Looking forward to great shots of your "Frag" ! Remember, the photo has to have been taken by you, and the subject has to be in your aquarium.

This is a photo contest after all and we're looking for the best photograph. Yes, you can use a post-editing product to better your pictures. In fact, we encourage it.
Few tips:
using a macro lense or shooting close to get good magnification
utilizing extension tubes if it helps.
Tripod or securing your camera to get sharper shots
experiment with front shots or top down to get different perspectives

Too bad entrants have to have facebook to win the prize. I have two tanks full of frags but I no longer enter the contests because I refuse to use facebook so I can't win the prize. I know I'm a whiner, carry on.
You can still participate and win and u get the potm winner badge and bragging rights! Just not the prize

Garf bonsai? This was next on my must have list until @billyocean dropped that bomb 4 posts up.
So that’s actually the BC Quizzler Stag. My halides are off in the pic so the blue/uv spectrum in the LEDs really throw the color off.
