For this week’s AquaNerd POTW, we’re getting an extreme up close look at the ORA Sprung’s Stunner from our friend Daniel Leija’s 40-gallon reef aquarium. In Daniel’s aquarium, this coral has a broadly plating growth form and sports a deep purple base with neon green polyps. Depending on the lighting, the coral can take on a tan base color, while the corallites usually remain that glowing green regardless. As far as the details for this shot go, we used a 100mm macro lens with a couple of lens extenders that really let us get ultra close shots. « Previous post Next post »
