Canon T3i

The tank is coming along VERY nicely. That AR really got a nice deep red to it. Nice pics, too. What camera are you using?
Thanks!

I use a Canon T3i with the nifty 50 lens(great lens for under $100)
Settings:Tv Mode
f/1.8
1/160 sec.
ISO 100

Trying to find a great plant for the left corner. Having issues with algae plus the cyperus likes to melt, but still hanging in there.

Cool man... just getting into photography myself. I was going to buy a Canon, but ended up with a Samsung nx300. My GF has that nifty fifty lens, works great on her Canon (which I borrow occasionally). She just got the 40mm pancake lens. It's super nice.

Anyways, you should try Hemianthus micranthemoides in the corner. It would fill in nice, has a small leaf structure (to help maintain scale), and is easily shaped with some trimming.

Hydrocotyle sp. Japan would be easy for the corner as well.

Or, you can go with dark green like attaching some fissiden fontanus or flame moss to some dark lava stones or SS mesh. They'd look like dark green bushes. The flame moss can be grown tall, which would be cool too.

Hey there. Your setup is very nice. I love the plant color with black background contrast. Plus your camera really captures the look very well. I have a similar setup and I have a few questions that I was hoping you could help me out with.

1. What setting do you keep your light on?
2. Did you run into any algae issues?
3. How's the flow with the 2213?

I've got a 12 long, sat+, 2213, dsm hc, about to flood soon. Just looking for pointers.

I like to set my lights on the sun with little clouds moving. Some algae(I took out CO2 for the shrimp and had to do less light) change water once a week. The Pumps seems to be a good flow for this size tank. When taking pics, setup camera for long exposure(1/30), low ISO(100) and focus however you want it. Turn all lights off but the tank and you should have a nice clear shot. I'll post a pic at this setting.
