Help with Identification please...
]I have a few different variations of platies in my tank but cannot seem to ID them all. Attached are some Pic's together with what I THINK they might be, where possible (Oh, and do ANY of the females look pregnant to you?)
I am not sure if this on is a Platy or a Molly...
Neon Blue Platy?
Again, no idea?
Some type of Red Blacktail or Blacktail Red Platy...LOL
I have one or 2 ore but the seem to e a little more camera shy...when I can catch them off gaurd I will post them.
The first one looks like a molly and besides that all the others look to be platies. Specifically I cannot tell you the name, but at least you know the species.
Goodness, you've got yourself some gorgeous fish there, wonderful pictures. What type of camera do you use?
I'm pretty sure the last one is a Red Wagtail Platy, and the first is a Balloon Molly, but I'm not the most knowledgeable in the different strains and colors...
I'll skim google and see what I can come up with for you :-)
I agree, nice clear shots. What's the camera and settings? I wish I could take pictures that well.
Why is it that everybody thinks good pictures must be from a good camera, what about the photographer...:-D...only kidding...photography is my other hobby.
I use a Canon 400D Digital SLR camera with the standard 18-55 lens, and alot of patience.
Of the 20 - 30 pictures I took only about 8 of them were worth using. I then went into photoshop and cropped out the fish in question...
Oooooooh, fellow Photographer :-D I must say I fail in comparison however :oops: If I could only afford a new camera......:lol: Maybe I just need to read more....
Haha, it seems to always be that way....for every 10-20 pictures only one is acceptable. A little frustrating, but I think its worth it ;-)
Fustrating indeed, but can you imagine doing it before the discovery of DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY...How many expensice 35mm film rolls would you gp though to get THE ONE shot worth keeping...:shock:
Ugh, I know! I don't think I'd be able to deal with that :shock: My dad talks about it a lot, photography was his hobby in High School, before they had digital stuff. I can only imagine how horrible it would be to develop a roll of film and find, like, nothing good on it....
Thanks for the compliments about the pictures, and thanks to those that replied
