Well we have you to thank then Justin! I like it a lot. Keeps me from running all over my fish room looking for a syringe.

right, a real nice way to organize the plethora of syringes we need for testing.

Got my 2nd SBREEF Actinic bar in yesterday. I'm very pleased with the results. I was afraid having two actinic bars would make the tank too blue but since I run a whiter combo of T5 bulbs, it worked perfect to keep me around a 12k-14k spectrum but with a ton of pop from the actinic bars.

The perfect balance of pop without being overly blue for me!

Thanks! Its actually my phone! LG V20, gives me options to adjust white balance, ISO, and shutter speed. I then post-process with an app on my phone to match what I see in real life as best as I can.

This week I'll be hopefully getting a Nikon D5300 and a Tamron 90mm macro lens for some real fun!

I know what you mean. I have two girls who were once that small.
My older daugjter’s first word was ‘ish’. She didn’t quite have the ‘f’ sound down yet..

Maybe shoot for something easier like "acro" or "mag" and teach the rest of it later in so he can impress his friends at preschool

I was cleaning the tank and snapped some top-downs of the right side of the tank while I was at it.

Top down shots of the right side of the tank. I haven't filled this side out as much yet. I have some of my colonies and frags still waiting in the frag tank ready to be glued but just need some free time and inspiration to get it done. The inspiration is the big part as I don't just want to plop down frags but really think about their placement.

I totally agree. Those are the two most uniquely stunning pieces I would say in the tank. Sure, a pretty acro here and there but gold torches and Sunbursts almost look fake in a reef tank.

I have yet to have the opportunity to see a sunburst in real life. I'm contemplating adding a nem tank to my system. Keep the pictures coming.

Oh, it'll blow your mind. I'm not even an anemone guy but when I walked into Elite Reefs in Denver, I saw this crazy gorgeous thing across the room and it drew me closer to it. When I got there, my retinas were permanently burned with an image of a Colorado Sunburst on them and I knew I had to buy it.

Great tank. It's an inspiration. Nice camera set up too.

Thanks Topjimmy! I'm hoping my camera game gets better with time! Maybe it'll distract me enough to leave the tank alone!
