Now it's the time for me to write a thank you note to Kenny. Well...what should I say? You guys have used up all the lines I wanna say, so that there is really nothing new in my comments below :p If you have got bored after reading thousands of positive comments on kenny and his discus, you can ingore the following paragraghs, and just have a look at the pictures and see how well the discus are doing after being tanked for two weeks.:D

Two weeks ago, on a snowy and freezing Saturday morning (I'm in Madison, Wisconsin), a Fedex guy knocked at my door and had the box delivered. As everybody said, it was very well packed and the bags are still warm. All the discus are really the best ones I can imagine or even beyond it. I put all of them in a bucket and started acclimating them. After a while I noticed some fast movements and sound in the bucket. I thought it was just because the new fishies were scared, but you know what, it is actually because the blue scorpion and the white butterfly throwback were fighting in the bucket! :flame: I've never seen any fish doing so great right at the arrival. A few minutes after they being tanked, they started swiming around, and pecking at the tank bottom and my sponge filter. When I stood in front of the tank, they were not afraid at all. A few hours later, I attemptively dig my fingers into the tank, and sth amazing happened: all the discus swam up and around my fingers! I know it's hard to believe, even myself did not believe what I saw either, but I'm telling you the truth. Maybe my fingers look like or smell like Kenny's :p

During these two weeks, the discus were doing better and better. I tried to feed them FBW, beefheart mix, tetrabits, and dried bloodworm. The fishies are happy with all of them. They always remind me of those oscars I had years ago whenever I watch them eating.:D

The experience is so great and way beyond my expectation. Personally I wouldn't regard Kenny and his help on ordering and keeping discus as fish dealer and costomer service, as these words are too commercial that underrate Kenny's great work. In my mind, Kenny is a trustworthy friend, and also my mentor for discus. Everybody knows Kenny is a busy man, but he is always so kind and patient whenever talking on the phone, and his suggestions are always helpful (Kenny I owe you a dozen of checks for those tricks you taught me :p). You know once a hobby becomes a profession, things can become tedious and tiresome. But from the talks with kenny, I can always feel his strong interest and passion on discus, which is not easy.

Well, all in all, Kenny you did such a great job again. If you keep doing things like this, maybe one day people will see your name in the history books of discus.

Here I also want to say thank you to Forrest for bringing in discus at such high quality every month. You and Kenny are simply the best.

-Xiaofei :D

Those are some great looking fish and as everybody else says "Do we expect anything less then an A++++++++++++." I hope you enjoy them because hopefully I will get my order with him soon.

Xiaofei: That was an awsome summary of your great experience with Kenny. He is just great, there really is no other word for it. My experience with his Blue Diamond was exactly the same...it was eating within 20 minutes of being plopped into the QT...and it was eating everything out of my hands. No matter how many fish you get from Kenny...he treats you exactly the same, with patience and respect that make you feel like a valued friend.

Your blue fish are really very nice (I am partial to blues). I like the high fin shapes a lot!

I really like the TSS and BS. They look good! Glad everything is working out for you. Kenny is an awesome guy and even took the time to talk to me on the phone a while back knowing I wasn't gonna be ordering from him, yet (hopefully).

You can find the pricelist in the Dec. shipment for sale thread. Dunno if he can ship to canada, but you can ask him directly. Kenny is a very nice and approachable man.

Thanks Mike for your greetings! It's such a surprise to see Chinese Pinyin here! :D Were you also from China?

No, I am ethnically Chinese, but I was born here in the US. I know Chinese because I spoke it at home as I grew up, and my parents insisted that I took intensive Chinese and Classical Chinese when I went off to college. That's why I know pinyin, or kinda still remember it.

Awesome looking fish, you are doing well with them. I love the WB throwbacks and the blue scorpions are growing on me.

Ha I see. Xin Nian Kuai Le!:D

I'm a big fan of blue fish too! I'm so glad that Kenny still import high quality blue fish at a time when they are no longer as popular.

When I was at Al's last a few weeks ago, he has some very nicely shaped blue scorpion juvies and I almost got some. But in the end, I decided to stick with just one strain, and that's the blue diamonds. Both these strains are beautiful to me....I like the patterns and the shape of your fish in the first picture. mike
