    So what are you waiting for, go upgrade! Everyone else is doing it... I noticed you have a gmail account. I use picasa (googles photo storage service) via my android. It's all free and there should be an app for it on the apple side. It's super easy to take and upload pictures.

    So the tank is all set up not exactly how I want it because I'm moving it in a month or so to our new house and it'll go on a new stand and get a new sump, new plumbing pumps etc. But if I can get a volunteer to post some pics for me so you all can see

    check out Jimmy's thread:http://www.masvc.org/t528-uploading-pictures-to-the-forum-via-photobucket for the pictures.

    You should add a stand pipe to that design. a durso style. If you ask Jimmy, he can take a picture of his for you. He has two of them on his tank. That will eliminate almost all of the noise.
