JPEGs/JPGs are usually much smaller in size. Did you try them?

Current fish (includes all 3 running tanks): Polypterids, severums (of which I raised from eggs), gouramis, plecos (gold spot ones & a gurupa), loaches (zebras, yoyos, & a kubotai), macculocchi spotted silver dollars, an African butterfly fish, & Ctenopomas (a leopard & an ansorgii)

Maybe this will help.

BMP's are historicly way to big for their acutal image dimensions. This is because there is zero compression in them. Jpegs can often be 10% of a BMP in size for the exact same visual quality.

As was referenced the how to add images to your post. If you still are having issues you can use a free image hosting service like the one in my signature.
