    here is Nikon lens

    http://www.adorama.com/NK4028UV.html


    Here is one adapter which you can attach to 18-55 or any kit lens .Result is not bad too.
    You have to deside
    [ame]http://www.amazon.com/Raynox-DCR-250-2-5x-Super-Macro/dp/B000A1SZ2Y[/ame]

    With adapter you will have very short work distance.Probably the lens is better.
    Otherways Nikon 60mm macro is perfect but it is $400-500

    If you like to cover the shipping /round trip /I can send you one 40mm to try .LMK

    How did I miss that guy? I think I was fixated on this one.

    But I think I'll have to get the 40mm next month, at that price I have no excuse not to. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    The flight for Mar. 15 is full, our shipment is being pushed back to Mar. 19. Always some kind of problem dealing with the oversea suppliers.

    Some of the Alisa Shrimp are blue-ish. Cute.


    Some of the Six Band survivors look neat. Super swirly patterns instead of a frosted six band pattern. Might be a male female thing, don't know. Or might be a whole different variety of shrimp; I saw two more hiding under this stick while everyone else was having dinner.

    They are so pretty, but their hiding habit is killing me.

    Whew! Just in time! I was about to send off an emergency email to AlphaProBreeders to express me a bag of Salty Shrimp.



    This was only a fourth of the packing. It was a plastic explosion after I unwrapped it.



    I don't know if this was just some warning on the plastic they used for packing or if it's a warning to me. Anyone read German? I will google it later.



    Here's what really intrigues me. At the bottom of the box there was a single latex glove and an opened bag with a few water droplets in it. What could it have been?!?!? Or do I not want to know?

    Yeah, I can't resist when I saw the picture of the harlequin on the container.

    I have the sulawesi 7.5 as well. Going to start with that and then see if I can slowly transition to tap in another small tank. Btw, my tank that I set up a week ago smells....like ditch water. only have lava rock, gravel, holey rock and some IAL in there. Should I chance it or ditch the entire tank and set up another one and pray it'll be ok by monday?

    Does it have the SS 7.5 in it? Hope it's not what what is making it stink. Haven't mixed up my water yet.

    added it in a week ago and changed the water today. I think its stuff on the rocks that I put in the tank and not the SS 7.5. I just took out the rocks, scrubbed them down again and will do another 90-100% water change tomorrow. Hope it works.

    what is the Holey Rock? If it's the pock marked stuff from the meets that stuff needs to be scrubbed really good and soaked and cleaned again. It comes straight off a beach or something like that (you'd have to get Pepperonihead to talk) so it's covered with LA filth, lol.

    . Sulawesi shrimp and LA filth should not be in the same sentence. Might want to get a clear storage container, a bottle of Stability, SS water, a little aragonite and some new leaves. Then pour some of the bag in the ca ca tank and some in the storage bin as backup.

    Got the rock from some lfs. Scrubbed it, soaked it in bleach solution, then scrubbed it again then soaked it in dechlorinator. I still think there was some plant matter/moss or lichen in some those holes. Should have power washed it but didn't have a pressure washer.

    Lets hope that this third cleaning had done the trick as well as doing a total drain and refill of the tank. :
