Its weird with camera's, they seem to pick up the blues heaps more than eyes.

When you look at a tank normally they dont look blue at all - its just the lens on the phone camera, if i use a filter its a lot better.

My son has a DSLR that looks way better (just a lot more work to get the photos on-line)!
It’s probably the white balance setting the phone is using. Some third party camera apps allow you the change the white balance along with other setting and make it more like a dslr.

Few updates from the last couple of weeks.
The Turbo Snails have been spawning - not there are literally hundreds of little snails cruising around the rocks (its funny as i have never bought Turbo Snails, just inherited them on some live rock).

Image below of them spawning - you could see them spraying and everything!

My eldest 3d printed a little hat for the Urchin in the tank (Urchan has been a bit of a menace lately stealing coral frags!)

I added in a frag of Strawberry Shortcake Acro

My Pink Birdsnest is growing really well, however its looking a little white, so maybe i have the lights too bright? Weird as its sitting in around 300 PAR from memory.

Probably hard to tell - i need to stop taking pics at night when the blues are a lot higher!

Finally - it begins.... My RBA has split, i reckon my Urchan was hanging around near it, which may have triggered it. At the moment its on a rock fairly isolated from the coral, but if it starts moving around then i will take one out. I have this Nem for over a year now and this is the first time it has split, so i dont mind if its only once a year.

Love the nems and yours look great. Miss having them for their colour and vibrancy but absolutely hated how they moved around the tank destroying anything getting in their way.

Yeah, these will be evicted pretty quick if they start doing that!
Thankfully staying in their zone at the moment!
