    :welcometomasa2:..try opening an Album and load onto there...no need for the resizing jobbie...then when you post or reply, you insert the picture..make sure curser in flashing in new line, wait few seconds and voila..got picture...

    You can use the Image uploader, be prepared for the resizing...best is FireFox Browser as it's "compatable" with MASA...I've got Internet Explorer and when I use Image Uploader, my picture goes to the top...so I just copy(from the top) and paste in the reply box and again...voila..hehee..hope this helps...

    Chiller and RO system outside and water changes you don't have to get your hands wet, mixing drum and extra RO water all outside my kitchen, when topping RO to my tank or even doing water changes I pump the water through my celling to the tanks.

    Now THAT is how a mixed reef tank should look like. Very impressive and a noteworthy tank of the month nominee.
    Well done on keeping and maintaining such a stunning tank. A nice variety you have there, of both fish, and coral.

    also kudos to you for going the extra step of havinga decent quarentine set up and good battery back up, so often people dont bother with one or the other leaduing to disaster. good on you for setting them up.
