You can put up thumbnails by attaching the picture to the post. There are rules about size that are listed when the window comes up. Most art programs will allow you to resize, compress (by saving as .JPG) and usually crop too.

What kind of camera do you have? SLR or point and shoot. The limitations of the camera will decide which method you should use to take good pictures, although I'd say you're doing quite well already. Flash is the best way to illuminate your fish but if you don't have an SLR it would require some creative thinking to come up with a way to use flash in any way other that in the way Abbey's mom has suggested. I have a Nikon D200 and I use a flash that I hold in my left hand while I hold the camera in my right, in this way I can shoot with the camera directly facing the tank but have the flash held at an angle to avoid the " big white spot" in my pictures. The best way would be to have a camera similar to mine with one or two professional strobes on the top of the tank with a custom softbox that would allow me to just hold the camera and shoot at will, then the light will be " white " or equal to sunlight at all times. The other thing you can do is shoot with available light and use the color manipulation available in photoshop and other programs to " take out the green" Let me know if you have any specific questions in this area. I managed a custom photo lab for 7 years and shot weddings for 15.
Your pictures are already beautiful, Mastering light will help you acheive even better pictures and with less editingkeep playing with the camera, the best part of digital is you can play for the cost of batteries....modify your technique until you find the best combination for you.

Kes, you need to click on your photo, SAVE IT TO YOUR OWN COMPUTER, and from there, upload it to this site so the photo will be in thumbnail size and not slow down naviagtion for those with slow dial-ups.
Your photos are awesome!
