Here are a few pictures of Aiptasia that I took today.
Surface of the tentacle at 400x
I was just about to suggest a few pests. How about planaria red flat worms, and AEFW? Asterina stars, underside and the scales on the top? Monti eating nudis?
Not saying you have access to these at the moment, but might get them from others to photograph? Great shots.
Okay. I'll try to get a hold of a few pests.
Thanks for these nice pictures! It is nice to see them up close and personal
Red bugs are fairly popular these days, too bad I don't have them anymore, can not provide a sample.
Those pictures are so cool; what would be really interesting is if you magnified a water sample to see what animals are in it.
Thanks! I'll give it a try, but I don't think my microscope is powerful enough, so, I probably wont see a whole lot.

Reef Nutrition Phyto Feast(the dead one)
Reef Nutrition Roti-Feast
Some kind of sand flea/pod thing. It almost looks like a Trilobite. lol
Upside-down at 40x
Upside-down at 100x(this is the but area lol)
Right-side up at 40x
Looks like sea lice.
Nice microscope pics!
Try some sediment - there's lots of creatures (called meiofauna) that live between the sand grains.
I looked at some MB7 and here are the results.
40x - cant see a thing
100x - you can see specs of something, but too small to take pictures.
400x - you can see small "dots"
These were the best pictures I could do.
Here are a few pictures of a Red Flatworm. I got these from a local.
Mind sharing your setup?
I currently have a 28 gallon HQI photosynthetic tank that pretty much just finished its cycle and I'll add my first tester coral later this/next week. I also have another 28 gallon nano that I'm going to set up next month if all goes well.
He might have been talking about your microscope. (maybe)
Just a guess :bigsmile:
Or, I guess it could be Gisele Bundchen's set up he was asking about.
Microscope setup please.
The Microscope I have is the one that sells for $240. I'm not using any kind of camera adapter. I just look through the Ocular lens with the camera and take the pictures.
