Wow! Hard to believe this is your first attemp! All the plants look healthy & nice growth over the last few months.
Nice tank! Good work. Congratulations on your success.

I sure would like to see some larger format pics, though. Even 1024 x 720 isn't too, too big.
How do I put bigger pictures in? I get told in manage attachments that max size is 420x280 for jpegs. Is there a way to add bigger pictures directly into the text of the post?
I use photobucket as storage for my pictures. I then use the pre-made html coded "img link" in my posts. The link that has
what is photobucket and how do i access it?
I agree. I also use "Photobucket" .
Yep, photobucket has been the easiest by far for me. The only downside is that I can't see pics when I'm at work because the security settings on our server block most of those types of sites. But, once you get your pics on there, you just click the bottom 'bar' and the pic you want to post is automatically copied for you to paste in the thread on this site. Very easy!
