I will post updated video soon as well. The shrimp seem to be more photogenic for still shots Smile

Ghost shrimp mimicking a leaf


Flower shrimp moving around the tank


the amano shrimp grew much bigger than expected

Great pics. I especially like the Ghost Shrimp. You caught a priceless pose. It looks like the plant is part oh his body. Thanks for sharing.

Great pix once again! ThumbsUp I've noticed also that the Amano shrimps get bigger than expected. Can you measure it in mm and post the size?
Everything is looking good!

I have a point and shoot, Canon PowerShot SX120IS.

I use the Shutter Speed Priority Setting (Tv), Macro setting on, and no flash.

On the Shutter speed priority setting I use between 1/40th and 1/60th depending on light in fish tank and what looks good in the LCD.

Is that helpful?

Wow, your tank looks great. Really like the DW that looks like a bridge over a stream.

Thanks Ron, The tank will be ever evolving over time, but this set up has been very nice and stable for a few months now.
