    New lens came in the mail a couple of days ago. It's the Nikon 105 f/2.8 (macro lens). These are some pictures Ian took of our 90 gallon reef tank :D

    Some failed feeding photo attempts, once the lion fish tears the food apart it is game over for halfway decent shots.

    You are killing me!
    I have recently gone back to all of my fish forums because I want to start a tank up again!

    One of my friends used to be a manager at the Mall of America aquarium and he's offered to help me set up a saltwater tank (his were GORGEOUS!) but I don't have the funds nor the permission from el landlordio. So for now I will just be completely jealous of your setup!

    WOW! So beautiful! It's so hard for me to get tank pictures!

    Your tank is gorgeous! I've always wanted saltwater, but right now it's not a possibility.

    I LOVE saltwater tanks.

    Man, that's soothing me just looking at it. I miss my fish tank. It didn't look anything like yours, though.

    Thanks for all of the compliments!

    Technically, lion fish can eat anything that can fit in their mouths. This is a fuzzy dwarf lion and we doubt the clowns could fit in his mouth.
