Picked up a new toy today since the iPhone cam wasn't cutting it. I am not good at taking pictures and know nothing about it, but here are my first shots from my Canon EOS Rebel T3.

So much better than the iPhone pics! Those corals have color now!

I realize it has only be a few days... but it also seems that coral does not add significantly to the bioload from what I have read. If my frogspawn is still looking good in 3 or 4 more days, would it be too soon to add a torch?

Go ahead, you could add one now. Coral barely have a bioload.

Yep, I would think even adding one now would be okay.

Yeah go ahead and add as many as you want :P A tip though, have some saltwater mixed for when you lose water when you acclimate. When I first did it my ATO would make up the difference in water and my salinity would drop.

Those pictures are sweet! I like the FTS.. very clean look with the rimless action going on.


I looked up that model of camera you got.. not too expensive. I may have to invest!

+1 regarding corals. From all i read, once you are cycled you can basically fill your tank with them. I wouldnt suggest this, just in terms of impact on bioload.

Have you thought about adding a duncan to you tank? They have nice movement and arent aggressive corals like frogspawns, torches, and hammers.
