Just a suggestion for you. I believe Tapatalk downconverts the pics and lowers the resolution. Get the photobucket app on the App store it's free. You can take pics and upload them to photobucket. Then instead of attaching the photo you copy and paste the URL image code to your post. It'll then post in the original resolution. Most of the pics of my tank were taken with an iPhone 4 as well.

(you might already know all this; if you do, then disregard my post).

You just missed the image brackets on the outside of the URL.

If you're posting everything from the iPhone you can do this:

First upload your pics to Photobucket with the app on the phone. Once they're uploaded, select the pic you want to post here on the thread. I'll do a sample

1. The image will look like this on the app. Select the little "i" on the bottom right looks like this. I circled it in red.




2. Then select the last URL from the list. Circled in red. Once you touch it it automatically copies the whole URL for you.






3 You come back here and just paste.



4. If you notice all the images have the "[IMG]" in the beginning and "[/IMG]" in the end.



Then you're done. I posted all these pics using this same process.

Enjoy!!

There we go! Now the pic shows.

The difference between this time and the one before is that the other just shows up as a link to photbucket. Adding the "[IMG]" brackets on the ends posts the pic directly on the thread. Not sure if you're reading the thread thru Tapatalk or straight thru the website, once you see the website directly you'll see the difference.

Either way you got it and it works. The tank looks really good. Love the mix of colors!

Thanks! The tank has been up and running since Feb '09. I mostly buy small corals with a few exceptions. I've had the Duncan's and candy cane the longest, they had 2-3 heads. Now the candy cane has like 15 and the Duncan close to 40. I use to have a real nice huge deresa clam and a beautiful mated clown pair but they were lost this past year. Had to go out of town for week and there was a power outage and one of the surge protectors tripped. my wife didn't notice until it was too late. Lost all my fish, and a few corals.

I run two 14k 250 MH for 6 hours and add a two part supplement once a day. Also feed Rod's food original daily. No refugium plan on adding one this year and maybe upgrade to led's.

Looks good mike, looks well maintained. if you go to the video click on the button that says SHARE, then click on EMBED then copy that html code that is in blue inside the box then simply paste it on here and the video will show up here directly. If you want, no worries link works also.
