    I caught it! I caught it!

    Okay, I was watching it in its little crevice and I noticed, at one point, that it was cleaning its "hands" (for lack of a better word) so I thought, well, that ain't no amphipod. So I took the rock out, put it in a low-salinity dip and watched as other little amphipods swam about but waited for the real offender. Then, there he was, in all his so-called glory! Anyhoo, got some pics but since my camera isn't really great at close-ups, these are the best I could do. The claw-like things on it have little 'talons' coming out of the end....any ideas as to what this little creature may be?

    arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Champagne in one hand - strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming

    Here's another...Keep in mind that the colour is a little off. He is a light brownish colour and the back has little dark brownish stripes...

    you cant focus your camera better by putting it on close-up mode?

    It has 7.5x zoom lens but it just gets to blurry.

    You saying I shakey?

    I actually had it sitting on top of the glass and it was very steady. Damn camera! I got it long before I got into this hobby and never counted on having to take such close-up shots. Otherwise it is a fantastic unit!
