I improved my first aquarium shot a bit.
Straight out of KeyShot.

I think it looks better on a darker background. :)

Yeah, the dark bacground is rockin'. The caustics look really cool. Need some greenery in the tank though, maybe some rocks.

Like you're reading my mind, Josh...
I found some cool aquatic decoration over at GrabCAD.
Currently rendering it out...

Decided to do a few more shots of this water box.Now with green water.
1st shot has a single point light below water level.
2nd shot has the point light above water level.

Oops, forgot to post my shot with dispersion. ;)
I know, there's a bit too much dispersion going on, but now you can't miss it... :D

This is a realtime rendering shot.

Nice. Try to use a mirror material on the balls, so you can see the reflection of the caustics. Mirror reflections of caustics like these cannot be simulated with algorithms like path tracing, bidirectional path tracing, Metropolis light transport etc., but the technique in KeyShot should handle it without problems.

Thanks, Henrik.
Hmm, interesting challenge. I wonder if I should make the spheres chrome or use some other geometry to best show the reflections... I'm going to try to put a chrome right triangular prism on the bottom of the aquarium with the base face facing the camera. Trying get some caustics reflected up onto the side walls.

EDIT:
I guess you mean the mirror image of these caustics. :)
I'll render this scene again tomorrow with mirror balls.

That is both crazy and awesome  8)

Specialy if you try to realise what is going on in that scene ..
