    Hi Ventura

    Hi my name is Jaren I'm new to having a coral reef tank. I started with a 14g biocube but after a couple of months I really wanted something bigger. Now I have a 50g SC aquarium with starfire glass and a 4 bulb T5 fixture my corals are doing way better now. Here are some pics cant wait to meet every one at the meeting coming up.

    Dwolson2 did you make a top for your tank or are you going to leave it the way it is?

    I'm going to either put egg crate or the vinyl stuff on there. My tank is tore down in the garage for my move in 2 weeks. I'll post up when it's set up though.

    Welcome, I just joined this forum also. Your tank looks really good. I'm a fan of simple, sleek setups. The new rimless units are great for this philosophy.

    I'd share picture of my tank but I'm still trying to figure out how to post photos using the hosting feature. For some reason can't seem to get it to work. I'm using Google Chrome browser...so perhaps that's my problem.

    I'm not new to coral tanks but have been doing it for years. Like you, I started out small and then ended up going as large as 125 Gallons. I'm now down to a 28 gallon as this is all I have time to maintain. I also have 3x kids...so I can't throw a lot of dinero things anymore.

    I may go to the next meeting..perhaps take my 5-year old son who is just starting to appreciate the hobby.

    Uploading Pictures to the forum via photobucket
    by sisterlimonpot on Fri Apr 06, 2012 8:33 am
    This is a tutorial of how to upload pictures to MASVC using photo bucket.


    FROM THE COMPUTER (iPhone instructions in post #2 below)
    First thing you have to do is start an account at photobucket.com and once you have established that then you're ready to follow along.

    Once logged in click on the green "Upload" button at the top of the page.


    Enlarge this image Click to see fullsize



    Click on the green "Select Photos and Videos"


    Enlarge this image Click to see fullsize



    You can either select multiple files or one at a time, here I chose 2 pictures to upload


    Enlarge this image Click to see fullsize



    Click "Open"


    Enlarge this image Click to see fullsize



    This shows the pictures being uploaded, be warned that they inject an advertisement on this page while you're waiting for the pictures to be uploaded. Unless you pay to for the upgraded photobucket account you have to sit through them


    Enlarge this image Click to see fullsize



    Once the upload is complete click "view Album"


    Enlarge this image Click to see fullsize



    Now that the picture has been uploaded onto photobucket, all you have to do is roll the mouse over the picture you want and allow it to expand revealing 4 options to choose,



    Click on the box to the right of "IMG code" and if you did it correctly you will see it briefly display "copied"



    Tab back over to MASVC website and paste (right click paste or ctrl v) where you want the image to appear in your post


    Enlarge this image



    If you did it right you will see the url code displayed as such


    Enlarge this image



    Once you are done with your post and ready to submit it you can either click on the "submit" button or if you want to preview it before you submit you can click "preview" to ensure everything is where you want it.


    Enlarge this image Click to see fullsize



    Once submitted it will look like this

    If it does then you have successfully uploaded an image for everyone to see, and for people like me, that have to have your synapses stimulated by great pictures, it makes for a more enjoyable thread.

    FROM YOUR IPHONE

    Step 1.
    Open the app store and go to the search tab. Type in "Photobucket" and hit search

    Enlarge this image Click to see fullsize



    Step 2.
    Click the icon that is a camera in a blue square and says "Photobucket" next to it. once opened click the button that says "FREE" and then click install. You may have to enter your Apple ID password. If you don't know what this is read THIS.

    Enlarge this image Click to see fullsize



    Step 3.
    Once installed find the app on the home screen and open it by taping. it will take you to the main menu.

    Enlarge this image Click to see fullsize



    Step 4.
    At the bottom of the screen you will see four selections. Click on the upload Media tab that looks like an up arrow. This will bring you to the login/create a new user screen. If you have already used this app and are signed in skip to step 6 if not keep reading. If you have an account on Photobucket.com then sign in with your username and password and skip to step 6. If not click the green button at the bottom that says "Join Now. It's Free!"

    Step 5.
    You now need to enter your account info. Make sure to enter a username and password you can remember! Once you are all done scroll to the bottom and hit submit.

    Enlarge this image Click to see fullsize



    Step 6.
    You are now at the Upload Media page! On this page you have two options to upload your pictures. You can ether select the "Chose Existing" button if you have already taken the photo with your phone. Or you can hit the "Choose Camera" button if you wish to take the photo right now. In my opinion choosing the "Choose Camera" button is more difficult and i usually take my photos before launching the app.

    Enlarge this image Click to see fullsize



    Step 7.
    Once you click the "Choose Existing" button you will be taken to your camera roll where you can select the pictures you want to use by clicking on them. After you have selected all the photos you want to upload hit the "Upload" button. this will take you back to the upload media tab where you will see your photos being uploaded. Make sure not to exit the app, change tabs, or lock your phone while they are uploading as it may cause an issue with the upload process.

    Enlarge this image Click to see fullsize



    Step 8.
    After all the photos have uploaded and you are left with a blank uploading page click the "My Albums" button on the navigation bar at the bottom. This will take you to your album where you can see all the photos you just uploaded.

    Enlarge this image Click to see fullsize



    Step 9.
    The next step is to tap on the first image you would like to add to the forum. This will enlarge the image. You can access your other images by hitting the button in the top left corner.

    Enlarge this image Click to see fullsize



    Step 10.
    Now that you have completed step 9 click the button on the bottom right hand side of the screen that looks like an "i" inside a circle (the symbol for information). This will bring up the information screen where you have four different options.

    Enlarge this image Click to see fullsize



    Step 11.

    Enlarge this image Click to see fullsize



    Step 12.

    Enlarge this image Click to see fullsize



    Step 14.
    Tap the big white box where the text goes so that your keyboard pops up. Now hold down your finger in the white box until a button appears that says "Paste"

    Enlarge this image Click to see fullsize



    Step 15.
    When you hit paste the IMG code that you copied in step 11 will appear. Hit the done button on your keyboard to hide it again. If you have more than one image to upload hit you home button again and open photobucket then follow steps 9-15 for each image you want to post.
