Thanks for the compliments. This tank is part of my life and my fish are really spoiled. They are healthy and I've never missed a water change yet. Good quality food NLS, compatible tank mates, enough space, all these add up to the life quality of my fish.

@rick I'm not a photo master, but from what I've seen, in order to make a good photo you need a sufficient amount of light, a good DSLR camera with big senzor, that can handle ISO 400,800 without noise, small F, and fast shutter speed of at least 1/200. Also, by using the blitz, the aquarium environment tends to lose some details but fish colors look more natural. Also, from my experience, I need 100 shots from which I choose 4-8 good photos. I'm pretty sure that professionals need less, but what I wanted to point out is that you really need to play with the camera and take lots of pictures. Also, luck and inspiration plays a big part too. :D

Happy fishkeeping everyone

Hi Crys. Long time no see. :D
Hope you are well, and most of all, you are going to impress us SOON with a new African Dream Tank. :wink: :D

PS Let`s see some activity during a water change! My africans are busy, spawning, and doing what they do. Also, please watch out for my Elongatus Male, he`s going to challenge hard my WaterOut tube :lol: Enjoy!

Hi King,

Yup, that one is holding. But I have yellow lab females constantly holding :D This is because I have one male and 5 females. My lab male is busy all the time :D
