    Thank you Lilly. Two things I know for sure. First, I would never be I'm and have what I have today without United States. Second, I would never gone this far with discus without Simplydiscus.

    Thank you Pat for your wishes. We haven't gone anywhere without them. They are growing fast and I can't believe they are almost teen. I remember changed diapers and prepared infant milk for next daycare yesterday. We are facing next stage soon.

    Tony, with all the dedication you have for family, friends, and discus, it's not surprising you have been so successful in everything you do.
    I know there have been a lot of ups and downs with keeping discus but you never gave up. Now you are rewarded with lots of frys.
    Keep up the good work. I can't wait until the day your garage is full of breeder tanks for all the pairs that will form soon.....

    No we did not. We did other activities like snorkeling, kayak, board paddle, horseback riding, Polynesian culture... Maybe next time we'll go there.
    Thanks Cliff

    A really moving story, Tony. I have two close friends who also left Vietnam for the US by boat. I cannot imagine what all of you went through, I doubt that I would have had the fortitude. My hat is off to you!

    And some very nice discus!

    Best,

    Ron

    Tony, these pictures will not work the way they are linked. Best to download them to your computer and upload them to Simply.
