  3. My first RedSea Max e260!, Jan 22, 2019
  4. A$AP-Reefer


    thanks for the great info! question?! the dims in the tank are 18" if im correct due to the filtration chamber connected is about 4"+ correct? I was half tired when I pulled the trigger on this. I wasn't thinking about the footprint... go figure, but its something I have never used before and always wanted a redsea tank.. so I went with it, I love big footprints cause it give me room to build a crazy aquascape since my coral crazy self is always looking for the next best thing to buy! #AllMyMoneyGoesToCoral ! but besides that thank you for letting me know about the skimmer part! I tried to research this tank but seems as if I can barely find any info on it! which sucks.. but im gonna need to know what to set my lights to.. im probably gonna end up a SPS/ZOA dom tank.. but mainly zoas and a few LPS at first to get the tank started out. I got 2 20lb bags of carib-sea live figi pink since I always used to use that. think that would be enough ! I don't like insanely deep sandbeds.

    Tristian's Reef: (2019) - 350g Reef Update - Coral Eye Candy!


    Hey everyone I was overdue a reef update. Originally I was going to do one before New Years but life got in the way.

    This year I will be trying to get 1 new video out a week and I will also be doing more ReefTech videos since those were really popular last year.

    Thank You EVERYONE for all the support this past year. Its been an amazing Journey as a youtube creator and fellow reefer. I look forward to creating new original content this year.

  9. Little something for mobile phone photography, Oct 23, 2018
  10. -SHRiMPar0306_

    Hey I just thought this was pretty useful for people like me who live by #allmymoneygoestocoral and is not buying a sweet camera we promised ourselves we will purchase one day.
    This is also for people who loves to show off like @unsung.sung on Instagram.
    We know darn well that our mobile screen is completely washed with blue when we try to take a picture of our oh so beautiful coral under actinics.
    I use two things to make the blues less blue and so people can actually see the coral’s fluorescent colors.
    The two things are Instagram and something called “Blur and Mosaic”
    I like have my photos look dark to make the subject stand out more. This is also why people use black background for reef tanks.
    Here are some successful photos using iphoneX (no you don’t need such expensive phone to take decent pictures because I only see slight difference between my upgrade from Iphone6+*), Instagram filters + built in adjustment tools, and the Blur App.



    IMPORTANT NOTE NO.1: GO TO INSTAGRAM > PROFILE > SETTINGS > ORIGINAL PHOTOS > SAVE ORIGINAL PHOTOS. YOU WANT THIS TO BE ON!

    Take a picture of the coral and it’ll be great if it was a close up pic without zoom.



    Go to Instagram and go to the bottom center button to choose your desired photo.
    I like to first adjust the brightness a bit, turn up the LUX and use the LOFI filter (tap again to adjust*)

    IMPORTANT NOTE NO.2: IF YOU CANNOT FIND THE FILTERS - POST BUTTON > SELECT IMAGE > SWIPE ALL THE WAY RIGHT UNTIL YOU SEE THE MANAGE BUTTON > CHECK ALL FILTERS ON!
    Then you go to the STRUCTURE and SHARPEN and turn it up to make the subject stand out a bit.
    After all that you play around with the HIGHLIGHT and SHADOWS to make the coral look more appealing.
    Then you press SHARE which will save the photo you just edited to your phone’s camera roll or photos app.
    Please delete that photo right after it is done posting public because not a lot of people follow you to see a blue screen :)



    Nice, very good still blue washed photo! Ok now go back to the post button and choose the photo you just edited.

    ALL FUTURE ADJUSTMENTS ARE STACKING ON TOP OF PREVIOUSLY EDITED PHOTOS!

    You may adjust the LUX again to make the coral look more appealing.
    Now choose the PERPETUA filter (tap again to adjust*) to get rid of that nasty nasty blue that’s covering your coral.
    You may play around all the adjustment tools until you get the desired photo.



    Then repeat over and over and over... (even one repeat is just fine*)

    Yay now this post just made you use 5min :)
    Now go to BLUR AND MOSAIC APP (there are probably better applications and tools to blur out background but I’m too lazy to try so I just use this one since it gets the job done*), tap on the right circle button and choose desired edited photo.
    I like to use the first blurring tool, choose the second or first intensity, and get the largest size to blur out the whole picture.
    Then grab the eraser tool with smallest size and start erasing the blur from your coral only. You may use two fingers with spread motion to zoom for easier erasing. There is undo button and redo so you won’t cry.
    Now save your blurred pic to your camera roll and that is all.



    I like to go back to Instagram and do more refining.



    Aaaaaannnddd yea that is all. Have fun with this and you will surely improve. Thank you for your 10min.
