Ain't got no job, ain't got no money, ain't got no frags... but I did trade some junk for an old dslr. Frag tank still needs even more fish or nutrients in it, but main tank is chugging along nicely.

In case anyone was wondering if you can get rid of clove polyps with a three month blackout and re-curing in a rubbermaid tub... you cant. I will accept them, although it appears their numbers stay down with lower nutrients, so we'll see how regular maintenance works out.

Just did auto settings on camera and a quick auto balance on pc and it looks pretty good already. Leds are on a gradual sunrise/sunset so I'd say this is about 6500-8000k white for these.

Sunset Millie from someone here, FlamesFan I think?

It came with a macro lens so I can fart around with getting better focus shots as I go, and maybe some extreme mode led blues

Getting better, some fluorescent colors seem like they overexpose even after running it through filters. Must be a setting on the camera (or operator), feels like the usual problems taking pics under our bluey lights. Tried some 10k-ish pics.

Tank's doing pretty good, only really been struggling with too low of nutrients. Added some chromis and anthias for a bump and began to occasionally dose KNO3. Pale LPS and receding chalice prompted me to do so. LEDs are up to about 60% and camera work is mostly hit or miss with settings, new pics are around 12-15kish

Been a year since the move and things are pretty decent. Always seem to struggle with one or two unhappy corals but I guess that's just how it goes. Only a dozen or so spots left and I'll just let 'er buck.

Tank looks great.

Question about your firefish...
How many do you have in there and how long have you had them for?

I originally got a few red ones, but now I'm convinced they will fight til there's just a pair left. So I have just two reds and two purples and they seem fine and stress free with that.
