Here's a few pics
I need a better camera this Canon power shot is not cutting the mustard
new clowns and coral
Clowns look great, good luck with the coral.
As for your camera you will need to experiment with settings to get good pics. Use your macro setting, use the greatest picture size, and get something to help you keep the camera steady. Clean the glass inside and out and lens before taking pictures. Turn off flow so the camera doesn't have something to focus on other than your intended target. Shoot straight on to the target. The camera can not focus well if you aim at an angle through the glass.
Thanks for the tips ... I do use the macro setting but I will try your other suggestions
I forgot to add take the pic as close to the glass as possible. Good luck. It took my several hundred shots before I got pics that I felt were presentable let alone good.
Turns out it wasn't coralline algae at all but the early stages of Cyanobacteria....Now this stuff is spreading like wildfire how would you get rid of it??
Anyone have any ideas with the red slime that will not go away???? I have tried black out periods of 2 weeks and it still comes back when lights are turned on
What is your flow rate and nitrate and phosphate levels?
