Got my order today, Kenny is the man! The package arrived in great condition, no bumps or bruises and all the water was where it was supposed to be, not a drop outside of the inner most bag. Acclimated the fish and got them in the tank and they are now swimming around happily.

Quality of the fish is top notch. When i first peeked into the bags as i was getting them out i noticed that even these 3-4" fish were THICK! They look great, round and good colors. Kenny was great to deal with as well, easy to talk to and his customer service is top notch. I'll post pics of the fish themselves a little later when they settle in some more. Here are pics of the shipment itself...

Thanks again Kenny!

Oh the suspense....

Yes I have to agree, Kenny is a great guy to deal with. He knows his stuff and is always willing to help. I ordered 3 from his August shippment and they are looking great! Kenny makes you feel really comfortable in making sure you get what you want and does the best job I've seen in packing discus. I hope to order some more from him.

By the way you have some nice fish on your hands!

The "bottle looking things" are air diffusers that are very nice looking and all the rage is Asia. Like an airstone except its made of plastic. Its a present from Kenny to his customers, just another nice touch from a class guy.

You won't be disappointed! They ate last night, only being in the tank for a matter of hours, healthy happy fish! And are tearing up my beefheart and bloodworms now.

Just to further boost Kenny's packing skills, this is what i got.....and i only had 8 bags. ;) Ok well those 8 bags were all triple or quadruple bagged....

Hi Matt, those are some great shots they show the fish very well. I'm glad you like the "Happy Face" Penang I selected for you...got to make you happy ya know?:) And what's up with all the intact rubber bands Matt did you untie them one by one lol? You should cut the bags open my friend!!! :D:D:D:D Thank you Matt.

Francis, glad they arrived there yesterday safely!:) Upon arriving they might look a little pale but their true color should come back within a couple days. I'll be looking forward to seeing updated pictures of them and please keep me posted as they get used to their new Canadian home in the next few days. Thank you Francis!:)

Thanks everyone for the kind comments!

Awsome fish with great bodies and such cute little faces. I think Kenny has a great eye for what a "good looking" discus should look like. I am always amazed by the quality of the fish...it's unbeatable. I need to get a bigger house so that I can start another tank for my baby blue diamonds!!!!! mike

Eventually huh!!! Remember guys Kenny's Discus bags need to be cut open with scissors not untying by hand lol...that's my disclaimer from now on...:D:D:D:D

I thought it was about time i updated this. ;) You can scroll back through and see how much they've changed. These WB Throwbacks are some of my favorites, by far the most personable discus i've owned. Very clean too, with great red eyes! :)

This is what the White Butterfly Throwbacks look like currently. The female is at the center of every photo, and has the best shape of the group. 2 have already attempted to breed but still to young to do anything.

Hello Matt,

Thanks for the update those WB throwbacks seem to have patterned up nicely in a couple months. You're doing a great job and remember all credits only go to your hard work and contiguous feedings and WC's!:) All the best with them Matt and keep me posted whenever possible my friend!

Thanks everyone for the kind comments.:)
