Crappy shots?

Great pics! Keep it up!

I'm currently explaining to the missus how to use our dslr. She's a theoretical learner. I'm a experimental learner. So teaching her is difficult lol

No worries bb, using a canon 100mm L series macro lens with a canon Speedlite 600 ex-rt mounted onto a canon 550D. My technique, well all I did was turn off auto focus and basically point and shoot

      It may be a good idea to 'at least' decide Bee shrimp or Cherry shrimp at this stage, as they prefer different water parameters and you can then work towards those ideals? As blue ridge has said, Flip import most of their shrimp from what I have seen on the youtube videos? Simon

      Have you actually seen one of these? I got one and it had great pictures but it isn't really about anything in particular and I binned the one I got as apart from the great photos there was nothing really of interest just bits and pieces about 'breeders n keepers', so I couldn't complain as that was what it was called. I wanted a book about all aspects of keeping shrimps and this wasn't that. I believe one f the experts has written a book and I wish I bought it when I saw it on my suppliers website as it has also gone now. I recommend seeing one before buying though as it MAY not be what you want/think it is???? Simon

      Gotcha. I’ve really been eyeing some ,”Fire Reds,” or some,”Blue Dreams,” from LRBretz, those are out of this world.

      Does anyone know if these are in print anywhere? They don't seem to print nearly enough copies to meet demand, issue after issue sells out and is gone forever.

      I wonder why that would be? I'd think an oak is an oak wherever it's growing. Perhaps a result of me leaving them in the sun? It's not a big issue, once they get soaked they become pliable and soft it's just a head scratcher...
