Be my guest Adam, I see it as a compliment. :D
I can even upload a bigger version if you want. The original is a much bigger picture, I just made it a bit smaller to fit better on the boards.

Thanks all!
I have a lot more shots, but none as good as this one. It really was a lucky shot that came out really sharp.

Old picture redone

While experimenting with my photography and software I redid a picture from a while back. I think it turned out pretty nicely and so thought I'd share it here once again in it's new form. I think it shows the grace that the kubs have when swimming. http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn167/Dutch_lol/...

Forgot to say how impressive this tank is, really beautiful! I love aquascapes and was really impressed when I first saw the tanks of Mr. Amano. His books still top my "to buy" list.

I recently bought a DSLR camera, the Nikon D80 with the 18-70mm f3.5 - 4.5 lens. http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn167/Dutch_lol/D8017-70.jpg It's a 10.2 MP camera and is almost a semi-pro DSLR, so it takes a while to learn how to use it and requires a large budget if aquarium photography becomes...

When people use a biological filtration system it's usually located under the tank and thus requires a pump that can lift the water up into the tank above. (The same principle applies to canister filters.) The pump in my internal filter also needs to lift the water. The pump is located at the bottom...

The smallest fish I have are Danio 's and they seem perfectly happy to swim in the currents. I was just thinking, I'm using the powerhead in a filter and so it has to be a powerhead, but if you're just after watermovement a powerhead might not be the best choice. Powerheads have the strength to lift...

I have the Aquaclear 70 powerhead installed in my custom internal filter and have been very happy with the result. My tank is 125cm(~4ft) x 60(~2ft) x 50(~1.5ft, waterheight) and the powerhead gives a great flow in which my B. kubotai enjoy playing, even my Danio 's seem to enjoy picking a spot that...

Great pictures! They've never really been my favorite (the serpentine loaches) but I can understand why so many people love them, they have a very unique character.

It's just a funny difference I noticed in 'aquarist-culture' (for lack of a better term). We Dutch seem to be drawn more towards natural looking aquaria and/or heavily planted ones, but I've seen that in North America it's often more about creating something that looks nice but without any "rules" o...
