    Oh I figured they were taken with some "mobile" device, apparently those little films you can buy you simply hold in front (or tape it) to the camera and it gets rid of that blue.

    Yeah Randy posted an Amazon link early on, then a few posts later shows before/after pictures, it's actually quite impressive.

    Looks like your QT setup is similar to mine. How did your leopards do in QT?

    They did fine as long as they had sand. They love their pods

    Yeah, considering the cost of a good camera that does the white balancing and/or the software to do it, $7-8 for a filter you can tape on the end of your phone or something is not a really cost prohibitive :D

    Got this coral as an unknown and it did nothing for the longest time. I put it up towards the top and it just took off BDDBA71C-1A17-41DF-A09C-A4BF1702C44E.png

    What’s been your experience with rainbow chalices? I have a tiny chip of one and have been trying to accelerate growth. What does yours like in terms of light, flow, food?

    Reef-Roids is great stuff for a lot of corals, if not all.

    Very nice corals Bob, did you just glue the original frags to the back panel? If so you did a wonderful job.

    Very nice, I forgot who Karson and Joe sold my old tank to. Looks like the tank is doing very well.
