    Unfortunately the album is on a site that doesn't work at the moment, guess that is the problem.
    Hope to get them back on soon.

    Alex

    The Face book works perfectly and that is where some of the photos are.

    Looks like you have solved all the problems now certainly a lot better than the Face book photos

    Absolutely breathtaking... I love all the red plants. And the new aquascape is so much more aesthetically pleasing.
