    Welcome,
    You can add photos into any of your posts, but you may want to start a showcase where you can have a running therad for your build.

    You mean the file names? You have to change them on your PC before you upload them. Once you have uploaded an image you should see it listed below your post - you can then decide whether to add the image into your post as either a full image or a thumbnail - just place your cursor where you want the image then select the option you want (full or thumb). Hope this helps! :)

    Most are reef safe, look at reefbreeders.com for good deals on CUC. Your corals will not likely spawn in the aquarium there’s just too many variables ie tidal surge, lunar cycle that we just can’t duplicate. The corals will grow and split or branch, mushrooms will move around on the rocks and leave a small piece of their foot which will grow into another mushroom. Watching and learning that’s the fun part!
