Dont feel dumb, I too had issues uploading photos when i first joined this forum, took me a while to get how it works.
 
I followed that link I linked in my earlier post, that solved it for me at the time. It is easier than you think really.
 
But I have heard folks who use tablets or iPads having issues uploading photos apparently, perhaps that may be something to do with what is happening with you?
 
Much easier if you use your laptop or PC to see how you can upload pics, then later try with ipad or tablet and smartphones etc.

yay, nice one, you have figured out the uploading pics part ;)
 
Thats not a bad set up really, though i need to ask, are these female betta splendens?
 
Looks like there is 4 or maybe 5 bettas in that pic?
 
If so, then I got to be the bearer of bad news, 5 gal tank is pretty much good for just one betta splenden :/
 
If you want a betta sorority, then imho at least a 15 gal long tank with lots of plants and broken lines of sights is a much better option for a sorority really.
 
"Bettas are extremely aggressive toward their own species. Male bettas should not be kept with another betta, ever. They will fight to the death."
 
And

"Female bettas can only be kept with other female bettas if a variety of conditions are met. Bettas, including female bettas, are solitary, territorial fish, which are more at home in individual tanks. If housed together, females must be kept in groups of four or more in an appropriately sized tank (ten gallons or larger) that has a lot of plants (silk or live) and a lot of hiding places. Keeping more than four female bettas together helps diffuse the aggression. A sorority set-up is not natural for the bettas, though convenient for the keepers, and they must be monitored closely. Some female bettas are just too aggressive to be kept in a sorority, even if the suggested guidelines are followed. It is important to keep an eye on such a set-up to make sure the bettas are safe and happy. It is recommended that only experienced betta keepers attempt a sorority."

Yea, another topic in this topic:
What fish should I put in there, remember its a 5gallon. because when those bettas move and the cherrys and algae eater, its empty but itll eventually have more plants. the tank setup (as is now) is about 1 week old, so what should be in it next? shrimp?
