I'm enjoying the leaves blowing off the trees from my window. Fall is a great time of year. It's a time for hot soup, hikes,last minute camping, and mapping my aquarium for PAR.

Nature outside isn't the only thing that has been changing. The corals have been growing. The sea anemone has gotten quite large. Down below you can see a zoanthid that has grown from its pedestal. They are slowly spreading across the aquarium.

I've had a lot of success with the corals because I knew where to put them that the light would benefit them the most.

It didn't take too long to be able to map the aquarium. I was able to put the corals where they would best survive.
|Our Mapped Aquarium's numbers|
From time to time I have to go to our local aquarium to get inspiration on the best ways to make our corals and plants look great. I often bring my two best researchers.

I'm working more and more to get my corals to look a lot like this. I just wanted to say again, that although I sell PAR meters that are used by aquarium experts, I am still relatively new to the hobby. I ppreciate any advice anyone reading this can give me.
