|What Do You Think?|
I got a camera for Christmas and I've been experimenting with taking pictures...... and not that I've got some that aren't too bad, I thought it would be interesting to see what comments I got on it. You will be able to see my two 3 1/2" Jack Dempsey's in their cloud of fry.. Hehe.. I was pleasantly surprised to find them a week ago Thursday Anyway.. Any suggestions or comments will be appreciated... oh and all my plants are fake (i guess this is like a warning)..as I have heard that Dempsey's enjoy their own aquascaping
It's a 60 gal (12'x24'x48')
thank you in advance,

That's so cool...I really wouldn't do much about aquascaping. I have a 75g with a sev, blue acara, very young JD, etc and like you said, they take care of their own aquascaping
Would love to see more pics
There is water at the bottom of the ocean

Small Fry with Ketchup
I have just a small suggestion, and I might decide I dont like it after I see a new pic, but that's the fun of aquascaping you can try something then change it if it doest work .
I'd move the tall plants from the right to the left to fill in that gap between the side of the tank and the rest of the plants.
If possible I'd try moving the cave structure towards the right some. With the driftwood, plants and rocks all on the left it becomes rather heavy. By moving the rocks (visually the heavies) to the right you balance the tank some. If it's not possible to move the caves while the fry are so youngh hold off on it for now.
And I cant post without suggesting a photo tip....use a tripod next time. If you havent got one lean against the back of a chair, stack some books up, or place the camera on a table...anything to keep the blur down .

about the plants..... i'm a little confused about what u said babelfish... was it to take the plant on the far right side and bring it to the left..then move the cave structure to the right? Just double checking... bc once i do move everything around, I want to make it as pleasing to the eye as possible!
so again....thank you sooooo much!!! oh.. just for fun, here's a pic of the JD's the night I found them....or a couple days afterward (i went a little camera crazy and took plenty many days after )
oh and thank you babelfish for the camera tricks.. i have tried a table and that one didn't work haha....but i'll be experimenting some more with it no doubt.. sorry but these aren't perfect quality either...

Small Fry with Ketchup
Yeah that's exactly what I meant, sorry I was a bit confusing I didn't have much sleep
Dont worry about not getting it right the first time, usually takes a few tries to get everything settled....same thing with the photos actually .

i have a question for bratty_girl. how did you get that wood to stay down? did you put slate at the bottom?? or did you just let it waterlogg?
|Posted 27-Feb-2006 04:37|
That wood isn't waterlogged... right now there are two heavier slate rocks tied to the middle and the end with fishing line... and also the slate rock caves are holding it down. I had it even lower before.. and the small piece is up against the filter...but i didn't want it to block the entire back of the aquarium to now see when the fish lay their next eggs when i moved it..
here's a pic of the aquarium before before..
i know the pic is blurry but you can see the wood properly placed at the bottom... as you can see it's lifted on the heavier end...and it's actually pushing up on the cover...
