Nice photos Fred, have you recently bought a macro lens?

I wonder what Cryptocoryne balansae would like in place of the Vallis.

Dave.

P.S. How did you get five tubes under the hood?

Indeed I have Dave. It's the Olympus 50mm 1.2 macro lens.

Hhmm, that's an interesting idea with the Cryptocoryne balansae. The vallis is the only thin-ish plant in there. The crypt may be a bit too bold. I'll have a think though.

Concerning the hood, I did what George did on his Rio 125 apart from I joined some tubes together by the use of reflector clips.
