hi all, I'm new
I got my first aquarium christmas 2009 for my son, and got hooked.
he's got a 14G with a "goldfish" (its a blood parrot) named dorothy, just like his buddy Elmo (from sesame st).
I went out and got a 125G for me!
my fave fish right now is my Jaguar, parachromis managuense. I call him "manny". he's around 7", got him at 3/4".
lot of other stuff in there, and I love to talk about my fish!

First get a photobucket account (or similar). Take the pictures, upload to computer. Get onto your photobucket account, and upload the pictures to there. THEN ask for some more directions Very Happy

Welcome to the forum!


No need to upload to your computer, just put the SD card in or plug your USB cord from your camera and go to computer and then choose SD card of camera, you should have to click one or two more folder that might be labeled "photos" instead of video or if there is two ones with random names click one and see if it has the pictures, if not you know its the other one. This just saves some time uploading and I really don't need pictures of say some plants on my hard drive but I do need it on photobucket.

I don't know about other picture hosting sites, but photobucket has an option to let you make the picture smaller. Haven't used it in a while, but I do recall that its there.

yes, on photobucket directly, resize your picture to 600x800 or smaller, then copy the link and post here. this forum only takes pictures that size or smaller.
