I used a piece of White PVC Pipe. Just stick it down in the tank and used it as my reference.

Hey Justin just got my iPad today and was checking out your photos on the pad instead of the iPhone. WOW!!!! Absolutely amazing corals! Very healthy and the colors... Just wow!! Glad I got to view them here and have a chance to really appreciate them. Thanks for sharing.

What a difference a few camera adjustments plus a different lens makes. Quit raising the bar so high! jk jk

Took hours to read this entire thread as i had to keep googling stuff up but I learned a ton . Really Really nice setup awesome pics . It made me realize that photography is a huge enhancement to this hobby but it needs to be done right with the right tools.

If I can get half as nice with my setup I will be happy.

Thanks! This being my first reef, it has not been without its frustrations... but things really seem to be jammin' in the tank now, and I am getting more and more confident with the coral.

I think I decided a DSLR is almost required equipment... if you hang out on Aquarium Forums, what good is it if you can't share what you have created?
