I'm not sure what system you are on. I'm on my iphone and to post pics i click the little picture thing when hitting reply or posting new. Not 100% on how it works on a PC or other device.

Cool! What are those tubes made out of? The blue background looks great with the white sand!

If your wiling to put a little bit of money into it universal holy rock looks amazing with cichlids. It looks like texas holy rock but weights about 100x less..

Looks great!! I can't wait until I have the space and the funds for a bigger tank, I'll have to be content with the 75g for now.
