Hi,

Just got a Off-camera Shoe Cord from Canon that allows me to put the flash above the tank. Still on the first part of the experience and a lot to learn but the reults are fine...

Hi,

With less more then 15 days and close to the 2 cm, the smaller kasangas are all alive and well...

The older brothers are really nice and the color improvement is big...

Hi,

Today I had another external filter - a DIY one - now I have 23300 liters/hour circulating. 7800 are efective filtration and the other just water circulation.

Dunno if it is a trait for this species. I had em with dubs, mine (red rainbows) also spawned up against the back slate or tank glass rather than what I think maybe a more natural setting on the tank floor. Thanks for the video I enjoyed it.

Hi Diogo Lopes, beautiful fish and great pictures!!!

What kind of camera did you use and what settings? I'm looking into buying a camera this holiday season - something that will help me take some nice pictures of my fish. Also, what features should I look for? Thanks for sharing your pictures!
