Thanks. Any tips on how to cut down more on that glare from the lights with the custom white balance? Maybe a brighter white balance?

Polarized lens will reduce/ Eliminate glare.

Oh, holding polarized shades infront of the camera will supposedly solve the issue.

Polarizer filters for most cameras are only $10 FYI.

So, quick trip through my LFS' today. Sebae's and a carpet anemone. Took alot not to walk away with a sebae, I always wanted one. It was helpful that they were purple rather than the blue ones.

If there is one thing I like to do, it is talk about my aquarium. This month, now that the weather has improved the skim has returned to the top of my tank. It is odd to me that this always happens during the summer and that my oversized skimmer doesn't pick it all up. Going to see if I can add one of the powerheads back into the system to stir that back up so it can get pulled into the sump/skimmer.
I'm also freeing up room on my sandbed again, and just in the tank in general, so I can pick up a couple coral from saltwaterfish.com...might also be watching an ebay auction and reefs2go has a 50 dollar credit on it as well...

Well, I stopped typing to feed/bathe my niece and lost my train of thought...did some more work on the tank and have created more surface agitation with the powerheads. Not enough IMO, so I moved my smallest powerhead to the middle of the tank to assist.
AND a bubble coral and a mystery premium brain coral are on their way to me. Asked for their delivery next week.

Edit: I forgot to mention, today when I got home from work my pal the marine betta had come out to say hello. As usual, unable to get a camera by the time it vanished again.

Ok. Continued updates and some pics. I have shut down the refugium. It is overwhelmed with the red hair as it strangled everything. I have trimmed everything out of the red bone grass and moved it into the display. I had to take apart the pump on my skimmer as it was clogged with algae. All algae has been removed.


And some updated shots of my favorites as I play with the white balance.
