    The forum sent me an alert that I would be in trouble if I didn't post pictures of my reef here...

    Here is my 75g grown under AI 52HD lights.

    I'm no expert, but I think it may have been because the corals looked like they were tossed onto the floor instead of being placed inside the tank. ;)

    being lazy after having a child recently, reef suffered... there are probably a few reasons why, I think the main reason is that I didn't clean my algae scrubber for awhile and the light died at some point. Algae started growing over things and I think it started a chain reaction of death.

    I hear that. I have two kids and they have always kept me busy. Too busy. But your tank looks like it made a nice turn around so that’s a plus.

    Very nice, but please tell us how you get such good pictures of your aquarium. I have a Canon EOS and can't get pictures like that. :)

    uhh.. I just used my samsung galaxy s8 on auto for most of them.. the close ups were on pro mode where I chose manual focus and adjusted the white balance until the colors looked accurate. Also tweaked the shutter time some.

    Do you feed your anemones? They look awesome. Really nice tank.

    I don't target feed, but they do get food when I feed the tank mysis / rods. also the clown will bring in food to them.

    We have AI lights as well. Will have to check our settings. Have 4 on 300gal. 6 foot tank, but my watermelon bt anemone never looks good. He placed himself on the far left side of the tank and I don’t want to injure it moving it. Is secured nicely and always reaching for the natural sunlight on that side of tank from our patio door. His tentacles look short so I target feed krill once a week. My 4 clowns do not host.
    It was small when we got it about silver dollar size. After I feed it, it’s tentacles bubble. What do you think? I asked because yours looks so beautiful and healthy. Our 300gal reef is 6months old but most rocks and coral and fish were moved from a 75 gal reef 3 yrs old and 90gal fish only. Thank you for any suggestions.
