    Alex the Reflection photo of the Cabomba furcata is certainly going to be harder to top.

    Again the wife was looking over my shoulder and also loved that photo because of the striking colour

    Thank you guys. I still leave room for improvements, of course.
    I'll let you in on a small secret. After the latest contests i've competed in, an experienced aquarist took the liberty to send me a Canon EOS D450 body for free, as token of apreciation, leaving me with only the lens kit to buy.
    I'll keep you guys posted on this as well, hope to get it soon to try the new camera. Been dreaming for a DSLR for a long time.

    A beauty, Lindernia sp. 'India' :

    You never stop learning and progressing as you get older.

    That was a very nice gift to be sent to you.

    I have a DSLR and its never used (its because of the eye concerns) I prefer the old Digital simply because of the larger screen.

    Hello everyone, back with some good news. :D

    A new addition to my Dutch Touch :

    Rotala macrandra red sp. mini

    Roy, i'm not sure yet about L. sp India. All i can say is that it loves high lighting. Co2 also very important in the equation. I'll keep you guys posted on it. ;)

    Keith, that is so true. It seems patience is one of my strong points, so i won't rush into taking conclusions on the DSLR. Hopefully next week i'll put it to work.

    Dutch-ing I would think of you more as the "Reflection-ing" as you have made it an Art Form for others to follow.

    What new plants are you expecting?

    It looks like you are writing in another Language with big words like that.

    You must have a fantastic plant supplier.
