Not my usual macro quality but I tried to take some underwater photos today. Crazy fish wouldn't stand still.

Endlers are hell to get in focus shots of, mine all see me anywhere near their tank and they go into feeding frenzy begging. The one way I have managed to get ok photos of the endlers has been at night after lights out. After a suitable amount of time to allow the fish to think they wont be distrubed until the next day, go back turn the tank light back on and photograph any endlers that happen to be snoozing near the front of the tank. This works well for me because my fish are not inside the house so they dont have the usual house lights shining into their tank, or lots of movement as you do things around your house that the fish can see.

Won't turning lights on startle them? I'm thinking leave lights off and use a low light torch and external flash for fill light to take the shot. Will try that next.

The light doenst seem to startle them, but then the shed light usually comes on first while I make my way over to the tank light switches. My current camera I hate with a passion, since the flash on it seems to only illuminate to one side of the view and not the entire frame. That and the camera not having a macro setting I dont tend to use the cameras flash when photographing my fish or shrimp.

Ok, I tried with the lights off tonight and manual focus. Not quite there but getting close.

Looking good, because they are still young you should find their colour will improve and intensify as they mature.

I am surprised that the female has colour on her tail, I was under the impression that endler females had no colour much like wild type female guppies.

Nogi don't feed them for 2/3 days and then hold a piece of algae wafer or something in your fingers (right next to the lens) and then snap away :)

I'm actually finding that the BossAquaria Snow works really well.

      Guys can I help dispel some myths about differences  in the guppy female and the Endler's female . I see a lot of people claiming that their female Endler' s have a coloured tail and dorsal fin, This is not true, The true Endler female has no colour in these regions. A so called Endler female with colour has had some sort of hybridation  occurred in it's linage, A lot of people buy Endlers from some breeders when the fish are young, after a month or so the female starts showing colour on its tail and dorsal fins,  naturally the person  thinks the fish is a real Endler because the guy who sold it to them said so. when in fact it's classification is a Hybrid "K" Class.
      However there are some subtle differences between the two, I must admit it is difficult when the fish are young (Please refer to the pictures below) 
      Guys I am not down on hybrids, however i feel sorry for people who think they have one thing but have another, There are many Endler Types out there and few true Endlers
      do your checks before you buy

      deadts was start like no reason, I wasn't change anything, just weekly same water change (%10 - 15), I'm using Ro water, not with minerals, deaths start before water type changes , I did chage water type 1 week ago, ,tds was 160 ppm when deaths start, and I think maybe  lower tds is will be better for shrimp and I get lower tds to 140 now, I know it's a lot but shrimps already dying and I have nothing left to do,  I have left 3 shrimps now, 3 shrinps look good for now, no any deaths for 1 days. I think I should get KH test. if this 3 shrimps die too I will give up I think.. I use Ista shrimp soil 5.5

      It does look like a moulting problem still! Where are you on water, from the above you started RO, then went to mineral water and now gone back to RO? Is this latest RO with the added minerals for drinking or a new one? Moulting problems are probably the most common cause of problems with shrimp. You say you had no deaths for a while, did this tie in with one of these water type changes, ie have you only recently gone back to RO and that restarted the deaths? Changing water (especially when with water with different parameters from the aquarium) encourages them to moult so messing with the water as you have been is likely to have been some of the problem. What substrate are you using? How many shrimps do you have left? Calcium is included in the GH test (and magnesium) and that looks about right, though those 2 could be out of proportion. There is a test kit for just Calcium. As crabby says, it would be a good idea though to test KH, for caridina shrimp there should be little to none?  Simon

      Been a while since I posted in here. Currently running 3 racks but getting a bit too much with family/kids/work commitments. Finally decided to shut down this rack so it is now for sale if anyone is keen. I am in Brisbane. Send me a PM if you would like to view it. Also have heaps of other stuff for sale e.g. Biospon filters, Eheim 2213 and 2215, a few Hailea HC-250A chillers, etc. See my sale post here:  Cheers, JC

      I think that there are calcium test kits. A KH test kit may also be of use. But I'm not sure - jayc or someone else will probably know much more than I do on this matter.
    • lebowskia
      I don't know calcium content, how can I know that?, with test kit? and how can I lowe calcium level?  yes when shrimps is die there is shell piece mostly
