    Beautiful photos! I especially love the shots of the fish with amazing colors. Which camera are you using?

    Yup... It's about time.. You could have taken some better pictures when you were here on Saturday. Anyway, here are more pictures of the fishes and corals in the tank.

    I decided to take a couple of pictures of my tank. I added some corals from Ian and picked up a big clam. The scape still needs work.

    Looking good!
    Are you using a Macro to take your pictures? Which one?

    Most of the close up pictures I used a macro lens. I have the nikon 105mm but some of the pictures I used nikon 17-55mm. The last two pictures I used the nikon 35mm.

    Looking good how are you liking the two MP40W pointing right at each other? I have the same exact tank dimensions just a glass Oceanic one. I should have just saw your thread cause I pretty much did the same equipment list haha.

    I moved one of the MP40W down more and the other a little higher. they are not quiet pointing straight at each other. It works well for me.

    Ok.. let me take out my camera. Just came back from our 5th grade program, "I'm going to college!" We took over 110 5th graders to UC Berkeley for a day and let them take some classes taught by our staff. It was a long and tiring day! Stay tune for pictures later on tonight.
