Lies! Just saw the 3 others you have on YouTube! =p What ever happened to that awesome green bubble coral?

 

But seriously, this "first"/last video is VERY well done and I watched it 3 times. =) I've always loved the incredible photos you took. and even stole one for use on my desktop background.

 

By the way, since I stumbled onto this site about a month ago, EL Fab's guide and your amazing pico tank inspired me to start a 4g pico. I've had a 29g tank about 15 years ago. So I have some experience and know this would be challenging and fun!

 

I don't expect mine to ever look as great as yours, but if I get 1/2 way there, I'll be happy. =)

HAHA you're right. I should say the first official video then. The green bubble was too big so I had to take it out and sold.

 

I am so honor for using my photo as desktop background. Base on your experience, I bet you will definitely do it and your tank will look a lot better than mine.

 

 

Nice!

 

Thank you andrewquest

This tan/orange coral (is it an acan colony?) is amazing. Stunning!

How long did it take to grow this big btw, and from what original purchase size (# polyps)?

Just great inspiration for all of us. Job well done.

 

I know you have answered this before, but out of laziness, could you give me your camera details again?

 

Thanks for all the awesome photos and video, just great stuff.

Dude, you take the sickest photos! Amazing! What type of camera and lens are you using again? You probably said it before lol... I might have to just go back and re-read everything for fun. =)

Those are some serious cameras! One of these days, I'll have to move into the world of DSLRs. For now, my trusty Canon PowerShot SD800 IS with whopping 7.1 mega pix will do. hehe

 

edit: looks like i was wrong... i can't get any pics under just blue/actinic to show the green fluorescent colors! blah.

The birdnest did not die because of the algae. It died because something went wrong with the tank earlier which I still don't know the cause. I don't think algae can kill corals. I think the algae will take over after corals die.

I still have to learn a lot. I think I did not use the camera to its full potential. There are a lot more techniques that I still have to learn. I think it is not the camera that produce good photos. It is the one behind it. I have seen many photos that were taken by point and shoot camera. They looked a lot better than mine.
