Ain't got no job, ain't got no money, ain't got no frags... but I did trade some junk for an old dslr. Frag tank still needs even more fish or nutrients in it, but main tank is chugging along nicely.

In case anyone was wondering if you can get rid of clove polyps with a three month blackout and re-curing in a rubbermaid tub... you cant. I will accept them, although it appears their numbers stay down with lower nutrients, so we'll see how regular maintenance works out.

Just did auto settings on camera and a quick auto balance on pc and it looks pretty good already. Leds are on a gradual sunrise/sunset so I'd say this is about 6500-8000k white for these.




Sunset Millie from someone here, FlamesFan I think?

Maricultured icefire

It came with a macro lens so I can fart around with getting better focus shots as I go, and maybe some extreme mode led blues

Wow that looks really nice. Show us more!

Getting better, some fluorescent colors seem like they overexpose even after running it through filters. Must be a setting on the camera (or operator), feels like the usual problems taking pics under our bluey lights. Tried some 10k-ish pics.

Nice tank! Also the photography skills are nothing to complain about:lol:

Wow, looking real nice! Cant wait to see it again in person.

Tank's doing pretty good, only really been struggling with too low of nutrients. Added some chromis and anthias for a bump and began to occasionally dose KNO3. Pale LPS and receding chalice prompted me to do so. LEDs are up to about 60% and camera work is mostly hit or miss with settings, new pics are around 12-15kish

Been a year since the move and things are pretty decent. Always seem to struggle with one or two unhappy corals but I guess that's just how it goes. Only a dozen or so spots left and I'll just let 'er buck.

Some LPS

Clam 'n SPS

More SPS

Tank looks great.

Question about your firefish...
How many do you have in there and how long have you had them for?

Goomba 08-14-2019 12:12 PM

I originally got a few red ones, but now I'm convinced they will fight til there's just a pair left. So I have just two reds and two purples and they seem fine and stress free with that.
