My Candy Cane Garden

Just got a new camera a month ago (Canon EOSD), and took some pics of my LPS. I don't know if they're necessarily my favorites, I just have the most of Candy Canes and thought I'd show them off.

I have an 80g, up and running since 10/05

I found that I was running out of room on my rocks, so I bought those Aqua-Mags and started a "garden" on the glass:

Nice corals. It looks like you just need to learn how to focus the camera for the super-closeups.

Very creative what you did! How much do those mags cost and what were the original uses for them? Did you superglue the candy canes onto it ?

Thanks everyone!!

www.aqua-mags.com I actually got the idea on RC. They cost around $15 or so for 3 of them. This is exactly what they're used for. To decorate the glass especially when I've ran out of room.
You just superglue the frags/corals onto them. They are a magnet, the other end is on the other side of the glass. You can also put them on your overflow box.

Echidna09-yeppers I know. I need the macro lens which runs about $500. I keep spending my $$ on corals so I can't quite get it yet

scapes -thanks for the info on aqua mags. Also depending on your camera, most digital cameras nowadays have the macro setting.

For example, the canon exilium camera is about 250 and it has the macro settings features that allows you to take closeup pics. Just go to like best buy and they can show you every camera that has that feature so you don't have to spend 500 on some lenses.

the red bubble thing is a cynarina. I started another thread in the LPS section called "my cynarina" I think and has a MUCH better pic of it.
