About Me

  1. I love the world of the small, it's such a complex and beautiful part of nature happening all around us that we usually never see. So share your macro shots! Me feeding fry baby brine from a pipette.
  2. Ive been enjoying taking tons of photos of my fish lately and thought id share some of them that didnt necessarily fit in the macro photography thread. Do you have any favorite fish photos youd like to share? Lets see em
  3. How have you been enjoying nature recently? Whether it’s the nature you keep and maintain in your home, or somewhere you explored, if it has brought you joy feel free to share! I have mostly been working outside the store since returning to work. The other day I got to enjoy a few moments of this visiting dragonfly between customers.
  4. A mystery snail "walking" along the sand.
  5. It's not everyday that I get to build something in the warehouse, but when we needed to run an airline system to get circulation going to our newest plant tanks I was happy to play builder for a day. 1" PVC Ziss Never Clog Airstones Aquarium Co-Op Black Airline Tubing Aquarium Co-Op threaded individual air line valves and 2 Medo LA-45 linear piston air pumps. Each tank has 3 Ziss airstones to bring in a ton of air and move around a lot of water. My 2 tips will be 1) make your holes along the printed text to keep them aligned, and 2) use the drills chuck to screw in the air valves to save your fingers a lot of pain. 🙂
  6. Show your best pic of your fish/ plants!!
  7. Often I think "the more light the better," but I think these lower light photos turned out well.
  8. Hello everybody, As you could probably tell, Corydoras are my favorite fish. Post your pictures of your cory cats here along with the species name if possible. Here I have my albino and green cories (C. aeneus), both adult and baby peppered cories (C. paleatus), and pygmy cories (C. pygmaeus.). Thanks!
  9. Shire USA... Western MD birding view. 6:00 am, Memorial Day. Land of the free.
  10. My phone camera hasn't been cutting it lately, especially when photographing my fish/ aquariums. I have started think about getting a camera for my fish tanks. As of lately I have shown interest in photography. So I was wondering for all you photographer out there... What are your tips and tricks when photographing fish that never stop moving, or just small fish? What kind of gear do you use? a macro lens on your phone? or a camera, what kind of camera?
  11. I love Jimmy’s photography. And if they made high quality prints for your fish room of fish jimmy had shot, I bet it would be a hit. I’m dying for a high quality L134 picture for above their tank. please Cory!
  12. Ok everyone! I know you got them so let’s see them! Show. Off. Those. BETTAS!!! Here is mine. He is a Green Dragon. I’m quite proud of him. He is super cool.
  13. I generally love shopping for fish online. I like being able to take my time, do my research, and get the exact kind of fish I want. But one thing I don't understand is why so many sellers will have shots of a fish in their hand or a bunch of fish in a net out of the water. I feel so bad for the distressed fish, and still doesn't show colors or size very well, at least in my opinion. Why do so many fish sellers use them?
  14. @Streetwise has suggested themed daily photo threads so I thought I would start it off with the top-view of the 1930s Historically Accurate Planted Aquarium. It is nearly ready to roll. As you can tell it gets a lot of direct sunlight.
  15. Hey Friends! I'm working on a presentation for my Ichthyology class about Cichlids, and I can't really find any photos of Cichlids in their natural habitat in SA or CA. I found some good ones from the reef lakes in Africa, but everything on the new world cichlids is from an aquarium perspective. If you have some, and wouldn't mind me sharing to a class of about 5, I would really appreciate it! Thanks and happy fishkeeping!
  16. I want to add more plants to my tank. The more oxygen the better, right? I would love some heavily planted inspo! Please share !
  17. Back then this was just a sideshow to the big Angelfish and Discus tank, but it had CO2 and T5 lighting. The size was 29 gallons and I had gotten the back panel from a friend in Germany.
  18. Hi everyone, I've recently become very fascinated wuth detritus worms and want to learn more about them and their life cycle. Yesterday I put a manzanita branch into my betta tank. Today I noticed a couple of detritus worms on it and thought nothing of it, because why would I? But then I realized... these have to be new detritus worms and thus must have just built their casings... or maybe they are still building them! I looked, and sure enough they were wiggling around, appearing to grab...detritus... and it looked like they were pulling it back or maybe eating it. I took a short timelapse that just shows a couple of them wiggling around on the branch and uploaded it here if you'd like to watch it.
  19. This is my madagascar lace plant its one of my favorites had it for a long time and in the last few months it has finally taken off.
  20. The new DSLR thread has me wondering if anyone else here is super into photography? It seemed like there were a few of you out there! What do you shoot with? What kind of photography are you into? I ran my own family portrait side-business for several years and also worked as a second shooter with my friend who is a wedding photographer, and really loved it! I shoot with a Nikon D700, and D300, and have always REALLY loved shooting nature and macro photography. If you are a photographer - share some of your favorite photos taken here! A few of my faves...
  21. So I've gotten tired of trying to get good pictures with my cell phone, and I needed a new hobby.. So I bought a DSLR and picked it up a Best Buy on my lunch break yesterday. I got the Canon EOS RP Mirrorless with the 24-105mm lens bundled together. I know relatively little about photography, so I was wondering if I could get some basic tips on getting good pictures of my fish. Here's a few from me playing around with it last night: https://imgur.com/a/J4CBRK2#jxhDCOS Some of these turned out okay, but they're obviously not as good as they could be. I'm finding that the auto mode on this camera prevents me from getting too many unrecognizable photos, but rarely produces anything of decent quality. So, I turned off some of the auto settings and used manual ISO, manual focus, and manual shutter speed. Then I shut off all the other lights in the room, and focused on one tank at a time. Here's what I came up with. https://imgur.com/a/NXpsAsW#O68hfqt I tried some tips I got on another forum, and added a bright (150W LED) floodlight to the top of the tank to serve as a flash of sorts. I ended up getting tons of Limia Nigrofasciata glam shots, as they're my newest addition - how do you think I could improve on these? The glass could obviously use some deeper cleaning, and this particular tank is a bowfront with limited viewing angles, which makes it hard to photograph. https://imgur.com/a/oqP9ru3#rBUTCzh Thanks for any tips!
