Thanks for viewing Barracuba. Wish someday I canalso contribute to your post with sth. larger, more beautiful and more dangerous!! :-)

As for the D40x,it'ssuch acompact and lightweight camera that I wouldn't consider buying a P&S!! Besides, straight from the camera jpegs, without any in camera increse, arereally sharpwith the 18-55 kit lens! Ihave beenused tometering relying onthe center weightedaverage,butthis little babyinveriably seem to understand what I'm aftereven better thanks to its 3D matrixmetering!!Itsflash unit lets you shootinvariably great pictures without white washing the subject!!D40xreally yieldsvivid colours (and somewhat extra pinkness to portraits, which might seem complimenting at first!)Still, I'd prefer my main camera, K10D, for itscolour department and low light photography thanks to its effective SR and extra weight for stability. Ah, its ease of use thanks to dedicated buttons and TAV mode (Shutter & Aperture priority letting the camera use the apropriate ISO from a selected range)is another story of course ;) I might be posting some comperative pictures soon...

Thanks for your interest, Phil.Having two of them in my aquarium,I can say that they are the most 'hyperactive' guys of the bunch :-)

Dear musket, thanks fordropping in!

This is in fact one of the most peaceful species which you can safely feed in a mixed aquariumalong with themost vulnerableandpompousones : )

However you're right to warn againist some: I remember once managing to have my finger bitten by a piranha some thousands miles away from the Amazon :G

good shot, Bahadir! You've got nice Barracuda there! Am I wrong or it's salt water aquairum? Or there are barracuda specieis which leave in fresh water too?

bahadir Jan 24, 2008 5:34 PM

That's a fresh water aquarium I have. I'd also like to have a salt water aquarium!Wellmine's a peaceful pangasius only : ) But I know a predatory shark species whichis fed in fresh water aquariums!
