So excited...
why? you ask....
because today my new MP10 will arrive. I am so Pumped! :lol:
Marine Depot Gave me a scare.. i guess they are haveing probs with the UPS tracking #'s. My Package was on a truck for delivery in VA and delivered yesterday. The problem is that i live in FL :huh:

I had a quick photo shoot last night. Still working on the best camera settings for my ISO, aperture value, and shutter speed. I am doing all my settings on manual so i can really find what i like. My Cannon's auto modes just dont capure the colors
This is what i got... not the best, but getting better

Cool pics! I just hooked up my mp 10 a coulpe of days ago. Very quiet! I have it @ 50%. I have not taken the time to program it yet. I have to figure it out which might be difficult because I'm a technophobe!

Hey BTW paint that mag black, it will disappear.

OMG!! that is crazy! I cant drink beer unless its really freaking cold. I find frozen beers once a week =)

The paint is for making your mag float black... so it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb... magfloat camo =)

i received my MP10 yesterday! :happydance: PUMPED!

At first i was shocked at how small it was (the only models i had seen in person were the MP40s)
After setting it up and playing with it for a few hours, i was in love :flower: ... and so was my torch coral :wub:
I have a feeling i will be messing around with it for weeks or even longer.
So far i like short pulse mode and reef crest. I could sit a mess with the short pulse mode all day long... the different speeds and pulse rates make it almost endless. ... not sure if i have it placed in the spot i want and i think i will trying different locations to see what i like the best
thinking back to when i first saw a mp10's price tag- i laughed and said to myself " man, who would buy that?"
Well, after seeing what it can do for my tank i have to say that it's worth every penny!
