    Thanks Neville...
    Trick was, pic taken when i was doing a large WC... drained almost 50% water, so the surface is close to plants, kept lights on and turned off all filters and wave maker, hence the clear reflection and pearling action, in absolutely still water
    As for corymbosa, its an easy plant, low requirement to grow but will turn red in high light and extra iron. I have been using chelated iron and ADA ECA alternate days

    I totally agree, Unclehenry!! Unfortunately it's only an iPhone 4 shot, taken using digital zoom (because the moss and shrimp were at the back of a 60cm deep tank). Would've been way better if I could've gotten it with the Canon, but I didn't have the opportunity!

    More clarity on the shrimp and in the moss fronds would make it twice as nice... oh well.
