Slow Life – impressive time-lapse coral shots!

28 Apr

This awesome video shows the movement of corals and sponges shown as time-lapse. The shots of coral and sponges were composed of 150,000 individual images and was made with a Canon 7D/5D and a Canon MP-E 65mm lens. The result is impressive and should definitely be watched at on a good screen in HD:

Feeding corals – always impressive as timelaps video!

22 Jan

The selective coral feeding with zooplankton has become (due to the high quality food) for me quite normal. I feed my LPS, mostly Acanthastrea, Fungia, Lobophyllia and Euphyllia species regularly 1-2 times a week with Goldpods (liquid Calanus). From time to time they grab even large Mysis which I’m feeding my fish.

I personally think, time-lapse videos of feeding corals are most impressive, because the movement of the coral – the inflation, stretching polyps, catching plankton and the transfer inside are visible best.

Here is a small video collection of time lapse video:

Jan’s living room tank

2 Aug

Today we introduce you to a beautiful tank by our reader Jan – Have fun with it!


The tank has been completely designed by me personally and also partially made. The glass works have been  made by a professional aquarium manufacturer and the cabinet by a master locksmith. All wood and electrical work has been carried out and implemented by myself. From planning to first water in it, it took about 3 months. The start and the move from my old 212l Cube ran without any problems and now I am enjoying it every day that I have fulfilled my dream of my living room reef.
