    Ah man that’s awful - I’ve seen velvet destroy a fish in QT and I don’t want to ever see it again (the most horribly parasite).

    A trio of flames direct from a collector sounds amazing - I’ve been after a pair for ages now.

    It was an awesome connection, and sad he died as a result of collecting more of them.

    what camera and filters are you using to take pictures. I can't get anything near what you are getting?

    This tank was an inspiration for me as is his frag tank. In fact I set my scape up based on the two island Pukani rock from this tank. Like Chris, I also had an issue that caused me to have to drain and rehouse my livestock. I wasn't as far along but it was devastating but I'm now focused on 2.0. This hobby has such ups and downs but its good to have a long view. In the end it has brought me more good times than bad.

    Hey Gordon,

    Almost all of the photos from this thread were taken with a Canon 5D Mark II body. I'm shooting with a Canon 5D Mark IV these days with the Canon 100mm f2.8L macro. No filters, except when doing fluorescent-only photos.

    Good equipment is a necessary but insufficient condition for getting great photos; the remainder is technique, editing, and luck (which are much cheaper!)

    Your tank is the inspiration for me to get back into the hobby. We just built a house and I have the green light to go ahead and get my large tank. My choices are a Reefer 625 or 750 (just depends what wall we decide to put it on) or my LFS carries a line of “Pro Clear Aquatics”, their largest rimless is roughly 59x20x20 for around $1500. I love the fact that the back of your tank is clear and the Pro Clear’s back is also clear and the overflow is in the corner. Here’s a few pics of it at the store, it’s VERY tempting as I’d have more wiggle room for Radeons, MP40’s, etc...

    The biggest thing I want to do is keep with the minimalistic scape, I want to try my hardest to recreate what you have there. It’s gorgeous!
