Jaw dropping! wow man, very inspiring stuff you have here.... not only for the way your system looks but also your camera work. I have 2 DSLR granted they are not top notch but in my hands they really are a waste! Cannon Rebel XTI and a Nikon 50D i cnat remember exact name but i can never ever get great pics like this. I do understand however that you have a nice macro lense, but my problme is focusing, and the colors... alway look washed out. I dont want to disturb your thread with my pictures but, anyways amazing buddy.... i will have to go back to your frist post to see a list of equpment also looks like i might want to go back and see if i need to start dosing a bit more as a lot of my corals are starting to get the size of yours!!!

Thanks for sharing made the day in the office calmer for me!

Thanks for the compliments PurpleMonster!!!!

as per the pictures in the first page, yes a macro lense was use in the close up shots, as per the top down shots of the corals on the second page a standard lense was used, as you can see it's almost comparable. if your pictures looked washed out, i recommend trying to under expose your shots. and if you have problem with focusing try setting your ISO at about 400 to 800, a tripod goes a long way also.

Would love to see how you have your returns set-up, I am planing a peninsula tank myself and had not thought of this option to get more flow to the other side of the tank.

Unfortunately I dont have any clear picture of the return, but i ran my return thru the canopy and the way to the other side. if you want to do this you'll have to remember to calculate for extra run/flow. I used a Poseidon PS4 for the extra flow. hope that helps and good luck with your future build.

Thanks Kataro!!! Canon 50D with 100mm Macro for the most part. for the top down shots of the SPS 18 to 200mm. contrary to popular believe a standard lense can provide just as great of an image as a macro lense.
