View Full Version : June 14 update

First off, I need to cower a bit because I'm just now getting around to posting my pics from last weekend. Things have been crazy but no excuse. Anyway, here they are. They're still doing great. The rush the tank anytime someone walks up and they're eating like pigs. My wife swears they've grown a lot but for me it's harder to gauge since I stare at them all the time. For these pics, I moved the light off of the filter to put more light in the tank. In fact, they don't seem to mind too much so I've modified the filter so it only provides partial filtering to half the tank. Also played with my camera settings so that I didn't use a flash and messed with the ISO settings. Seems to work but I still want to mess around some more.

So, here's my pics. Hope you enjoy.

Wow, what a difference, great pictures.
I think your wife is right, they look bigger to me. Their colors look great.
Great job Kirk :):)

I think your wife is right. They look bigger. Comparing them to the flowerpot is a good way to tell if they have grown. They get more beautiful every day. Good job Kirk.
