    I believe this is an Albino Golden - Not sure. Definitely from Lawrence Soon - Got it from Chicago Discus.

    From Chicago Discus - Not sure the strain - Coolest little fellow. He was tiny when he came - 3" max. He is at least 5" now, and stands up to the biggest bullies.

    I may be in a minority, but I actually really like the visual look of the half black discus. (I know not literally half black, but what I've always called them)

    I like the half moons - My wife loves them. I lost 1 of them to a bacterial infection last December that I misdiagnosed and did not treat it in time. That was a huge disappointment. The one I have left is a super cool fish. S/he gets along great with the others and has a wonderful appetite. It has a high body (taller than longer), and opens its gills super wide to breathe. When I first got it, I thought it was sick and having a hard time breathing. After several treatments, it did not get better, but other than that, the fish appeared quite healthy. Here is a close up of it.

    Thank You Sir - I appreciate it. What you are seeing here are the success stories. I have not begun to share the tribulations that I've gone through. In the end however, both hobbies are very fulfilling.

    A Snow White Albino. A little out of focus, but I like the color contrast.

    Do not kid yourself, you take some awesome pictures of your nice looking fish.

    Rick - I checked out the photography section - Very nice. Lots of really good knowledge there. I signed up to test drive a Pentax

    Thanks for directing me there.

    Akili:

    Thank you sir, I very much appreciate your kind words, though I have to tell you, there are some pretty nice fish and some pretty nice pictures floating (swimming) around this site. I would consider myself but a beginner in this neighborhood.
