My wife is the photo queen but even she cannot get the blues out of the picture.  Next we will try in full sunshine mode and see how that works.  Looking for a clam, probably either a crocea or a maximus.  Have also considered getting some ricordia, anyone having good luck with clams or rics?

To get the blue out and still have colors pop with fluorescence you need to use a yellow filter or do some serious work with the white balance if your camera can do it. I take them with my smart phone and a free yellow filter sample.

She tried the lens from an old pair of sunglasses but it was more orange then yellow and did seem to do much.  I may just purchase a filter for her phone.

I have a huge supply of photo filter samples with lots of shades of yellow to orange. You are welcome to barrow them to try with your phone and see which shade works the best for her phone.

That's right, Tuesday the 19th I'll be in Sarasota to tour the service dog training center with the Miata club... and I should even be driving my Miata! I'll check out the schedule and send you an email and see if we can work out a visit and I'll bring the filter sample pack.

 

BTW, I now drive the Miata regularly and just take it back to the shop to do data logs and dyno runs and to upload new revised tunes from Moto-East. We just have 3 minor issues that should be pretty easy to fix and then we start adding boost and doing serious dyno runs. The car is 95% of what I would consider proper for a road car. And even with virtually no boost from the turbo, the 2.5 liter motor makes as much power as the old 2.0 liter motor did at 12 pounds of boost.

Either way I think it looks fantastic man. I've always had troubles trying to take good photos that aren't washed out in blue light.

A few recent photos.  We are seriously thinking about selling everything but have no interest in parting it out so will need to take that into consideration when I set the price. Unfortunately, as is always the case we will tank a HUGE hit. I have close to 80 corals/RFA.  I would be a great set up for a person starting out or upgrading from a smaller tank, completely turnkey.

John, sorry to hear that you are considering getting out of the hobby. Your system looks spectacular.

About the time I get it looking good and everything growing I decide to move on.  If you know anyone who wants to take everything tank, stand and a boat load of misc equipment and the live stock let me know.  I would sell the live stock separately if but I am not selling individual corals at this time.  Here is my listing on R2R.

I think it is a deal, and one that an ambitious reefer could buy and resell for a profit.  You know keep what you want and sell the rest and have next to nothing in the corals you keep.

 

In case you lost my email it is [email protected] or text me at 941-323-7541 of course a phone call works also:)

I sold all of livestock but I have a lot of equipment, including a very nice rimless 100 gallon tank with custom cabinet and 50 sump.  If interested you can email me for a complete list..

John,

Glad to see you moved the livestock on. That should make the hardware easier to sell. Good luck.

Down to a bunch of misc equipment.  It is listed on Craigslist Sarasota Bradenton if anyone is interested.
