LED night shot and ram

After some fiddling, I finally figured out how to get a good night shot of my tank with the LED's on. Just had to slow down the shutter speed...seems like a duh moment now.



By the way, it's not actually that bright, I just turned the shutter speed to 15 seconds and let her loose, it's about half that bright though.

I also got a good shot of one of my rams.

Wow. You have a really beautiful set up, and you're clearly as good with a camera as you are with a tank.

You give me too much credit, haha. I basically just tinker until I find something that works. I'm no expert in either

How do you think the "pro's" learn?

That's true I suppose. You think either is photo competition worthy? I thought I had a good shot for the september contest, but then I saw some of the others thay were worlds better. haha

I think it's 8 actually, one of them is blocked by some floating riccia, the the one on the far right doesn't show up as well as the others for some reason. As far as the wattage goes....well you've got me. I have no clue. haha

What are the ways you tell the difference between male and female rams?

the females generally have a pink spot on their bellies. The males also tend to have longer spikes on the front of their dorsal fins. The males also usually have a pure black spot whereas the female's usually have some blue speckling in it

Ok thanks, just seeing if one of my rams is a male and the other is a female and I think that might be the case.

You do have a male and a female. I'll show you some pics of the ones I am getting on Wednesday. They are half wild blood. Hopefully they will already have quite a bit of color. It may be Saturday at the latest before I post pics.
