  1. I've been thinking of buying a used ICP-OES testing machine for testing Aquarium water. Thinking of longer-term being able to test water samples local. Let me know what you all think. PS, If your wondering ICP-OES stands for Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectroscopy and it Heats a test solution with plasma ripping apart the molecules creating light that a sensor reads. the benefit of ICP testing is from one sample I can test up to 50 different elements. (This is a very basic explanation of how an ICP-OES machine works the full explanation is much more complicated.)

  9. Learning how to be a pro photographer in 1 hour...

    At Cuttlefish and Corals, I am the coral photographer. I use a Canon SL2 with an EFS 35mm macro, I use a custom color card to set my White balance to help with the overwhelming blue that leds do to cameras. I also use a G-4 R-5 Color shift for color correction. I usually keep the ISO at 100 or as low as your camera can go. shutter speed at 1/400 of a second and aperture at 2.8. if the photos are too dark slowly bring the shutter speed down. the lowest the shutter speed should be is 1/250 if the images are still too dark then start bringing up the ISO. Just remember the higher the iso the lower the image quality. anyhoo what you have looks great! Keep working on it!!

    Thanks, Kim, I threw everything in my main tank when I got home. one or two might make it but time will tell. I had the heater unplugged and then when cable organizing it stupidly plugged it back in.
