Ha, it happens. Some of the lengthy threads like this do that at times. I have some in high, but not much. And yes, the escape is the best car I've ever driven. I've drove many things so far, and after putting 100k on a Pontiac G5 I bought fresh out of college it was time for an upgrade. Driving down unplowed roads at 5 am I just needed the 4 wheel drive.

But, in terms of my tank stuff...anyone have any other ideas in terms of using my camera? The pics are ok, but still not on par with those who use the forums at all.

That leather is a 20 dollar special from Petco.

It may be but in order for me to have one I would have to have a salt tank going and I don't but I have most the chems other than salt it's self to do one with the 120 I picked up a few weeks ago but that will become cl fodder as I have 2 young kids and just enough time for fw maintenance

Oh, and I don't remember if I openly stated it or not but I ordered the red/green war coral frag and a hexagon coral from the diver's den. Should be here Tuesday.

I'll bet Fort can help you out with the white balance. I remember him saying something about putting a piece of white PVC in the tank and using it to aid in adjusting his white balance. I'm not a photographer so I really have nothing else to offer.

Yep that's how I set it on my camera. Stick some PVC in the tank and when prompted take a pic of it and it will balance everything out automatically.

Did some major work today. Took the skimmer apart and cleaned it during the water change. I also got a larger pipe so the return will be out of the water without needing to be on a stand. Since this is the piece that goes out of metric into normal America, I had to do some quick siliconing. Will be up and running tomorrow as I'm acclimating the new arrivals.
