new photos

In the albums under "Aquariums" I've added some new photos of both my 70g and 90g aquaria today, including some sectional views as some asked for. Not too much has changed, except additional growth of some of the plants during the 5-7 weeks since the last general photos. It is indicative of how the growth can be slower but lush and steady in aquaria without additional CO2.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Thanks indeed, I truly appreciate it. I need a new camera too, mine is a cheap one from a few years ago and even photos outdoors are often not true to the colours and not always sharp. I tried all the white and colour settings on my camera and this is the best settings for the aquaria but the plants are not all that well defined in the photos and the tanks in general look "green" which in real life they do not.

Thanks again,
Byron.

I ordered the Canon PowerShot SX 110.
Found it online for $200. Seen some aquarium shots posted by some other people with this camera and I was pretty amazed by the picture quality. Seems the price of cameras has really come down. My first digital, I paid about the same price for 6 years ago and it was always a piece of junk.

Byron, Your tanks look great. I am sorely tempted to resume my efforts at a planted tank soon as I move some Severums from the particular tank I am considering.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
