Question

Hey all,

Ordered my 12G long today and excited to join the club once I get all my equipment in!

What Finnex LED fixture would you all recommend if I'd like to keep this tank fairly low tech?

I'm thinking either the 36" Fugeray or (3) 10" FugeRay-R's. Anyone have thoughts on this? I fear I will have to suspend the 36" FugeRay, but I should be able to pull this off. Additionally if I choose to go down the CO2/slightly more high tech route in the future, I will always have the ability to lower the light fixture at that point.

The PAR output on (3) FugeRay-R's should put me in a lower light category, but that's 3 power cords to deal with and a less minimalist look.

Looks like I just answered my own question!

A question for you folks running CO2 on your tanks: What is an estimated start up cost for a basic paintball system with the tank, regulators, diffusers, tubing, etc? How often do the 24oz tanks need a refill?

Looking forward to starting my journal and joining the club!

I would get ray2 36" if you end up to hang up the light anyway (if money not an issue). More option if you wanted to go high light plants later on.

My CO2 setup was about 130 because the aquatek regulator was on sale around Xmas when I bought it. About 150 is safe for a total cost though and it's been up for a couple of months now without a refill. No idea how long it'll last

Default photography



How do people go about photographing a long scape while capturing nothing but te inside of the tank. For instance, when I see pics of contest tanks, all I see is the inside and the water above which people like to add water ripples to. Is it mostly "photo-shoped" pics along with professional lighting. I'm curious to see if anyone here knows.

I'm always stuck taking photos from a distance and posting pics like the one above. I want to see my plants in better quality photos is what I'm trying to do while getting the whole layout as well.

Your water is very clear. Impressive with such a small filter

Basically they are just cropping the pictures. They probably do some curve adjustment to bring out the highlights and shadows. Also, these 12g's may be too shallow to see ripple effect.

Btw, what lens are you using?

Thanks. My water is crystal clear, but that small filter is connected to a relatively big sump below the tank....lol.

Thanks for the info.

My galaxy s phone (5.0 mega pix - I remember when this was high for point and shoot cameras) for all the photos in my 12 gal journal.

But I do own a nikon d5100, only using the standard lens it came with. I will eventually start practicing again.

Wow. The very 1st Galaxy produced those photos? Did you have to use any special setting or whatever the standard setting was?
