    oredi? You mean 'already' ? Yes putting sand before the water is fine if you have washed it thoroughly. What filtration will you be using? How big is the tank etc?

    I am sure some of the phone "geeks” can help you do that. They might want to know what phone you have.

    masahello. oh and i have tried uploading from my phone as well. problem is when using the paperclip to attach the pics, is that it wants to brows the same way as on pc. so that is the reason why it doesn't work. you will have to load them to a pc and then to the site, unless someone else has had better luck

    I'm using my Samsung Galaxy Note and browsing the same way as I use my pc ... Even loading of pics .... Same way ... So if you using Android then shouldn't be a hassle
