I've got some beautiful SPS' but I have a heck of a time taking pictures of them. Did you do anything special to take that shot? Camera on your phone? I have a yellow lense filter but I ruins the color of corals :(
Hi thank you for the compliments. I use an iPhone X straight forward pics. No editing. I turn off all my power heads and I like to use a look down box that my phone fits in. I run 14k mH with t5 also.

Ooooo, yea the look down surley help, I didn't think of holding off the power heads either. Also past 6 p.m. my lights are running extremely high blue, dark blue and UV so I know that's working against my camera as well. I actually have the Google pixel 4 which takes fantastic pictures with the night sight. I actually have a whole set of colored filter gel lenses coming this week that I'm going to mess around with and see if I can find a "magic" one to filter out the blue light better than my current yellow lense.

Also another tip when shooting through glass. Try not to angle the phone too much. Try and keep it as perpendicular to the glass as possible and it usually comes out pretty clear.

Hey guys just wanted to share.. In my past tanks I was never successful with acro’s. But over time I learned more and have been getting good results in my newest system. Right now my favorite in my tank has to be the WD. The top down of this frag is awesome. The growth is suprisingly fast too. Hoping it stays that way!

Awesome! I got that same green acro with pink tips and am wondering what species it is. Excited about it because it looks like it will have thick branches.
Perhaps an acropora natalensis. The commercial name looks like paletta pink tip acropora

One of my early acropora , acropora hyacintus
