is better than so-so. Sometimes I take macro shots even without filters. Mmm, but, my macro shots are still not that good. A real macro lens is a really convenient thing, ya . . . In regards to your own aquarium, please work real hard!
I probably made a lot of mistakes in my Japanese (and that translation is also rough), but I just really like practicing! And sorry for the rough language-- we're studying keigo in class now and it's driving me crazy!!
Snapple-- you can get more details in my journal thread, but yeah they're lava rocks.
