    Attachment 83852Attachment 83853Attachment 83854Attachment 83851Dear Simply members
    We hope everyone is well! 2014 has been a great year so far for us and we couldnt have done it without the support we get here at Simply Discus! Many of you have asked to know more about who we are, our set up, and what we are working on....posting more often with updates is something we have made the committment to do...
    So here we go......

    This is Hannah....she handles the day to day running of things while Eric (Daddy) is on the road including all updates, posting, answering basic PM's, water changes, feeding, and basic maintenance. She is mommy to Miles and expecting Sophia in January!!!!

    She is working on the Super Tropical Red tank........

    This is Eric... he focuses on selecting, breeding, and raising of the discus. He is Hannah's Daddy and started Carolina Discus many years ago.

    This is one of our newset groups of young adults that have just started pairing up. They are royal blues and come from wild stock..it looks like we have 4 pairs that have/are forming...they have great shapes and bright red eyes...they darken to an almost chocolate background with neon blue stripes...some show spotting.

    Hey Eric, thanks for sharing with us. Very cool that your family shares the hobby with you.

    Those Royal Blues are gorgeous. Do you know if they are wild/domestic crosses or direct from wild parents? F1/F2?

    Thanks Ed....thanks, your shipment is getting ready for their trip!

    Hi Larry...thanks for the feedback....we dont have any definate details on the background of the Royal Blues...we believe they were a project of one of the breeders and was scrapped due to them not developing into what the goal was...we first thought they were a cross between wild browns and red turquoise but sevral people who have looked at them in pics believe they could be from a wild green x wild blue crossing...there are some spotting on the bodies as well. Sorry we cant be 100% accurate but we often have to work with the info given. The males are fertile even in harder water and they show good parenting skills...

    Hi Marnie..thanks for the feedback...its always a pleasure working with you
