First Closeup

This is my first attempt of taking a closeup photo with my camera through a magnifying glass. Please feel free to comment and suggest tips.

is the remedy for stupidity.

It's not the size of the tank, but how you use it.

Thanks! I'd love to be able to upgrade cameras soon so I can actually get different lenses, but for now this works. I have to say that I am starting to enjoy photographying my tanks as much as I enjoy the tanks themselves.

Great photoshot. I can never get such an image with my camera and just a magnifying glass. Things just become so blur all the time.

nice job, the contrast of the green against the background really makes it pop

So are you the same Alan from CCAC?

Fantastic shot! I'm going to have to invite you and your camera to my office to help me get some action shots of my new baby convicts (EEEK!)

Yes same Alan "FreshFish" is me aswell, but I wanted a name that was more.. me.

I need to buy me some convicts at somepoint to get some BAP points. Just need to have an escape plan for after they breed . I haven't practiced much on taking fish pictures, but with they way mine move I don't see how I will get a good one unless they sit still for a second.

Too funny! I have been reading on the CCAC forums how everyone continues to have numerous convicts. I hope not to get trapped. Maybe I will just dump them in my brothers tank when I visit him after I get some to breed. Hopefully he won't notice for a while

I thought for sure that my Synodontis would eat them - but I still have at least 50 babies darting around in there! So... anyone want any convicts?

Warning: these little buggers are diggers! They stirred up so much mulm in my 110 that I got BGA! It went away once I sucked out all the stirred up crap and dosed up my nitrates, but I was impressed just how much gravel they could move! Curse me and my soft heart...

I could take a few off you if you really wanted to part with some. I have a 10g (bare bottom atm) that I could place a couple. Wouldn't be a problem since I already have you to thank (or blame ) for these:

Haha, well I love my ramshorns! Great little fellas, hardworking, never seen them touch my plants, and if you're really lucky then you'll find a "sherbert" or two - I have about a dozen snails that are the color of orange sherbert, one is almost as bright as a traffic cone. You have to admit, that's pretty cool

I have to say I like them for the most part. An orange one would be sweet. I do have some that are a real light orange so maybe through reproduction I will get a brighter or darker orange one day.
