Is this Photoshopped

I know some of you out there are prety good with comps, so tell me is this real. I found it while surfing on nano reef. Guy claims it is a 13 gallon.

a pic blown up

feb 4 2005

Ok where the problem comes in is that over almost a year that tang has not grown. Also you never see both tangs togeather. Finally when the pic is blown up you can see the black spaces. Oh and not to mention how clear this pic is, it would take like a 20 megapixel camera to get pics like that I would think. Now the tank owner is in Korea and doesnt anser any questions about the tank so let me know

I dont think that it is. The colors are to be expected from those species. The shading looks normal to me. I dont see anything that impressive in his tank to make photoshopping worth while.

I'm with Thunnus. Why bother? It is nice, but not outrageous. As for the tang, perhaps he isn't growing that fast in such a small tank? Perhaps the owner killed the first one and bought another? My only doubt would be about the size. It looks more like 20 gallons to me instead of 13, but I wouldn't be shocked if it really was only 13.

That tang looks way too small to me to be in a 13 gallon tank. I would think 20+.

Well to me the corals look real but the fish almost look like they were done by pixar. Just wanted some others ideas.

I don't think it's chopped, but using the clam and fish for comparative sizing, that tank is bigger than a 13 gal. I'd say 30 at least.
