Discus-Lost Willpower & gave in to Visual Temptation !

Well, after recently viewing a new shipment of gorgeous Forrest discus, I decided to abandon my single strain effort & jumped right in to a "duet" strain project of Red Snake Skins & Royal Ruby Reds. Couldn't resist after seeing a group of great-looking young 3 R's, and thought ..... ah, what the h..l, let's go for it & see how good the color contrast of these 2 strains is when they both develop their true mature colors. The obviously relaxed, but feisty & outgoing 3 R's were right at home in their new digs 15 minutes after adding them to the tank.
Have a look-see:

very nice contrast on those fish. You can upload photos onto here relatively easy, you do realize? by doing this [ I M G ] Image URL [ / I M G ] spaces removed. Planted tank has image hosting as long as the file size is small enough. pretty simple and its easier for us to view it..

Interesting - I'd like to try it - but my tech skills are limited.
Do I simply post, or thread, on planted tank, and add to my message this way: (IMG)Image(the URL)(IMG) ? How do I do this ? Thanks.

Once you click on a picture in your photobucket album, there are several links on the side or bottom of the picture (Email & IM, Direct link, HTML code, IMG code). Copy the IMG code, (highlight the entire line of code, right click it, and click copy) Than start pasting them here. You can even Add all of the pictures to your first post by clicking the edit button on the bottom right of your first post.

Thanks, I'll try & digest this carefully, see if I'm fairly sure what I'm doing, & give it a try.
