    Nope, Fujifilm bridge camera. The light though leaves images looking grainy, or grainy and too bright. This is the next best photo I took, not that great either:- It's not helping that the glass needs cleaning. lol Between my kids and the dogs nose, it gets a bit smeared very quickly. lol...

    Best shrimp for my tank?

    Sorry to disagree, but blue pearls were bred from neocaridina cf. zhangjiajiensis rather than neocaridina heteropoda (cherry shrimp), so are actually kin of snowball shrimp rather than cherry shrimp. Not that it makes much difference, care is identical, as is their prolific breeding. The one...

    Actually Radk, there IS a PAR difference, especially noticeable at depth. As to spread, there's quite a big trade off. The TMC 1000ND could easily light a 60cm square, but had real problems with deep tanks. The Arcadia gets around this by more tightly clustering the diodes giving a narrower...
