We have a three day weekend too (Memorial Day)! 🙌

 

Yup, I think it is, aka purple ribbon (Pterogorgia anceps).

They found that shorter days and weeks led to essentially no drop in job performance and productivity lol, you know the opposite of what we're doing in the states.

I used to think WFH would adversely affect your productivity and performance as well, but been doing so for awhile now and am actually more productive WFH.

Tank looks great! Simple and beautiful 🙂 It is relaxing on the eyeballs and calming... nice break from many of our tanks that look like blacklight posters. 

 

What light is that? Very clean looking.

Thanks!  It's actually freshwater planted tank lights - Twinstar 450E II.  Pretty bright (have it actually dimmed halfway down) but obviously less blue than reef lights.

Still trying to figure out how to capture a good shot of these tiny gobies.  Not the clearest, but tonight's attempt.

Not every week, just this week because of Holidays. 😉 Normally I only have a 2 day weekend..

That's about as close as you can get. Unless you put the camera in the tank. Nice looking fish.

What a cute little bugger.

In case you're curious about the different workweeks and days be trialed; Japan, New Zealand, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, and a few other places have trialed various things.

 

Also I'm really not certain what you're going for, both of those shots are perfect lol.

I need to be able to see my reflection in his eyeball.  😄

 

A macro lens is definitely on my wishlist.  Just gotta psychologically prepare myself for the $$$$.

And then to capture something that small and mobile you'll just have to buy a stabilized tripod =p
