That's a very impressive first 'scape. Better than my first effort and most guys on here!
Camera sounds cool. What's wrong with the fish photos? Blurred? Noisy?
PFK did have a break from the planted scene but it's back on now... The last three or four issues have features UKAPS members' tanks! I have some planted/aquascaping articles in the pipeline too.
Yes very true we are family of fishkeepers, it does get a little obsessive at times! I think my wife thinks i am mad You have mentioned that you have a marine tank before in you posts so this may interest you, My brother just got a Fu Manchu Lionfish (Dendrochirus biocellatus) I took this pic with my phone at the weekend, but it is so cool and stays v.small and has the most amazing eyes.
Ref the Fish photos i struggle to "freeze the fish", I always get some sort of motion blur. I am limited as i don't have an external flash and i am reliant on the lighting from my tank. However i do turn all 4 t5's tubes on at the point.
I just don't seem to have nailed the technique yet.
I am a PFK subscriber and always will be, glad to hear that planted tanks are still going to feature. I particularity enjoyed the article on Tonser's Tank. UKAPS baby!
