    Just got a 4' Actinic Reefbrite installed today from Neptune. Thing is amazing. I took a few photos with just the Reefbrites and then decided to play around with my macro lens. I'm now running the Reefbrite + 3 Powerbrites for my actinic supplementation. Gonna be selling off the T5 retrofit kit that I used to use. Some photos to share:

    I think I managed to kill 4 sunset frags before finally succeeding with this one. (Various tank crashed and nudis, etc...) This one has kept its color and grown a ton since I picked it up.

    Some plate corals. Purple base, orange mouth and rim, green tentacles. Same plate like Cerissa has in her little tank at Neptune.

    My first plate coral, orange with yellow tentacles.

    My largest and possibly favorite plate. Thanks Robert for the score! This guy is like a flourescent neon traffic light on the bottom of my tank.

    Macro of my gold torch colony. One of my favorite pieces. Mesmerizing under the Reefbrites. Probably 10 heads total.

    Colony of Tyree Pink Elephant Palys. I found these things grow like crazy.

    Orange/Gold Rhodactis mushrooms. Amazing under the reefbrites.

    Rainbow Acan "Maxima" (Under Reefbrites only...) I know this isn't likely a real 'maxima'.... anyone have an ID on him?

    Wow Jason! Your tank looks so amazing!!! The colors and textures is really nice well balanced. That mantis is really gnarley too. Heard they're one of the smartest crustacean in the world.....next to me. Thanks for sharing the the beauties with us man!

    I think we need a battle of the wits to see who's the top crustacean :p

    Zoiberg can do that, and he can blow bubbles :)

    He can breath underwater, can you do that :p
