Here's a stunning tank based mainly on softies, zoanthids mainly, with a good few well selected LPS like Acans, and the odd SPS too.

There's several striking things about this tank, the colour is obviously exaggerated in post-production, but you can't draw colour from nowhere, there's a lot of rich colours in those corals. What stands out most to me is the quality of all the zoas, each and every single polyp looks immaculate.

I'd like to see some pictures of the rest of the set-up now, not just the tank.  :O

No, if you saw it in real life it wouldn't look as intense, these are super-saturated colours. It'll have been shot in RAW and manipulated to draw out more colour intensity.

There's nothing wrong with that, it's just showing off the colour.

It's the same with all pictures of corals on packaging, they're always heavily manipulated and have the colours made as strong as they can be without blowing the colour channel too much.
