Very nice pictures and great fish too. You're keeping these guys with discus right? How is that mix working out for you? Just curious as I'm trying the same thing.

Thanks, dshort!
Yes, that combination â€" Discus/Rainbows/Tetras… works very successfully and harmonic since last 10 years in my tanks… :!:
You had seen yet one of my biggest tank:
(The others smaller and similar tanks like that, you will see in my next posts…)



Thanks, Aaron!
Yeah, it’s easy to get them in line…if just argument them with some “gooood reasonâ€

Yes, Aaron, The last two are better than the first set, because it’s just a not cropped close ups…
You know â€" it’s every millimeter closer to fish, shooting macro, giving much more details and sharpness…:idea:
Here is a curious compares between some shots of mine, made with CANON 350D Kit lens (the first 5 photos)
and the last shots with Canon 50 mm/f2.5 Macro (the last 4 photos)

Glossolepis Incisus

The 'Discus Background' picture, the first one, is a work of art. I would love to have a framed print of it.

That fish has really such a diferent faces...
For some "Big Experts" it's just a cheap,nondescript... Hybrid !
But I’m glad to have that fish in my Discus/Rainbows tanks!
Will be curious to know, seeing next pictures, who will be disagree with me about his beauty…!?

Talking about their magnificent colors… continuing with some typical rainbows changing colors of Melanotaenia Trifasciata:









May be the compares between this two close up of those male are significant:





And that is a females close up, much modest in coloration than the males…
