Nice shots. I wish I had a camera that worked as nicely. More, we want more.

More will come but not at 2:24 in the morning .
The camera is not really that pro, it is a Sony alpha200 DSLR. Not the best by far.
The real work is done by the TamronAF90mm F/2.8 Di 1:1 macro lens that is IMO the BEST 1:1 macro lens ever made by the hand of the earthlings. It's more than a double win, the price is almost half the price of a Sony lens with the same specs and it performs way better. I wish i knew about tamron before spending my money on sony lenses since sony lenses are priced by brand not by performance .
Anyway will come with more tomorow after i change the water, cut some heads(plants heads not fish heads ), fert the tank and bump the co2 to insane levels.
Glad you enjoy my pics.

I expect nothing. I fear no one. I am free.
Excuse my bad and rusty english but i did not have your luck to be born or to live in a country where the main language is english.
P.S I am not rude, i just hate stupidity and act accordingly.

Yep, Redknee's got the serious advantage over all of us in the "pic of the month" contest.

Comments: It looks fantastic!
Rants: Why can't I have a camera like that? No fair! No fair!
Ideas: Other than banning you from the monthly contests??
Input: What bottom dwellers do you have in this tank? (I can't recall)

Thank you!
You can have a camera like that, think anyone can, but it's the hand/eye not the camera
Gulp... admins and moderators... can i have a clone or 2?
Got 3 CAE and a pleco of sorts.
Not long ago(like a few days) i was about to quit the whole aquarium hobby, was so frustrated that my tank is not what i expected of it... So i ignored it for a couple of days, didn't even look at it, just fed the fish and drop the ferts and carbo in but paid 0 attention to the plants, etc.
Today i decided it's time to get the plants out, water out, catch the fish and donate them, stop the filters, unplug the lights, smash the tank, you know the works.
So as i was feeding the fish something caught my eye... the anubias flower.
Then i took a good look at the tank once more and saw what you saw in the above pictures.
It decided to indulge me... It looked like i wanted it to look and it even grew a flower for me...
So i took the camera and shared it, it deserves to be seen. After all the work, time, lost neurons, money, fights with the wife, etc, the tank became my place of peace, my corner of heaven, a place to
lose myself and relax.
Good night.

How could you possibly want to quit the hobby after getting your tank to look that good? That's like Led Zeppelin finishing up work on Led Zeppelin II and deciding that music's not for them.

Thanks, i am flattered to be compared with them and my tank with their work. BUT
If they decided that music is not for them we would have lost probably 30% of what music is today. If i quit this hobby nobody would lose nothing .
I'm just another amateur looking to perfect his work but with slim chances of ever making something trully worth remembering in the fish keeping hobby.
