View Full Version : Photos of my RCS tank and a couple RCS

I hate my camera... This is the best I could get and they're poor at best. This really annoys me as I used to be into photography and had my own darkroom... now all I've got is this crappy 2 MPixel pos... *sigh* Still looking for a donor camera if anyone knows of one...

Anyway... Here's my RCS tank done on the cheap. 10G blank, Palm Filter, Sponge filter, cheap air pump I had laying around, Play sand, Rena 50W heater, Aluminum clamp lamp fixture, GE 20W 6500k CFL, Leftover Manzanita branch, Mopani wood and Anubias that I won in an RAOK contest from The Planted Tank and the rest of the plants are from other tanks or freebies.

lol. For only 2 mp? That's not half-bad. My camera has 10 and I hate it and am barely able to get it to focus as much as the first shot of yours for tank shots.

Then again I mainly hate my own camera because it's a *censored censory censorifying censor* when I try to take night photos.

Although a Digital SLR would be fabulous, I can't dare hope for anything that cool. My birthday's in Nov so I may get a new camera then, if we can spare the money, which I really doubt but my woman will insist that we get me something.... I dunno... You've heard the phrase "Champagne tastes on a beer budget" well I wish I had a 'beer budget'... that would be a dream, heh.

Awh. Who knows, though, you might find a good deal! My current (main) camera is no SLR or anything, but considering that I paid 1/3 of the price friends paid for WORSE cameras? I think waiting that little extra longer while searching really paid off.
