Hi! You can add photos in a number of ways:

1) You can upload the images to an image hosting site such as Photobucket. Get the URL of the image, then in your post here on the forum click the "Insert Image" button and paste in the URL of your image. It will then display in your post wherever it was inserted.

2) If you click "Add New Post" (or "Go Advanced" underneath the quick reply box down below the posts in the thread) it will take you to the regular page for adding a new post. There, you'll see a paperclip button that allows you to upload pictures as attachments to your post directly from your computer, which is easier since you don't have to put them on an image hosting site.

3) Up at the very top of the page you'll see a link for your "Aquarium Log." Clicking this takes you to your Aquarium Log page, where you can add all of the aquariums you have and fill in all kinds of information for them. There, you can also upload photos and even video of your tanks directly from your computer. To see someone's aquariums, just click the "Aquariums" tab that appears below a member's name next to any post he's made to see a list of the tanks he has in his aquarium log, along with thumbnail versions of pictures for those tanks. Clicking the tank names or thumbnails opens up a new page with the detailed Aquarium Log info for that tank.

I took a look at the website, but everything that I see for a difference would be hidden under the shell... not visible by just looking at them...??

She's acting like she's hurt, and I have her seperated from the rest, but what I don't understand, is why my biggest females are leaving the tank, and getting hurt or killed. I have the tank covered, but now I've had to put some extra weight, to keep my snails in.

Does anyone know why snails would leaving the tank?
This was actually the post I was referring to when I asked the question about sexing the snails... I'm still wondering how you know which are male vs female?

Sorry Konstargirl, I didn't realize there were actually 2 separate topics running in this one thread, just remembered reading this post and wondering...

Why are my eggs dying?

My one batch of eggs died, and now I'm worried about my new batch. It's been over 5 weeks, and they still aren't hatching. Is there a certain thing you have to do to take care of the eggs?
