    Oceanic 215 with Solaris Build

    The tank is doing very well. I just did a tradeout of some really large corals and plugged in some new frags. Still have my genicanthus angels and they are doing amazing. Maroon clown pair still hanging out in the same green carpet. I'm thinking of switching out my lighting but haven't decided...

    Oceanic 215 with Solaris Build

    Also, thanks for the thumbs up on the anemone video. Last night my husband saw one of our fairy wrasses really flashing and displaying like crazy! He was looking magnificent and I'd never seen him flash so brightly or for so long before. He was darting all over the tank totally flared up. We...

    Oceanic 215 with Solaris Build

    Thanks so much! That price on a brand new Oceanic setup sounds like a good price, depending on the quality of the stand. I think you'll be very happy with the Oceanic 215 if it's the Ultimate. I have no problems with the brace. My urchin is often upside down on it...actually looks pretty...

    Oceanic 215 with Solaris Build

    I had "good" everything with the Solaris fixture. Virtually no heat, low electric bill, "good" color, great growth. But, with the T-5's I feel I have "great" color and growth. My reason for going with the LED's to begin with was that I didn't want to use a chiller and I still don't have to with...

    Oceanic 215 with Solaris Build

    Also, here's a video I shot last night of my anemone spawning. It made a huge mess of the tank...very milky. I ran lots of carbon during the event (I can emphasize how important it is to have carbon on hand for situations like this) and also ran my skimmer a bit wetter than usual to help clean...

    Oceanic 215 with Solaris Build

    Hi Marine Girl, wow I guess it has been a while since I posted on here! The tank is doing very well. I eventually changed from the Solaris light to a 10 bulb ATI Power Module after the company that manufactured the Solaris went out of business. I'm very happy with the new lighting. Here are some...

    Want a new tank?

    Depending on what size and lighting you want, the new Oceanic Biocubes with the 150 MH are really nice. I set one up that we'll be using at the ORCA presentation at the Orlando Science Center next month and even with the glass top it's staying at acceptable temps. Still cycling, but so far it...

    Gotta love the Octopus!

    Wow! I've always found the octopus to be fascinating...this story just adds to my awe of these fantastic creatures! Check out the link below the pic for additional views. http://www.wftv.com/irresistible/21968810/detail.html

    Long Overdue Updated Pics of Tank :)

    Wow, they're looking great, kiddo! I wish I didn't have a tang free tank or I'd want one of those achilles as well. I can't believe how enormous that carpet has gotten! I've had mine for about 12 years now and yours is bigger than mine already! Congrats on a job well done!

    Blurred rim, suggestions welcome!

    Nice Jesse, yours is more "rich" looking. I'm studying the various elements of PS and will try out the things you did in your program. Thanks! teesquare...my main goal was to get info on this so I'd know what to study. Thanks for the heads up...I'll be doing some additional reading on f-stops...

    Blurred rim, suggestions welcome!

    Okay, so here's the original then the same pic with temperature adjusted in Bridge to 20,000 K. I think the adjustment brought out more color depth, so that might be something to play with.

    Blurred rim, suggestions welcome!

    Thanks, all for taking the time to help. Terehz, thanks for the tip regarding Lightroom. I'll definitely look into that until I can master Photoshop...will give me an easier alternative until I learn Photoshop which I already have and I'd love to learn to successfully use it as well. Here's...

    Blurred rim, suggestions welcome!

    Also, may I ask what noise reduction software is? Might the "clarity" setting in Adobe Bridge do the same thing?
