Hello!! Newbie!!

Hello, I just recently got back into the hobby after more than a decade. Have set up a 27g bowfront, with Rainbows and live plants. It's been a great adventure. Right now I have 2 male and 2 female Boesmani, 3 male turquoise, and 2 banded( I think, that's what they sold them as, but I am dubious) I also gave Otocinclus cats. My tank has been set up for about 6 months and I have not had any fish loss and they are all active and happy.

I also decided to try live plants. And to my surprise they are thriving. In fact one of my Anubis bloomed on me this week. Woohoo.

I look forward to learning a lot on the forum.

I do have one question. How do I upload a photo? The way I normally do it, does not work on this forum. What am I doing wrong. Would live to get some help identifying my plants.

Hi and welcome! Are you on the app or on the site? IF you're on the site, try following these instructions:

  • Click reply and scroll down to bottom of text box.
  • Click "go advanced" add text to message window and then scroll down.
  • Click "Manage attachments" A separate window will pop up.
  • Click "browse" Then select the file to be uploaded. Be sure that the photo is appropriately sized. 1000 x 750 pixels (or smaller) and no more than 250KB in file size. Forums software may automatically reduce the size, but smaller size photos will upload much faster. You may select several photos to upload at the same time by repeating the last step.
  • Click "Upload" After pics have loaded close the pop-up window
  • Click "submit reply" to mount the text of your message - photos will automatically appear at the bottom of your post.

About attachment storage limits

When you upload a copy of an image file (or other attachment) it is stored on our servers. There are some restrictions on how much data can be stored.

Registered members are limited to 10 MB of attachment storage for items posted to threads and posts and there is no limit for files posted to the photo gallery. We highly recommend that you reduce file sizes before uploading them to posts and threads.

How to embed an image stored on another site:
You can do this by using image tags. Upload the image to a service like imageshack and then copy the URL of the image and put that between [IMG] tags. That will work well, as long as the host site stays in business and doesn't disable your image for overuse of bandwidth etc.

You can also paste in the location of a photo stored here at Aquarium Advice in a photo gallery.

To do this: Paste the url of the image into your post. Then add the following code on either side of the url (with no extra spaces):

[IMG]url here[/IMG]

The image will appear where the url was in your text.
Every living thing is significant.
