Haha..  I  dont  have  a  macro  lens  mate!
 Just  a  basic  kit  lens  (18-55)  with  macro  rings  that  I  bought  from  India  for  maybe  like  100-150  rupees.                

 
 The  basic  (18-55mm,  f3.5-5.6)  IS/  IS  II  kit  lens  from  Canon  is  a  macro  lens  (though  not  a  dedicated  one)  and  the  extender  ring  has  served  its  purpose  well.
 Hat's  off  to  you  for  entertaining  us  with  your  skills-  both  aquaristic  and  photographic!  Keep  them  coming.

 Update  June  7th
 
 Hello  folks,
 
 Time  for  a  small  update  with  a  few  pictures.
 Tank  is  doing  great.  Fought  a  small  war  with  spirogyra  again.  Its  under  control  now.  Plants  are  still  recovering  from  the  brutal  trim  that  they  got  a  week  ago.  
 In  my  last  consignment  from  Rachel  I  got  some  Dario  hysginon.  Wonderful  fish  with  a  hell  lot  of  attitude.  They  took  their  time  to  settle  down  but  now  they  are  fine.  Doing  good.  They  weren't  eating  anything  initially.  So  I  went  ahead  with  adult  brine  shrimps.  It  really  helped  them  making  themselves  comfortable  in  my  tank.  My  strategy  is  first  to  make  them  comfortable  with  live  food  and  then  slowly  switch  to  frozen  food.  
 Here  are  the  photos  -  
 
 When  I  first  got  Dario  hysginon.  Oh  yeah  that's  Syngonanthus  sp  'Madeira'.  Thanks  to  Joraan-
 
 
 
 
 And  once  they  settled  down,  their  true  color  came  out-
 
 
 Show  aggression  mixed  attitude  if  other  male  comes  into  one's  territory-
 
 
 
 
 They  were  really  in  wonderful  shape.  Rachel  always  has  quality  fish  to  offer-
 
 
 
 
 Constantly  looking  for  food  and  girls.  haha-
 
 
 Even  Eriocaulon  flower  looks  suspicious-
 
 
 All  pumped  up  in  front  of  their  girlfriends-
 
 
 Here's  photo  of  an  Endler  that  I  forgot  to  share  in  last  update.  Wonderful  colors  they  have-
 
 
 I  took  some  more  shots  of  Hypoptopoma  gulare.  I  have  written  a  small  blog  post  about  their  eating  habits  -  [URL="http://playsofrays.blogspot.com/2013/06/hypoptopoma-gulare.html"]Here's  the  LINK[/URL]
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Rotala  sunset  has  settled  down  too.  It  doesn't  like  a  lot  of  Nitrates.  It  immediately  response  with  new  green  growth.
 
 
 Same  goes  for  Ammania  sp.bonsai.  If  someday  I  dose  nitrates  a  bit  more,  the  very  next  day  it's  tips  will  become  green.  
 
 
 And  one  of  my  favorite  plants..  Tonina  fluvalitis  'lotus  bloom'-
 
 
 And  now  some  mobile  uploads.  Photos  that  I  took  from  my  Iphone-
 
 Alternanthera  Reineckii  'Mini'  makes  a  wonderful  contrast  spot  in  the  foreground-
 
 
 Polygonum  kawagoeanum  grows  so  fast.  But  I  hate  its  habit  of  loosing  its  lower  leaves-
 
 
 Oh  yeah..  I  also  have  narrow  leaf  Java  fern  in  my  tank.  haha..
 New  Life-
 
 
 Syngonanthus  belem-
 
 
 Thanks  to  Sean  for  this  big  clump  of  Staurogyme  sp  purple-
 
 
 Recently  I  saw  Aponogeton  madagascariensis  at  LFS.  Somewhere  deep  down  there  was  a  desire  to  try  out  this  plant.  So  I  bought  it.  I  know..  I  know..  It  grows  big  and  will  cover  my  small  tank  in  no  time.  i  know..  But  I  cant  help  my  heart.  Somethings  arent  suppose  to  be  given  a  second  thought.  It  was  one  of  those  things  -  
 
 
 These  leaves  melted  away  in  just  one  night  haha..  And  then  2  days  later,  I  saw  a  pink,  very  delicate  laced  leaf  coming  out  of  the  bulb-
 
 
 And  last  but  not  the  least..  My  auratus.  They  are  growing  with  a  fast  pace.  I  still  cant  figure  out  their  sex.  haha..
 
 
 Some  videos  that  I  took  from  my  phone  -  
 
 Greedy  Boraras  brigittae-
 [url="www.youtube.com/watch?v=SL0U0gr3uwI"]Greedy  Boraras  brigittae  -  YouTube[/url]
 
 My  tank  -  
 [url="www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtBc1R9Exas"]60-P  -  YouTube[/url]
 
 A  koi  pond  at  a  LFS  here  -  
 [url="www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQ4Xdd6oV2Y"]Koi  pond  -1  -  YouTube[/url]
 
 Crazy  co2  bubble.  Hahaha...
 [url="www.youtube.com/watch?v=vC3mXDDW1Wo"]Crazy  CO2  bubble  -  YouTube[/url]
 
 Thats  it  for  today..  I  hope  you  guys  have  enjoyed  this  update.  Stay  tuned  for  more  fun.

 That's  a  very  tough  thing  you  just  asked  for.  But  a  good  idea.  Will  try  to  come  up  with  a  list  soon.
 A  few  more  plants  are  coming  this  weekend.

 I  was  just  wondering  about  you  guys'  taste  about  the  updates.  What  do  you  prefer  -
 One  photo  updated  daily..  or  A  lot  of  them  every  10-15  days  ?
 Let  me  know  your  views.
 I've  recently  got  my  flash  delivered  and  I  swear  the  photos  I'm  taking  with  it,  are  the  best  i've  taken  ever..  Its  just  so  amazing.
