View Full Version : Picture taking of corals for sale.

I am noticing lately that a lot of people that are selling their corals are posting pics of them strictly under actinic lighting and not under the regular lights. I think if you are selling corals you should state what lighting you are using for your pics. Photo enhancement shouldn't be used unless you also show them under normal reef lighting as well. I personally don't know any reefer who only uses actinic lights for his reef tank. Just my 2 cents worth but hey whats Christmas without a little "Bah Humbug" now and then.

However.... It is usually obvious when under actinics. An Interested party can always ask the seller to supply a full spectrum.

If it glows under actinic it's probably got some nice colors Anyhow.
