With all the issues I can't believe you still got Fox face. If that was my fish I would have told him, her, them, it , too go back to your country........haha being a son of immigrants, of course to a person I don't say that don't even think it.

But the fish I don't care

It could well be coming out, I have to be very careful doing anything in the tank, if it spooks whilst my hand is doing something it might not end well for me!

Car still at the pound, I have all the documents I could muster and hopefully the last one is in the car. I will go over tomorrow.
Whilst on the phone to the insurance company I got put through to their pet insurance section, Charlie passed 18 months ago but I had been paying still as they never got the cancellation, they are going to refund me about £650! :)
I can feel a coral treat coming! ;)

The fox face is slowly getting more chilled and is out and about more. :)
The first two pics are in a patch of sunlight, it shows the pink better, because I shoot most fish pics from the desk end I am shoot their low light sides most of the time as in the last two pics. ;)

My skimmer threw a hissy fit over night and flushed 5 days of dry skimmate back in to the tank, that will set me back about 2 or 3 weeks, I need a sensor on the cup to stop that happening again
In the past I was never really worried about a little skimate overflowing from my collection cup but now that I have a float switch in my skimmer I must say I love it! I can even set a audible warning that goes off when it’s full.

I want to be able to take pics like you when I get my tank up and running again. I checked out the link to the lens you use. I found it on several websites across the pond. They are $650. I can't bring myself to spend that much right now so I think I will get a used lens before the recent update. Essentially it's still the same model just with some fancy upgrades. I found several in the $175-$225 range.

Decent equipment doesn't come cheap but it is my companion hobby and have had 2 of the lenses for years, I swapped a lens that was too fish eyed for tank pics for the Nikon zoom, the autofocus doesn't work, I would never have paid what he did for it new it just means I can't really use it for fish pics. ;)

I need to get this identified, I have a mate who described a monti to me and I said no I didn't have it.
I have been watching this colour up at the active tips, a yellowish colour.
What threw me was he said bright green polyps.
It was under an xr 15 in the shop and had bright green polyps, I forgot! ;)

The third one down is my favorite. Gotta love the two photo bombers!

@Matt Carden - Good camera equipment, like a number of other hobbies, can cost big dinero. It's like tools though as once you take the hit for something good it's a done deal and you have it for life.

Below is a very good link with some great info. The OP, as well as a number of other contributors, are really fantastic photogs. It may give you some ideas about additional photo gear.

The one I linked to is the same Tamron but without theVC (vibration control) and the waterproofing. it's just used. As long as I buy through PayPal and it says in the discription that there are no scratches on the glass I should be good.
