wow, cool colors

Thanks. I must admit, those last pictures were manipulated in photoshop to get the best colors out. The original photos were really dark. Shooting under LEDs is tough.

the led doesnt seem to blend all that well...lots of white and blue patches...is it from the shimmer?

Yeah, the blues and whites doesn't quite blend together. Yes the shimmer is pretty crazy with LEDs I believe the bulb is 60 degree optics and they're about 12 inches up. That doesn't blend the colors well.

Love the colors in there! Really want an mp10 awaiting hopefully a 10% off sale somewhere soon so i can pick one up and ditch my koralia 1

Thanks. I believe Thanksgiving is coming up. ;) Just keep checking in the sponsor's section here on N-R.

No doubt.
I can't wait to get my hand on a better camera

Man, those high end cameras are expensive! My friend's 5DMKII is $3k and that lense is about $600. I didn't want to break anything. lol It's a nice camera though.

Nice set up! How do you like that light? I think they look cool when hung from above like that.

Thanks. The light is nice. It's well worth it's value. It runs pretty cool and doesn't use that much electricity. The only thing I didn't like about it is how the blues and whites doesn't blend in. I've read that it happens a lot with LEDs. The shimmer effect is pretty cool but not really that good for pictures.

Nice tank

Thank you.

:D No updates really. Just waiting for things to grow. I did however cut up the rainbow yuma. It had spilled it's guts the other day. I suspect that one of the hermit freaked it out and it slimed up. I waited a couple days to see if it would heal. It seemed ok but I noticed the mouth became white and turned into a big hole. I figured if I frag it, it might survive. So far so good. They seem to have closed up the cut today. Keeping my fingers crossed cause it's a nice one.

Thanks. I figured with so little room in my tank, I might as well get things that really catches my eyes.

I'm liking this tank! wink.gif


Thank you!. I'll try to keep updates with pictures. Should be some updates after the holiday sales. :D

I think the rainbow yuma is done for... The 2 halves are just floating around in the cup. They have shrunk to half the size. I'm gonna give it till tomorrow (my weekly WC) to see if there's any signs of life.

Do it! Get them. I prefer palys cause they're a little hardier than zoas IMO.
