    Man I need a good camera, every-time I get ready to spend the money I always by something else for my Rimless Reef instead! Damn you self control, damn you.

    That’s a really simple yet wonderful idea… A bit like keeping a baby album for your tank… 😀

    Hmmm… I think I know which album’s going to get the most pictures and I can see me being in trouble again… 😛

    Thats funny this is the Tip of the week just last night I was watching a timelapse video on the growth of coral. It was a great video.

    Tip for those people with digital SLR (and advanced compacts).

    Don’t use the light the camera says. Usually the picture is better when the camera says there was a little to less light. For some reason the camera cannot measure the aquarium light correct.

  • There are now 2 things I look forward to on a Friday. That’s the start of the weekend and your Friday AM Quick tip. I have have to say that my weekends are not the same now that I have watched all your videos. Learnt loads and have implemented some of your ideas and have some great ideas now for when I get my upgrade tank early next year.

    Looking forward to your next video.

    Documentation is very useful but having a bunch of pics isn’t necessarily “fun”. It just is taking a bunch of pics. Outsiders would consider watching grass grow more entertaining.

    Adding a ruler or some type of comparison to the image proves VERY useful when taking the photos.
