This is a quick tutorial in how to post pictures into a thread at Caudata.org.

First begin to post a message as normal by clicking on "Post thread" or "Post reply." Enter your message text now or after you attach your photos.

To attach the photos scroll down below the text box and below the "Submit" button and past the "Additional Options" green bar. The second boxed area in this section has a button "Manage Attachments," click this. (see image 1 below.)

This will bring up a window which lists maximum sizes for the various types of files that may be uploaded. Make sure your picture meets these requirements, if not please resize them with another program (i.e. MS Paint).

To post pictures from your computer click on one of the "Browse" buttons. Navigate your computer to the picture you wish to upload and select ok on the dialog. (see image 2)

If you want to add a picture from the internet enter the URL into the text boxes without buttons below the "Browse" button boxes.

Click "Upload" on the popup window (the same one with "Browse" or the box for URLs) the image will appear below the uploading box. (image 3)

Now you can exit out of the window by scrolling to the bottom and hitting the "Close this Window" button or by clicking the "X" or red dot in the corner as you would any normal window.

Post your message and your images will be added!

There are two other methods of posting photos available for people who have photos in the their personal albums and in the main photo gallery.

Posting Pictures from your Personal Album
Open the photo you want to post. You'll notice that the beneath the photo is a text box labeled BBCode (see first image below). Copy the contents of this box and post it where you want in the post.

Posting Pictures from the Main Photo Gallery
In the main reply window to the right of the text box and below the smilies is a link that says Images (see second image below). Click on this list to bring up a window that will contain all the images you have posted to the Gallery. Click on one of these images to automatically insert the code into your post.

    And even .25 ammonia is bad what you want for nitrite and ammonia is 0 and .25 for short periods

    @DarthNyQuil, what's your ph? Ammonia is non-toxic at lower ph so might not need to panic, however if you have hard water (think calcium deposits in a tea kettle), you likely have a high pH and thus should be maintaining 0. Either way, use seachem prime to dechlorinate your water and get the added benefit of making ammonia and nitrite non-toxic for 24 hours, the peace of mind is worth it.

    @DarthNyQuil, to cycle more quickly/safely, see if you have a friend or trusted LFS with some filter media you could add to your filter. It will cycle it almost instantly, far better than bottled stuff. Speaking of bottled insta-cycle, some people swear by tetra safe start, although I've never used it myself so can't vouch for it. And finally to make it more safe, feel free to do larger water changes to get that ammonia lower- 90% of the bacteria you're growing is in the filter, 9% on surfaces, and maybe 1%> in the water column. So even a
    100% water change won't really effect the cycle process

    @lvlyvoa, good to hear, np. They love nightcrawlers and worms if you have access to them, they're the healthiest thing they can eat since they're a complete prey

    My axolotls were doing fine until the cycle int heir tank crashed. I currently have them tubbed and they wont stop shedding their slime coat, and my golden albino looks a little red, and his gills dont look too good. Theyre both flaoting and im keeping the tub at 18 degrees celsius and doing 100% water changes everyday, any help on anythingelse? can anyone help?

    @Jaeger I would try to double up on Prime to combat the slime coat shed when doing the 100% water changes. Also, if it's bad, might want to consider a tea bath as a preventive measure.

    Might be the stress, or the shedding bothering it

    Make sure s/he can't jump out, and maybe keep her in a undisturbed, darkened place for a bit. See if that calms the goldie.
