    i recently was given a product by mark vera who was down here from the states,
    its a wicked little unit that one of his sponsers is developing for the marine aquarium trade......you get similar units called ring lights to attach to your camera, but these guys are developing these units with adjustable light spectrums, magnifying lenses and camera adaptors specially for the marine trade.
    i believe that while he was here a few of the marine aquarium importers have made deals in order to get this product to south africa.
    mark was impressed with our r.o.units and reactors and landed up swopping me for this baby, so he could take our units to the states and show some people there:thumbup:

    yip looks like the same type of idea.....
    i think mark is just helping the company that sponsers him to develop a unit aimed at the marine aquarium hobby , he was saying things like light spectrum and magnifying stengths were critical cause most of us keep corals a few centimets if not more away from the pane of glass

    c'mmon viper when is next months photo comp......im in this time;)
