    Stop taking 20+ pictures for 1. Get the money shot the first time. ;) And your white balance shouldn't be changing that much unless you're tweaking your light settings all the time.

    If you're a Lightroom user, you can save your previous settings and apply that on import so your post is very minimal.

    dual mp60 added to both side of the 187g. putting gyre pump on hold to see if mp60 does better job. currently mp60s are dialed at 20% at both side while gyre is at 90%. and shows more flow.

    Also got the ma871 for spot on salinity accuracy.

    Apex LDK to complete my apex set.

    Ok, that explains why 2 AP700 would be necessary. And the 3 lights over the frag tank probably works better too

    I think you need 2 more ap700s for the sides

    Nah I need 2 more ap700 for the frag tanks so I can phase out a350 I think they are dying. Lights aren’t bright as it used to be. Or the newer lights are just brighter.
