New Coral pictures!

Here are some new pictures of my corals under leds! Took pictures and used auto white balance to fix them up. They still look better in person, but this is better than nothing! Mostly zoanthids, but an acan as well looking a bit mad. (I woke them up to get pictures).

Pics go like this: Top left are unknown zoanthids. Top right is some "radioactive" something zoanthid.
Bottom left are red people eaters + a sexy shrimp. Bottom right are some "candy apple" zoanthids.

More to come when my other corals stop acting like emos.

I see some radioactive dragon eyes, some eagle eyes, i agree on the people eaters, but in that second pic.. could you get a better picture of those? Without actinics on? Or are those under LED's? They... kind of look like some type of hornets from that picture.

Thanks guys, they are doing well under the leds.

Zer0-I dont think I have any hornets, but here is abother picture. They are under leds and fluoresce crazy.

Also added some more corals. Fire and ice zoas and some other unknown zoas.

Also added an acropora picture from my 20g tank (t5s). Its an ORA borealis thats been growing for a few months now.

Borealis is one of the last corals on my wish list, super nice!
I have recently found I get great results if you shoot your camera in RAW format, once you bring them into photoshop/similar, its super easy to adjust the white balance with no loss of data. Everything looks great! FTS soon?

Yeap, the borealis is nice and has nice large polyps. The largest of all my SPS corals. ORA makes a good coral!

Im dying to get one of those hawkins acros so bad. Either no one has it, or its crazy expensive! :-(

Maybe I will gift myself a mini colony when I graduate with my EE degree!
