    Hi Pugsley - have a look immediately below the "Quick Reply" area - you will see a URL link, saying: "Quick Upload"...

    Click on this - then it is as easy as browsing for the photo's on your local computer.
    You can unfortunately only upload ONE at a time...

    And read the limitations - you MIGHT need to resize your pics.

    A Beautiful place!
    Right click on the picture and choose "open with" - "microsoft office picture manager"
    There are a few options to compress or to resize - just remember to save after the resizing ;)

    Looking good Pugsley.

    I see you struggling a wee bit with GHA issues?

    Are you running phosphate remover media?

    I also see a canister filter there - together with a chiller, right?

    What media do you have inside the canister filter?

    thanks jacquesb
    GHA - thats looking ten times better already as you see it!!! I was doing the worst! using treated tap water!!!!!! But learnt my leason and now purchase RO water. Done around 20 water changes with RO and its looking allot better.
    Got phosphate remover in the sump close to the return pump to get good flow through it. But will be moving it the canister filter with nitrate remover when I get the 2nd sump.

    Yes it is the ehiem pro 3e - goes in the filter then to the chiller.

    At the moment I have bio balls, siporax and filter wool in the canister filter - but this will be removed when I do the upgrade to include the 2nd sump. Then will only have pros remover and nitrate remover in the canister filter - is this ok?

    Well - good thing you have a plan. Whatever you do, do it slow. Nothing good happens too fast in marines.
