hackteck ... I use Auto setting, no flash ... and a home made tripod (usually a bunch of movies stacked up)! You just have to keep trying until you get the right angle!


Sharkman - usually if corals that are low-mid lighting are placed high up in say Metal Halide lighting it can cause them to bleach out or turn very light in color, sometimes white. They can be cared for meticulously and nursed back to health but from what I have seen and read most of the time they end up dieing.

I have wanted and Open Brain BUT I have read that they do not do well if you have Hermit carbs. It said that the hermit cards can kill an open brain. For the people that have Open brains, what type of clean up crews do you have if you can not have hermint crabs with an Open Brain??

I have hermits in my tank, and the brain doesn't seem bothered by them!
