Hah! I pulled out my old Cannon EOS Rebel that has been stored away, since well iphones. , then looked for the card reader that has a CF card slot as well as for a cable that has USB mini male, the usb a to usb c adaptor to plug into the macbook and took a picture with my 18 year old technology . The 6.3 megapixel was a memory suck back then.

What's really nice is you don't get the blue wash out with the camera. This was just a quick pic with the standard 50mm lens. I have a nice SigmaDG 70-300 macro-telephoto that I have never used the macro feature, so I'll play around with that to see what type of pics of corals I can take.

Do y'all ever think fish miss tank mates when they die? I think mine are missing the firefish.

To everyone, this is so important and if you use egg crate in your tank have a look, I am almost certain that the damage to Poto was caused because he swam into something sharp!

Exactly my concern with the barnacles.

So I discovered that I need to find my tri-pod to take pics with the Sigma. Just not enough light to get the shutter speed down to avoid my hand shake. The framing is very nice thru the view finder. Love the way it's blurring the back ground

@najer I have to say I love him more with his imperfections.
I just got this sort of by accident as I was set for a coral pic.
Ok, the line by his mouth is the original spot of damage.
The lips appear to be slowly recovering, less of a gap.
The dark spot behind the mouth is where that stripe should be! The infection stopped right at the eye luckily.
Below the right edge of the eye there is a sort of yellow spot on the gill cover, that was a hole.
The rear edge of the gill cover has softened edges compared to how it was but the big change is that the bit that was raised away from the body appears to be slowly flattening back. :)
Today is the first day that I would say that there is an improvement, he lost a lot of weight over the past two weeks and this past few days he has been acting very oddly.
It is the first time I have seen him look playful for ages! :)

I hope it's as beautiful where u are at as it is here. 75 degrees (23.88 celcius for najer;)) and sunshine with a few clouds. That and a double espresso makes the world go round--for me.
Double espresso and rain here. It is warm though.

Good luck! I'm almost 100% sure it'll turn out great ;)
I am holding you to that. You may be the only one to associate with me after ;)
