I do have a few more. I’m cleaning the racks and plugs left to right and shooting a few pix as I go. I have 6 more racks to go.

Jolt, 

Things are looking good. I still need to schedule a time to shop in person!

What is your targeted alk and No3? Do you dose No3 with Spectracide,  or is your feeding enough?

Thanks for your response. I'll hang up and listen...

I would like 5 nitrate and 0.5 phosphate.  My nitrate is actually basically undetectable though. Phosphate is measuring about 0.06. I was dosing flourish nitrogen to bring nitrates up but was getting an ulva outbreak so I stopped. That’s why I’m cleaning all the plugs and racks lol. 

I like alk at 8.4  it’s a little high right now at 9.1 because I just replaced carx media and still trying to get that dialed in  

I need to sell some frags but I don’t have time to make pretty pics. I have about 70 pieces ready to go.

Here's an extremely rare piece, I think there are two frags known to man, I'm told the Route 66 guys lost theirs (see the lineage history here

Tyree (Route 66) Moulin Rouge 

EDITED:  I mistakenly posted a picture of my Red Planet here!  You can see the Moulin Rouge a few posts below.

Soooo, next meeting/frag swap at your house?  😍

Don't stop posting pictures - I've been watching the board last few days wondering if you've cleaned the next rack yet or not.  ☺️     What an outstanding collection.

Pink Caddy is looking great. It should start to branch out soon. Mine encrusted for a while then started growing vertically.

And I know where I need to shop next. Those frags look great.

I'd probably have to finance just one polyp of those with a guy in a dark alley.

He gave me 8 polyps... But really I gave it to myself since I ran there to "rescue" his tank from his own family who was tank/house sitting when he was in Scotland.

I was thinking about Vegas this morning, and then I caught myself doing this while cleaning the frag tank ...   I'm all in!

Thanks Ty!  I took photography class in high school (back in the dark ages!).  We used manual  35mm cameras, developed our own film, and printed our own pictures in a darkroom.  It's funny, I was pretty good at it but I just never had a nice DSLR camera until two weeks ago.  But we learned a lot of things in that class and I guess I retained some of it :)

  • Canon T7i with stock 18-55mm lens
  • Avast XL porthole
  • RAW mode ON
  • Manual mode ON
  • F8
  • ISO 400
  • Autofocus ON
  • Image Stabilization ON
  • All pumps off
  • Adobe Lightoom CC post process
    • whitebalance 16k
    • whites +20
    • blacks +20
    • exposure + 0.39

Thats basically it.  Some of the lightroom exposure settings varied since the lighting in the frag tank is not perfectly even.   Don't think I ever went above +1.2 though

I've got a T3i and used these settings but my pics came out extremely dark.  What could I have done wrong? The one thing I don't see in your list that is on my display is shutter speed. I tried several different settings but none of them worked.

Hmm, I'll have to look at that when I get a chance.  I did not set the shutter speed.  I was assuming it would be automatic based on the ISO setting and the F stop setting.

@Jimbo662I took some shots today with shutter 1/80, F4.0, ISO 200.  I didd not turn off flow or pumps.  Processed in lightroom about the same as before.  Looks like this:

Thanks! Just did a couple of tests. I'm seeing better results...just need to play with lightroom a little more. Like you I also took a photography class my senior year in high school and had a darkroom set up at home...but unlike you I didn't retain quite as much of the knowledge!  😞
