Every so often I get motivated to take a few pictures of my reef from above. Frankly, the best view is looking down into the aquarium from my perch on the walkboard. I took these pictures with my iPhone 12, using the Polyp Labs lenses in a Smartphone Floater.
All the flow stays on, and I simply move the Floater to the desired location and take a picture. I didn't alter my lighting; this was just a spur of the moment decision meaning I don't know exactly where in the lighting spectrum the Sky lights were at the time. The XHOs were on.
This first picture (below) is the area of my reef I call the Coral Graveyard. Despite what the name sounds like, everything is quite alive. All these corals are simply down on the sand, left to do what they want, semi-forgotten by me. It behind the reef, only visible from the fishroom side, but best viewed from above. PAR in this area measures around 115. If I ever make some room on the rockwork, I'd be able to take some of these pieces and move them into a more visible location.
This picture (above) is an area of my 400g reef that is visible, it's the lower left corner beneath the MP60 Vortech pump.
And here are a few more topdown shots. At this time, the corals have been under the Sky fixtures for 23 days.
