    I was trying to remember which member had the tank journal with the gold hammer! It was you!

    Amazing tank with probably the best looking corals in the club (that I've seen). What camera are you using and are you doing any post-processing to deal with the color balance issues?

    Yes it was me with gold hammer and orange hammer but unfortunately I lost them both due to an imbalance of parameters .

    Thanks for the compliment

    Is this shades of fall?!
    jeez, i've been looking for something like this. I'd be very interested in a small frag!!

    I really appreciate the dual pics you took. It really helps with putting together the true color of your tank in my mind.
    How do you prevent glare & reflection from your lights when you take a top down picture?

    It started as a pink lemonaid but after bleaching out and making a come back under led lights it now has the shades of fall look (although I did have both of those acros at one time so it just might be the shades of fall vs pink lemonaid).

    I use a look down camera box that another reefer made a while back. Also use the tube look down camera enclosure by AVAST

    As soon as I can figure when the next meeting that I can attend , I would be more than happy to bring you a frag

    FYI Regional swap on September 12. We'll be incorporating bonus rounds and I'm sure that coral would qualify.

    That's totally different than how my pink lemonade looks. Maybe I actually have something else!

    Good info on the box. Maybe I should get one.
