I've been using Flickr, have images not been working for you?
Images are showing fine. They look nice and sharp so I was curious if you were hosting the images somewhere else. I have been thinking about using flickr. Are you using flickr’s free account and embedding the images?

I can just copy the images from Flickr and paste them over! Once you upload a certain amount of images, Flickr makes you switch to a paid account. But I've been enjoying using their services for the past 5 years.

@Legendary Corals - I didn't get a chance to jump on the recent sale . Wondering what are some of the variants you got that develop large polyps in high light and flow . Think its time to make me move slowly towards zoas in acro tank .

Regards,
Abhishek

Hmm, I do have a few in mind but gathering all of the morphs that are large and get long lashes sounds like a good group shot idea! I'll see if I have time to make that photo happen.

Are you using any gel filters?
No sir, gel filters are a good way to filter out the blue LEDs but they make everything much more orange. They're great for taking photos with your phone, but with a DSLR using a custom white balance is much better. I have my settings on the first post, but if you have any questions I'd be more than happy to help out!

I see a awesome pack right here in this picture. These all available?
Why yes, I do have frags of each available.

Thanks! Ya that’s what I was kinda thinking, gel filters are mostly for phone cameras. I’ll have to get my wife’s camera out and practice messing with the white balance.

Taking photos is a hobby on it's own! When you do it's a bit of a learning curve but you'll be very surprised at how well they'll turn out.

If you can share names of the Zoas with large polyps and long lashes and can take to high lighting and flow , please share . I can always look at them when you put up the WYSIWYG pics when you put them up

Just updated the site with about 150 WYSIWYG frags! For big polyps and long lashes, these are the ones on the update that fulfill your criteria. Most zoas get larger under lower light in my experience, but these should do well and tend to have longer lashes:

We're not sure which variant of "Bowser/ Candy Apple" this one is, but we're in the love with the color schemes! Those vibrant green tips and yellow speckling across the face really make them stand out.
