Thanks !
Colors still has to be better though. Green and pink are almost at their best, but red and blue tints very week (brownish).

Looks good. I'm convinced more than half(if not way more) of pictures we see are photoshop or under unreal light.

I like to see the corals pics with all the tank (white) lights on along with the blues. I will say that one can get some spectacular photos with just the blues on!!!!

Now I moved stuff to new tank. Light is much more powerful. I thing new pictures will be even better color-vise. At least they looks better to the eye.
I use photoshop to adjust exposure , crop and resize . Sometimes white balance needs to be adjusted also as LEDs makes pictures too blue on camera.

Kerry, those are pictures under all lights on. whites 100% blues 100%. I used blue with white 2:1. For new tank I added 2 reds, 2 greens, 4 violets. Whites are 50/50 CW with NW. Ill try to make few shots for comparison.


P.S. Just looked over pictures once more and they are not White Balance adjusted. Looks a bit too blue than in real life.

Just took 1 special picture for sklywag. Croped and resized. Not even opened PS. Enjoy. (sorry for slightly off focus )

For Kerrys information : lights where at sunset phase. White 50% Blue 65%

Those didnt look like all blue. You know when they are under all blue because the sand, rocks, and lighter color objects are all blue as well. I run less blue then most folks do, I run about 20-25% blues.

Blue acro today looks unhappy. Probably alkalinity was elevated too fast.

Really nothing unusual.

Nice. I wasn't insinuating(?) you used too much blue or photoshopped. But I think you know I wasn't.

I like that. Just run an ATS. Nothing unusual. Well not here anyway. Any other site it would be unusual.

Great shots. Love frogspawn. That beauty of a coral is what got me into reef keeping and pictures like that are the reason.

Kotlec, what type of lights are you using?

kotlec

I have DIY leds. This fixture made of many different colors of leds: warm , neutral, cool whites. Royal blues , cyano, red, green and pink . Not royal blue+ cool white like many others.
