Little jelly

Post by Linden.g »

I saw this little guy swimming around my marine tank. He's about 1mm across and I managed to catch him with a glass pipette. 10x S-plan Achromat

Thanks guys

Mitch a year ago I had a 120gal reef aqaurium with additional tanks in my basement for purification and growing inverts. I recently sold the system but kept smaller 50gal system in the basement with just live rock as a source of interesting samples. So the rock has been exposed to about 10 years of a high quality reef. I'm not sure if this is a larval jellyfish or a larval anemone. Would be geat if someone could ID this. I'll post a picture of the tank.

I'll be curious to see what it turns out to be. I wonder if he glows in the dark. Is he back in the tank?

Hi Mitch, yes I recovered him from the slide. Here is the picture of my old tank

I recently bought a flashlight that has an array of 51 UV LED emitters to experiment with blacklight illumination with the microscope. I bet it would light that tank up at night with all the lights out. :)

Linden,

Very beautiful image!

Do you find that you need to correct some CA in post processing when using the S Plan Achromat in darkfield?

Hi Charles, yes just a little touch of pale green and yellow. It wasn't too bad though

Hi there Linden,
Wow! :shock:
This is a great shot! I think I will take a trip to the coast near me to see what I can get. :lol:
Thanks for the inspirational shot :D
