Just a peek while I get everything setup.

I was originally looking for common / wild colourations but then I fell in love with these little guys.

2.5-3" long
My white balance is off a big so the colours are a little washed out.

They're not big on pellets, so I'm been going with bloodworms, mosquito larvae, and meal worms.
I'll blend up a nice DIY combo today or tomorrow.

Very nice... you went with the oscars eh... how many did you get? I thought I would share this video of an Oscar we once had, hilariously cranky :)

Just 2, They'll live in my 75 for now, and then move over to a 125 or a 180 as they grow.

Canon T5i and something from my Lens collection. I seem to be collecting lens like tanks. And I thought Aquariums was expensive.

Love the pic. I have a T2i. What kind of setting did have to get that pic do you know?

First one is 1/125 F2.8 ISO 800 with a 40mm prime lens

Second one is 1/100 F4 ISO 1600 with a 70-200mm telephoto

Well this project is cancelled due to the wife's downsize request.

Working on the tanks re-distribution today, what a mess. I didn't actually realise how much stuff I own.
