Hope everyone is well. I have finally moved some new pairs to their tanks and are starting to work them for spawns. Thanks for patience of those who have PM'ed me to show pics....I have been swamped and I am a horrible picture taker:)
I have the worse angles and reflections !!! (Well that is what Matt is for..to take thoise great pics!!!!)

First a few thank you's:

- Al...I appreciate all your long hours (and headaches) to make this site possible...

- I would like to thank Matt for helping me get a pair of Pinow RT's. Thanks for parting with a few of your awesome fish.

- A huge thanks goes out to Kenny and Forrest for all their help and support over the years. I cannot recommend Kenny enough and appreciate his friendship and patience...I am VERY picky on shapes and he and Forrest never disapoint...their quality speaks for itself.

Ok ...here are a few new pairs....

Beautiful pairs. I'm a bit partial towards the ring leopards but they're all beauties! and I can't wait to see pics of the albino red covers.

Eric I have never been so happy as to here you are back at business. Although I have taken a break from discus I always loved talking with you and learning from you. bought many schools from you and formed some great looking pairs. I will direct everyone I know to you as I have in the past while you still where selling. I sent them Kenny's way while you where away, because he to is a great Discus person to talk to and learn from. I know you bought a lot form him too. You both helped me many time and its been some time, but I will never forget.

congrats on being back in business. Hope family is well and business booms in both markets.

Thanks everyone for the kind words....
Right now these are my breeding stock I am starting to work with ...some of the pairs I will release as I get multiple pairs of each strain as I only have so much tank space to work with...
The albino cobalts had about 20 fry on their backs but I lost them...getting closer each spawn...
have nice batches of wigglers with the SCBP's and the straight lines Red Turquoise from Forrest on the cones today that should be on the parents backs today or tomorrow....
new pairs forming from the Penang Eruptions and Eruption leopards that I need to start working with....

I will post more pics as things progress....
Thanks again
