I snapped some really quick pic's the other night, right after I did a bunch of scraping and mucking up the water.... So yeah they suck but oh well. They turned out a lot more blue than what it looks like in person. I had my settings wrong in my camera but I think I have them set now so I will get more pic's tonight and post them up.

The tank is a standard 75g 4' tank. I have a Vortech MP20 and a Koralia 1050 in the tank for circulation. I have a 6 bulb T5 DIY setup for lighting. And the skimmer is a Reef Octopus NW150 modded by Luke to pull twice the air as stock.

Back side of the tank.

Some nice stuff man.. if you took a little time out and learn how to white balance the pictures they would look a lot better. There is a program called "GIMP" I used to use that auto WB photos.. its freeware so it's easy get and use. Try it out Smile

Yeah I had it set correctly then I added 2 more blue bulbs to the mix and it all went south on me. I was messing with it the other night trying the PVC in tank method and couldn't get it set right. Then I took a pic of my stand and it came out perfect so I think I have it on the right track now.

^usually cameras have a hard time with our lighting. Even my SX20IS has a floro light and an aquarium setting for balance.. and neither of them can capture my T5 or LED system... in a standard 65-10k PC setup sure.. but higher lighting? I usually have to hit up CS4.

All I did was started taking shots of things with my preset white balance setting. I found that snapping my wood stand which is no where near white gives me the best pic's in my tank. Now outside the tank is a different story and I need to change it back and fourth to get good pic's.

So you wood balanced? Sounds like a male stripper trick you have to pay a lot extra for.
