    Sorry I only had standard tanks with standard T8 lighting.

    My shrimp were always on my pre sponge filter as there was always food/algae there.

    Once they settle in and are healthy they can colour up very quickly.

    That is a lot better, it takes plenty of practice and a good camera and lens.
