Amazing collection!

What kind of additives do you use?

What about coral food and how often?

Nice Collection.

I have a Question though.

How do you get the Pictures to come up so Large.

When I add a Picture to a Post it is Small and you have to Click on it it Make it Larger.

I will add a Picture to Show you What I Mean.

How do I Make that Picture Very Large Like you did with all Your Chalice Pictures?

Oops, missed your post and my apologies. I edit my pictures in photoshop elements, crop most to 3x3 inches at either 200 or 300 pixels per inch and then save them as jpegs. Then I download them onto photo bucket and then I copy the "IMG" listing on photo bucket and place it on thread. Thats it.

I have mostly the same chalices and I keep taking picture after picture of them. I hope I am not bothering anyone but I so enjoy snapping pictures and sharing.





The lower right is RHS del sol (oldie but goodie)

Took some pictures this morning with only t5's on (I have 3 x blue plus and 1 x purple something or maybe pink something--I don't rememberer that bulb but it glows pinkish purple)

I am in enamored with the space invader so I thought I would bore you with some different pics:

The first one is from January of this year, shortly after I fragged it:



These next three are from today. Pretty cool recovery and growth.







And of course while doing maintenance, I broke off a piece of miami hurricane chalice, here it is sitting on a tank cross brace
