I ordered my first discus fish from Kenny and let me tell you he made it all very easy! He was recommended to me by Debbi aka pinkertd on the AC forum. I was first emailing him my questions and what type of strains to get etc etc... And he replied to all my emails very promptly! I finally called him up and placed my order on Wednesday and VOILA I received my fish today Friday at 10:26 am and thanks to Kenny's walkthrough in acclimating them the day before they were in my tank my 11:45 :)

The packaging was absolutely perfect. It couldn't get any better than that. Quadruple bagged and wrapped in newspaper so the fish wouldnt be stressed in a styrofoam box in another cardboard box with a heat pack! And the heat pack was still warm! I am speechless. I even had trouble with all those rubberbands :) And there were no leaks anywhere!

And at 12:26 pm EST lo and behold Kenny calls me up and follows up on the shipment making sure that everything is ok! Now thats what I call service deluxe! Above and beyond the call of duty I say. He also gives me a couple of tips on feeding them and taking care of them for the first few days.

Thanks a lot Kenny I have learned so much from you and you have made my first discus aquisition and getting into this hobby a lot of fun and stress free!
Guys I must say you can never go wrong ordering from Kenny. And he threw in two asian airstones. Sweet!

Also did I mention that the fish were absolutely beautiful! I am so lucky he handpicked the strains that I wanted and gave me the biggest and most beautiful ones in his tanks. It's great!

Bravo Kenny! Was a pleasure doing business with you!

Here are some pics I took with my balckberry phone... quality might not be as good: so in Chronological order i call this from BOX to BUCKET!

Marl - I'm so thrilled you got some of Kenny's fish, and yes, he is "Da Man"!:D
Wait until you see how much you're not getting done around the house now that you're going to be enthralled and hypnotized, sitting in front of the discus tank watching them!

Kenny my friend, long time no talk. Hope things are well with you! As always, you're fish are amazing! Mine are all doing fabulously!!! They are just awesome beautiful giants. And no, I haven't traded my couch for another large tank.....yet! ;) But I have increased the number of tanks I keep to 5! Take care!

Hey y'all, got my fish from Kenny this morning and all I can say is WOW, again. Very nice and they look happy and hungry in their tank, swimming all over. I am broke and out of space for a while but I love watching and caring for these beauties. Thanks again Kenny, for a very special, and excellent order.

Well I'm stocked now so all the new fish are for you guys!! I'm feeding them some beefheart, I want to see if they go for it. They eat formula 1 & 2 flakes and Tetra crisps and FBW's of course. Just some beefheart to add meat to the diet, no CBW's any more for my fish due to cost and health.

Its like Noah's ark except for discus only and only one of each... :D Went down to my fish room today and found a suicide jumper, I flipped as I thought it was from my new "Kenny" batch, turned out to be a plain turq. from another source, must have flopped around to get near my Q. tank. Whew..........

I have 5 tanks Kenny, but only one the show tank with the discus. And as you know, that tank is chock full! I have my "herd" of 42 sidthimunkis (dwarf chain loaches) that I am hoping will spawn for me when they are mature enough. That's only been done once anywhere in the world! I am also breeding wild pygmy cories, celestial pearl danios and raising up some new longfin L144 blue eyed albino plecos to breed. And a small tank of otos ready to spawn! Keeps me busy and keeps the hobby fun for me. Take care Kenny!
