You'll find at the bottom of the reply box an area to attach a file from your computer (see attached photo). As long as the file is not to big it will upload fine, if not you may have to resize it on your computer to make it fit the AA parameters.

Edit: Pardon my triple images, the software was not showing an attachment nor do I see an area to delete the two extra

If you think it is aiptasia why dont u invest in some peppermint shrimp.. If the problem turns out not to be aiptasia they'd definately add abit more diversity to your tank..

Or, buy a little container of Joes Juice. That stuff, and the addition of some peppermint shrimp, eliminated my problem.
I wouldn't worry about taking the rock back when there are much easier solutions.

All the aptasia that came in on my live rock way back in March or so died off by itself eventually. I didn't do a thing, nor did I panic. (Please don't, it's not a life-threatening situation!)
