    Try this first:

    Go to "Go Advanced" below the reply box. Then click on the paper clip icon. Attach the photo directly from your computer.

    Try to resize your photo. Maybe it's too big?

    Nice aquascaping so far. Are your rock resting on the sand? Or on the glass? If they are on the sand, you should move them so that they are on the glass. Fish and inverts will move the sand around and can cause a rock slide if the rocks are sitting on top of the sand.

    so had a little scare last night, ammonia shot up as well as my tank temp. i think it might of had something to do with the humidity and thunderstorms. but the temp is back down to 77, and the damsels seem to be going better.

    You're going to see the ammonia spike, then slowly turn to nitrites then nitrates over around a 3-4 week period. This is the nitrogen cycle and all tanks have to go through this. It's also why the LFS guy told you not to add anything for 3-4 weeks, although it doesn't seem like they really explained this.

    As for the temp issue, how old is your heater and is it a decent brand? Heaters are one of those things that just seem to poop out and act funny after awhile. If it's not a problem with the heater but rather the recent temp spikes we've been having (Ohio is close to Jersey.... kinda.) over the last few days, you can always blow a fan over the surface of the water to cool it down when it gets really hot.

    Anyway, welcome to the site and the hobby!

    Welcome, Like everyone has said above, take your time, it took me 3 weeks before my tank was completely settled to put any kind of animals in and 2 months before I actually put fish in!

    but you will get there, the golden rule is 'nothing good happens quickly in a reef tank' So take it slow and whenever your not stocking or playing with your tank, come here and ask questions, so far everyone seems really nice :D
