oh i see what happened. its not a true FTS. the tank is like 4 feet wide and i couldn't go back far enough to get the full thing in the pic so the left side has several inches cut off. see all the green? moss...or algae or something. idk it just started growing one day. but in your defense, my brother bought a bunch of new rock and re-aquascaped it so it looks a lot different than when you saw it

mass of moss

lol

MONTIS! omgomgomg
Lol I love montis


they are pretty freaking awesome :D i want the superman monti thing but i've never actually seen one in a store

The grain is digital noise from what I can tell just looking at the picture. Is it set to auto mode (you just aim and shoot the picture)? If so, what auto mode assumes is that you are holding the camera (no tripod) and it adjusted the speed (ISO) to a higher number (think high=grain or noise) so that you can hand hold it in the darker light. When light is good it uses a lower number, less grain/noise.

So some times the picture may come out better (no grain/noise because the lighting/time of day was better in the room. You can use flash, but have it at an angle so it bounces off the glass not into the glass and into your picture. Try 30-45 degrees and see if that helps. I can explain it more if you need, but I wanted to see if it was in auto mode or if something else is wrong.

Tank is looking better and better!

thanks! that makes sense. i kept messing around with different settings and modes, but you were right, most of them were taken on auto mode. it's not my camera so i don't really know how to use it and i'm kind of technologically challenged :lol: i'll try those tips though

Noo way, so did I! :lol:

Haha I think it was just one of her "moments"

:scarry: A while ago I was going to buy a b&w misbar from craigslist, when I got there the clown wasn't the tank, and then finally it was discovered dead where it had jumped into the back chambers :tears:
Maybe try to put some netting over it, or make the wall taller?
