Well, I never have entered a photo contest so I may as well make this my first. It pretty easy to see that this one's a top down....lol it from well above the surface of my 20 gallon. The most visible things are my perc clown, my pink poci colony and my mushroom leather. I don't remember the name of the camera I used, its busted now....sitting in saltwater for too long as it was in a bag with one of my fish bags....oops! :neutral:

That's because he figured I wasn't looking at him so he didn't need to suck it all in and look starved :lol:

Nothing really, other than a few zeovit additives from time to time and I do use RBS. But yellow has always done well in my tank, and that mille has always been super yellow, especially from top down. Thanks!

similar to brickwood's, a couple the wife took a bit back. When I came across them on the camera thought they were pretty cool.
