Hi Simply friends,

First of all I wish you all had a great Christmas with all your families and friends.:) I was finally able to spend some time with my dad, sister(baby girl on the way in a month:)), bro-in-law together during this holidays! Just don't overate like I did as I over-consumed the many prime-rib and fried egg rolls on the dinning table...because of that I am now having some real sore throat lol.

I can ship Fedex or Southwest Next Flight Guarantee. Feel free to call for any questions at (650) 290-1283 or email at kennysdiscus@sbcglobal.net

These fish are doing great right now and it's been a week since I received them from Forrest. They will continue to be quarantined for another 7-10 days before going to their new homes. Because of possible shipping delay issues between Christmas and New Year I will start shipping them out after Jan 1st.

Here's are some pics I took yesterday and tonight after WCs. There aren't any lighting fixture on any of my tanks it's why some pictures looked a little dim(depends where the tanks sit). I will be installing their tank lights shortly and I think I need a DSLR badly lol.:)

Hi friends,

Tonight after WC and during feeding times I took some last photos of Forrest's fish that will be shipped out shortly in the next few days...I would like to share them with you here.

I've been feeding them multiple times daily with mainly BH/Shrimp mix and frozen bloodworms and they love it!:) Forrest, this might be the last time you can see them in my tanks lol...say "bye"?:p

I'm starting to fall in love with the hi-body spotteds, I might keep a few just to see how they'll turn out. Thanks Forrest for such beautiful work, imo especially their hi body shapes.(I actually took more shots at them than others lol but they're all nice)

Here are the pics, hope you'll like them and there are plenty of them.:) They are Forrest's Flamingos F3, WBs, WSs, BDs, Rose Reds, hi-body leopards, hi-body leopard Snakeskins, Golden Leopards, Penang Eruptions, etc...(I forgot what else are in there lol)

sorry for hijacking..but..same fish..different country. these guys are well travelled. malaysia, california and canada. far more travelled than little ole me.lol.

These remaining "standing-egg" LSSs and Leopards from Forrest's last shipment are growing by leaps and bounds and they eat very well. They seem to be developing higher and higher body shapes and I kinda like that. They love the BH/prawns mix that I give to them twice a day.:)

Here are some updated pics of them...they are really quite round.:p

their 2nd meal of the day, Hikari FBWs. They were really after it.:p Sometimes I wonder how could their little stomachs store that much food...:D
