Update pics. Thanks a hundred times over for the great donations! This club is the BEST!
That sunset looks awesome nice size
Nearly lost it but it's come back with great gusto. The older it gets the more rapid the spreading. Always one of my favorites. Thanks for the words.
Glad to see the tank filling in again.
Fantastic macro photos John. Are you sure you don't sell corals? They make me want to give you my credit card.
WOOOOOO HOOOOO!!!! WOW! Killer shots of some Killer coral! Very nice man. Congrats. :bigsmile:
Mike's merletti donations really have come alive. Even the mini-frag with three heads is puffing up like crazy. Now if I can just stop overfeeding!!!!
Thanks for the kudos.
Nice pics & lotsa green! you're really getting you're moneys' worth outta the submergeable cameara.
Thx, Bill. Focus is pretty good on about 50% of them LOL. Never take pictures after cocktails.
Random update pictures. The short version: I moved my 7 strip Reef Brite DYI fixture UP 5 full inches. I was suspicious when some nice zoas refuse to color up and bleached out instead. Other coral has bleached out including all my branching SPS. Now, the color and health of the reef has noticeably improved. The following images show montis that I had almost given up on coming back in full swing. You'll see great poly extension and form as well. A couple images are pretty out of focus but most are OK for viewing full size. The snorkel Panasonic camera continues to perform just fine. It's primitive macro mode catches some surprisingly close shots. The trick is holding my 60 year old hands real steady while submerged in the tank.
Regarding P1010961.jpg image. Is it just the photo or do these two blasto frags look to be exactly the same species and morph? I swear they look like different morphs and possibly species in my tank despite being right next to each other.
I'd say they are happy and healthy twins. The very small 3 head frag, however, appears quite different. My LED's lighten the color from what I've seen under conventional lighting.
Hi everyone. My landlord has evicted my seasoned Elos tank from the condo. Please stay tuned to the BOD for upcoming livestock and hardware. My plan is to donate everything to the club. The BOD staff is assisting me in the immediate tear down. The tanks is several years old and the coral is mature and showcase.
BTW, I'm working for Apple for the time being since my job at Tesla "ran out" last April. I've been keeping a pretty low profile all this year. Best to everyone, keep reefing and take good care of your animals!
Dig that super nova psammacora!
Bummer man! Let me know how I can help...
Just read your last post...bummer to have to move such a tank
Hope everything works out for you, John.
Best wishes John!
sorry to hear that..good luck.
Well, I'm hoping to find new homes for "everything" by the end of the weekend. Joel and Bill came by last night and took custody of several of the older mother colonies. Denzil may be interested in the equipment. I love BAR and have greatly endorsed it's foundation and members over several years. I've learned more by mistake being a BAR member than I ever did "on purpose" as an independent hobbyist. Please stay in touch and I'll post updates to the project. If Denzil decides he'd like my hardware, he may want the live rock as well. Visits to my condo in San Carlos are welcomed as I gather this livestock and hardware up for redistribution. Thanks for your kind reply!
