Outstanding. These look better than some of the photos I've seen in the aquarium magazines. Great work!

Nice shots. Also like the way you put them all on one "white board". Have noticed how you frame most of your shots on other posts as well. Nice work.

Tchuanye, no apologies necessary. It's quite a common mistake. In fact, in one of my all time favorite films, the 1971 Toho epic, "Yog, Monster from Space" (http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/yog_...pace/about.php) the plot involves highly advanced aliens who possess a common cuttlefish, and make it grow to enormous porportions in order to destroy the earth. (This particular species of cuttlefish must be quite rare - what being bipedal and having the ability to live out of water and all...)

However, most people who see this film think it's a giant squid attacking the earth. We know better! It's actually a cuttlefish. (Though to me it looks more like a man in a rubber cuttlefish costume...)



Giant radio-active "cuttlefish" under space alien control, and bent on earthly destruction from Yog, Monster from Space. Note: this is NOT a giant squid. (Though some say it looks more like an actor in a squid... er, cuttlefish costume...)
