When it browned out on my it stopped growing completely. But it is doing ok now not quite as fast as Ziggy's. I have mine in lower light, it may grow faster in more light.

The hawkins looks like it is doing very well. Mine grew like made and I could never explain why exactly. Jimbo is correct it was about 10x larger than it was when I got it at the end of my tank.

I love that sunset. It along with the pokerstar and rainbow are among my favorites!

Thanks Ziggy. What tank placement did you have your Hawkins? I am keeping my eye out for a pokerstar or rainbow. I have one piece of Tonga brach which I think would look cool encrusted with one of those montis.

Yep, I am using the Canon SLR XSI with the lens it came with. I desperately need the macro lense for this camera.

Do you have a tripod? Im sure you'll get much better pics if you set it on a 2-sec timer and not have your finger move the camera when you click. not sure Macro lens is a good way to go as they need to be rather close to the object and well. ou can with a glass/acrylic panel in the way.
