    Had to switch it up a bit with some photos of others beside the Angels. The first photo is a Mikrogeophagus altispinosa. Only little guy of it kind that we have left in the 180 gallon tank. Very friendly little bugger and always keeps an eye on every move you make. Second photo is our Silver Dollars and the third is one of our Rainbows.

    Thanks guys!!!!

    @ Rouge, we have had those two for years. Rather large. Not sure how big they get? We originally had three, but lost one a good while back. Now that I know I can get good healthy stock from some of the members here at FL, I have them on a list to get more of in the future.

    Well my largest are 6.5in but they can get as big as 7. I seem to remember having one around 8 though. I might have the numbers wrong though.

    They seem to be quite hardy. What do you guys think?

    Do you mean the SD's? I think they are rather hardy. They don't do well with temperature fluctuations though and they are annoyingly hard to breed.

    Wow, these are some great pics on a great thread that I've been needing! However I need to put aside some time to go through all 10 pages worth! If anyone could be so kind and just give me a page where good info is or just a brief description of lighting, camera settings, etc. All my pics are coming out either blurry due to movement (**** crazy dannios) or blurry due to being too close (like with my tiny oto, but any further wouldn't show any detail). I'm not a big photographer but I know a little and got a pretty decent camera from my girl last x-mas (Cannon PowerShot S95). I've tried flash/no-flash (obviously no-flash is better), settings for movement, color, etc and have only got maybe a handful of good photos after taking around 100 or so...exhausting. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks

    Thanks Nutter!!!!! The Parkinsoni actually looks like it is on fire when it swims around in the aquarium. Almost as tho it has lights. Really reminds me of a lit up tail light on a car! You can spot it from anywhere in the room!!! As you know, Rainbows can be hard to get a good pic of because they swim so fast.


    You are more than welcome mjb!!!
