    hi and welcome zaid you can add photos by using the little paperclip and upload from there. it is the easiest way. or you can upload to photobucket and just post the links so that we can go look. what you can also do is create an album in your user CP and just post the link to it from there:thumbup:

    20130528_071411_zps42ba0464.jpg
    I am adding orcas nitraguard and orcas phosguard with some activated charcoal in the first compartment next to skimmer. In the middle compartment is the dsb which I have added some aragonite. in the third compartment I have added ammoniastones with small pieces of liverock and a 100w heater.

    This is the tank with the original lights on. Was looking too blue so I decided to change the bulbs.

    one tip though. try add some more LR in the system. that little piece is not enough. your LR houses a lot of beneficial bacteria that is needed in your aquarium. but otherwize it is relly looking good there man

    use the little image button, the one that yellow and looks like a mountain and moon. Paste the image links in the popup that comes up. Then your pictures will be on the page, instead of separate links.
