Hey All sorry I haven’t posted in a while not sure I posted much in 2017 but anyways last Thanksgiving I decided to stop by Hans’s and get 11 or actually 10 silver pigeons Hans through 11th for free. I got them at 2 1/2” now there about 4”. I still have my other fish too by the way.

Here’s a 6 week update, haven’t taken any measurements but they’re a tad bigger, just power feeding and water changes!115001

Those are very nice! I just bought 13 2 1/2 inchers from Hans the other day. I selected each one a different strain including a silver pigeon. Hope he turns out nice like yours.

I have to agree both of your comments. Hans was super to deal with on email and on the phone. I also love there discus.

That is an excellent group, can't wait to see the final transformation on those. Nice shape and cleaner that many White Butterflies I have seen around.

Thanks SidJones and Pardal! My first group had a lot of ups and downs, 2014-2018 still have some of them but now that I’ve got the hang of it I thought I’d try a single type grow out tank.

Hey Geoff these are amazing looking fish...I posted on your other thread as well...you obviously know what you're doing with raising discus so I mean no disrespect, but I have a question; I just watched your "feeding time" youtube vid...it seems there is a lot of food in the tank...can you tell me how to gauge how much to feed discus? Is it like other fish where you feed what they will consume in 2-3 minutes?
At what point will you move them into a bigger tank?
Thanks mate,

You’re too kind Daniel! I’ll reply in the other thread, I should keep that one interesting for the next 2 months!
