What kind of camera do you use??
How close to the tank are these shots taken??
I can never get a nice clear close up of my corals like you do yours. I have a Canon Power Shot S3 IS 6 MP 12x zoom
Canonpowersot 570. Don't even make it anymore. I set the camera so it takes pics as long as I hold the shutter down so I may take 30 pics of the same subject to get one good one.

Zoanthids? Not at all as long as you follow a few simple rules like dip new arrivals incase there are nudis or snails and look them over well for nudi eggs and feed palythoas and protopalythoas. Zoanthus do not normally feed though they can filter feed, just not large foods like the palys.
And I recommend the use of iodine myself. Keep the salinity about 1.025, nirtites and phosphates down (I prefer active refugium for control) and provide proper lighting (find where each zoa type does best; high/med/low lighting).

what are those really big pink ones called in the first pic, and the really big blue ones in the 4th pic?
I love the bigger polyps they are cool!!
Cocos in the first and some kind of blue protopaly in the 4th.
Ok, um wow.....
The 8th pic the one with the sun coral in the background what is that ? Is that also sun coral ( I know nothing apparently )
It is not my background as I finally got rid of your full ric tank as my background after 8 plus months and now im onto your new pics lol.
Anywho I honestly want to ride my bike out that way someday and just drool on your carpet as those are so beautiful. I am right now extending my home to you on the good side of Florida ANYTIME for a weekend or something for trade your expertise on my tank lol. It might take you moving into my fishy room and im fine with that just got to talk you and the wife into it lol. Honestly Mike if I could get my stuff half as nice as yours I would be a rich rich man.
