Thanks again Andy , ill upload pictures as I go .
The tank is crystal clear .
Maintaining temp at 78 and
Specific gravity is 1.024
I am thinking I will add the shrimp this week sometime but think I should wait till I purchase a test kit before I do .
Is there a kit I should stay away from ?
Is there one or a type that will give a accurate reading ?

The Api master saltwater test kit will do fine. You do realize that it's having you add shrimp from a super market right? Not live ones

Hmm can't help ya with the iPhone. It should be about the same but the apps are a little different. Look for something that says attachment after you hit reply to thread . If convict ever pops his head back in I'm sure he will tell you how

On the main site you can't use quick reply it has to be post reply


Here it is

Also in your profile in the main site if you put pictures in your profile at the bottom of the picture there are two links the img code if you copy that then you can stick the picture anywhere. That actually is the best way to do it because it saves space

I'm not helpful with the reason for this thread, but I use the iPhone app. To add to a thread you hit the arrow button on the top right of your screen. To add a photo hit the plus sign once you are in the reply screen (if you have your phone side ways it will say "advanced") if you want to start a new thread go to the correct section and then hit the arrow in the top right.
