It does, but I’m running 8x ati blue+. Tried the aquarium camera. But that’s more led. Gives me some overly dramatic outcomes though. See.... Hahahaha

I'm not sure there's much you can do with a cell phone and 8 B+ bulbs. My next tank I'm going to do 4 60" B+ and Kessils.

I was able to snap some great pics when had a 4 bulb and kessil setup on my 90. But it was a gnarled mess of shenanigans I was able to hide in a canopy. Not so much for open top, so on to the “clean” look. I had the kessils over Tank, but would have had to have snagged more and figured if spending money, I’d do sumn new. Went to the SB 32”, just not enough spread (still have that and up for sale at moment), then on to the beast t5s.

Added a new fuge light and swapped 2 blue+ bulbs for the purple+. Made me realize how much I needed to clean the algae off the bottom glass. Lol! So I also did that and rearranged a few things.
So far so good.

This is in my experience, if those zoas around the duncan (?) are Lakers, they will kill the duncan(?).

Amazing top down pictures and a great looking tank.
Thank you! Standard camera app on iPhone 8 with Snapseed color adjustments to remove blue. Can’t wait to see what’s to come as I’m starting dosing with a doser rather than ato with kalk.

Always want to be the center of attention. They actually swim to the top and will rub up against my finger and let me pet them if I tap the top of the water. Lol

Lol. Thanks!! It’s been a bumpy road to get here.
You should see the guys tank I got some of these pieces from. The most intense polyp game I’ve ever seen. Trying to not be so clean in the tank and strip too many nutrients at the moment. Rethinking a few things and slowly beginning to implement them. So far so good.
