I went through folders and folders of pictures Ive taken of my Bandensis and Officinalis to make a collection of all my favorite ones. I realised that I literally only take 1 good picture out of a 1000 heh. Heres a few Id like to share. I know im not the best photography, but here goes..

I love all your cuttles. Im in the process of thinking of converting my 29 to salt and cycling it to get a cuttle by summer/late spring. BTW what camera are you using, your getting pictures I never could come close to getting through my tanks.

Thanks!.. Im using a basic point and shoot SONY, but you really don't want to use that. I would recommend something with more manual control options for white balance..etc. A DSLR is proffered, but they are pricey!

Good picture show:wink: It is a bit difficult to proceed with my plans to restart a seahorse tank when cuttle folk give nice presentations. Empty, cycled tanks are dangereous :mrgreen:

Is the next to the last one of your officinalis?

OOP! I missed the caption on the last set. You had mentioned that you badly wanted another before you got this group and I half wondered if you would figure out something to pipe into your cool setup and get the one listed on Live Aquaria ;>)

Great pics! BTW...if you are looking for a decent camera but dont wanna go allout with a DSLR, cannon makes a point and shoot which has RAW capabilities.

Ive been borrowing a camera from a friend and have been taking a lot of new pictures. A few interesting ones from the last week.


Its Coming Right at me!

Face Sucker

I feed them with a fishing line attached to a skewer of shrimps





I believe these eggs are not viable

Id love to acquire an officinalis again, but since I was not able to get them when my tank was first setup, the 150 would not be a good home for one. Id prob need a chiller and rearrange my rockwork and have less corals. My reef obsession has come back in full force, so Im not willing to sacrifice all the nice SPS Ive collected. =)

How's your large tank build/plans going?

Having the Bandensis in a full blown reef has not shown any problems so far. They are all laying eggs like mad! Im not looking forward to taking them out. Theres a huge cluster in a cave that would be very difficult to remove.

Our over the stairwell tank is in financial hold, and will be that way until my work status has more security ;>(
