    How do you get such nice pictures with so much blue? My camera does not like the blue lights at all, pics always look crappy. Really nice.

    I use a dslr. A Nikon d5100. But I change my white balance to the cloudy setting. It picks up blues better then. These shots have had very little color correction if any at all. I dont like post processing my coral shots. Its too easy to make a coral look unrealistic that way. Custom white balances are usually the best way to go when shooting a reef tank, but I usually just use cloudy and make sure to get a good exposure. Alot a playing around with your camera and a basic understanding of photography really helps get quality shots.
