With christmas getting close, i´ve thinking it´s time to change cameras.
Mine is just too old to take trully good photos...plus my skills are nonexistent.

I was hoping someone could give me a few pointers on which type of camera to acquire. I´m not looking for anything fancy....just something decent enough to take quality photos, with a good macro. I ignore how much a good camera usually goes for...but i´m on a tight budget so i´m looking for something affordable.

Hey Rodrigo. I do have a Canon EOS400D witch is a very nice camera at my eyes. I bought it for a reasonable price around 600€ at 2 or 3 years. But just like you i fell prepared to the next step and I am going to deal a Canon 7D witch is one of the most recent models being the body it self 1400€ plus at least 200€+ for a reasonable lens. Of course things aren't truly easy and I am going to sell my EOS Canon 400D for around 300€. You could get a new one for almost the same price like 400€ or so. And I advise you that. Because its a wonderful camera having 10.1 Million pixels; anti noise system, moderate ISO speed as well as other very nice features. I have took "Epic" shots with it, that i will keep for many years... When you got the touch on it, you take wonderful shots! Be sure of it! And the price is very nice as well! If you could be a little fancy a Canon 7D would be the extasy:D
18.1 Million pictures; Mg body, Amazing video recorder but thousands of lovely things:wacko:
Cheers,

Hi Azhael.
I have a digital Panasonic DMC-TZ15 (bought it on ebay) and am really happy with it. Ive had it about a year now and it really does take a nice pic. It has a 10x optical. I think I paid about AUD$250.00.

    I had a axolotl hatch after 7 days of being layed and my brine shrimp won't be ready till Monday for feeding. Will he be able to make it or is there anything I can try feeding him in the meantime?

    I do not have my Axolotl’s yet waiting for my cycle to complete! I am towards the end of my 30g fishless cycle. It has been a long journey. I have easily been processing 4ppm of ammonia in 24 hours for about a week.Each night I add 4ppm ammonia ( Dr Tims) and test every 12 hrs and nitrites read around 2ppm but when I test after 24hrs they are at 0 nitrites. I am using API master Kit. Should nitrites be constantly 0 in a 24 hour period or is a spike 12 hours later normal? Is my tank cycled? PH- is 7.4 Nitrates- 40ppm and will do water change once I am sure tank is cycled

    Hi guys! I just have a quick question regarding axoltols. I’ve had my lotl since October and she is a year old now! Anyways, her water has been on the warmer side of the spectrum (about 69-70 degrees F, 20ish C). I finally got a fan to blow over the top of the tank, and it decreased to about 64 f in 2 hours. Super happy to be able to keep the water cooler, but I was wondering if axoltols have any reaction to the water suddenly becoming cold? Should I lower the temp more slowly? My lotl isn’t acting stressed or anything, but I just want to make sure there won’t be any problems. Thanks!

    Also, she was fine at the higher temperature. Perfectly healthy and never showed signs of de stress. Just thought it being colder would make her happier and digest a little slower! (She’s a pig :p )

    @Paige1warren That should be fine. I wouldn't suddenly put her in very cold water without acclimatisation, but a few degrees over the course of two hours shouldn't be a problem at all.

    I have had my 2 axolotls since June 2020 and I had hoped they would mature the same gender but unfortunately they are not. I am currently on vacation and planned to separate them once I returned, my axolotls are currently being cared for by a friend who knows the basics to care for them properly. A melanoid and a leucistic. I had a feeling but didn't prioritize it enough and now I have many many eggs in the tank with both of my axolotls. I have zero experience with eggs and cannot really care for juvenile axolotls but I really DO NOT want to kill them. What should I do? Are my axolotls okay being in the same tank with them? would the eggs be okay all together in a tank by themselves? Where can I find someone to care for them and hatch them?I'm so stressed and worried I just want the best for them all.

  • axie owner:
    you are going to have to get a bucket and put the eggs in that. they can hatch anytime between 11 and 20 days. order in brine shrimp eggs and get your friend to watch a video on hatching them. make sure your friend does 100% water changes every day. keep the water around 64digres and make sure your friend sends daily updates on them. i found kitchen salt works for the brine shrimp eggs. hope this helps.

    I am a new owner of two juvenile axolotls that are Lucie's. One has black eyes and one has silver eyes. Is that common or rare?

    Hi guys.. I might of made an error and need some advice. One of the hides in my tank is too small for my axie now, but I did not want to buy another hide because they are expensive, so I decided to DIY one. I used a Tupperware (cut into a little home) and glued rocks from outside and plants on it. The problem is, I washed the rocks with soap and hot water. I completely wasn’t thinking. When I washed them there was no soap residue that was visible on the rocks, and the rocks have been drying for 3 days on the container. So it has been 3 days since I washed them. I used aquarium safe silicone to glue them on. It was fully dry tonight so I decided to put it in my tank. I had it in for about 3 mins until I realized j had washed the rocks in soap, and I took it out immediately. Should I be worried??? I’m really freaking out, I don’t want anything to happen to my baby! I was truly not thinking. I also read that it was safe to use rocks from outside, but now I’m not sure? Can anyone help

    @Paige1warren, Since you took it out straight away it should be ok but I'd still be doing a big water change. When I was a teen, I took some rocks from outside, washed them (probably in soap) and put them in my turtle tank. He died a week or so later and I've never used any rocks from the garden since because you just don't know what's been on them, such as pesticide and I suppose the mineral composition of the rock comes in to play too. Letting them dry for a few days before adding them also would have helped so you should be fine

    @Saturn, okay, thank you so much! Firstly, I’m so sorry about your turtle :(. My lotl seems to be fine, I haven’t noticed any changes or signs of destress. I do 25% weekly water changes (I have a fully cycled tank), but I will do a 50% change today. I hope that everything turns out fine. Axies are pretty good at showing they are not well or stressed so I’m hoping that I got the rocks out fast enough. Thank you again!

    Can't say if this is what's being referred to, but I had some ceramic tiles in an aquarium for a while. I used a silicone sealant to secure them to the bottom and to each other. It worked well for about 6 months, but eventually a little water got through my imperfect seal and started creating mold problems

    Ooh, tiles of course. I was thinking of those ceramic rings/balls you can buy as filter medium, but tiles make more sense. Thanks
