    I have three Kessil A360WE and four T5 retrofits on my 72” tank. The Kessils ramp up and down but I usually take pictures at 80% intensity and 50% color. The T5 bulbs are 2x ATI Blue Plus, 1x KZ Fiji Purple and 1x KZ Coral Light II. I don’t know the actual Kelvin amount.

    I set the WB at max, which I believe is 10k on my camera. I tried using the feature to set a custom white balance on my D7000 but it gives me an error message under this lighting. It worked when I had only T5 lights. I assume it has issues with LED lighting.

    This will look great if you ramp up the white balance in Lightroom. You might need to brighten it a little as well.

    That is after WB, could have brightened it up more. Thank you for your input again, will post some pics after I get some thru lightroom.

    Alright, these are my next level pics. Still have trouble with certain corals/colors but defiantly better. Thanks for the input BigJim, still have a lot to learn about settings. was like oh I'll put the f stop at 16...well that made them almost blank pics. Didn't know that affected the light into the lens

    Looks great. I think you have it figured out. You should probably start a separate thread now. We have gotten a little off topic on this one. This would be a good time for a tank thread if you do not have one yet.

    I'm an Acan guy. I Love this pic. I'm going to start learning how to take better pics on my Canon 5d MKII I have a EF 24-105mm USM Macro. Are you familiar with that lens?

    I am pretty good at photography, but I don't have a ton of experience with different cameras and lenses. You may want to start a thread looking for feedback so some of the pro photographers here can chime in. I know that lens does not have a 1:1 reproduction ratio, so you will not be able to get as close as a "true" macro lens. You can make up for that to some extent with extension tubes. You can probably get better advice if you start a thread.
