    Eric, really sucks to hear that. Was about to contact you and came across this. Hoping you get back up and running soon. Shoot, need to borrow the RR pair I got from you? I never purposely breed but would love to trade you those two for four-six fry from them. Hang in there boss.

    Just awful, hope you decide to give it another go. You have too much talent to quit, looking forward to placing an order in a few months.

    Eric, this is really heartbreaking. I can't imagine how you are feeling, but I do appreciate how much work went into accomplishing as much as you did. I only hope you can recover from this tragedy and rebuild your hatchery again.... Miranda

    Eric, I'm really sad to hear about this unfortunate event.

    Hang in there, your enthusiasm was always reflected in your discus. I've always enjoyed to see what you produced and I've been tempted to order a few times. I hope I will get that opportunity in a near future.

    Eric, I'm so sorry to read this! I've had fish room disasters in the past and they are gut-wrenching, especially when you have poured your time and effort and love into fish projects that span years. It makes us feel helpless and hollow.

    Take the time to regroup, find a renewed focus and energy, and come back as great as ever. If you need anything at all, please let us know. Do you need a pair or two to play with? Maybe I can find you something kicking around.

    Dear Simply Family,
    We want to than everyone for their best wishes and thoughts....a special thanks to sponsors and admins Al, Kenny, Ryan, Hans, Miranda, and James for the encouragement. After several meetings, we have made the decision to keep going and start over. The funny thing is we are pretty excited about the future and starting from the ground up. We are hoping to start collecting grade A breeding stock in June and offering young again by September. We have some big plans we had been working on and it would be a shame to just throw it all away at this point.

    Thanks again and we will keep you updated as we move forward. It looks like we may have a few pairs off the bat 3 will have 3 of the 45 tanks filled soon ...now its just money and time to get back up and running.

    Thanks again everyone....we truly appreciate the support!
    Regards,
    Eric

    Eric,
    Glad to hear that you are using this tragedy to move on to new projects. I can't wait to see what you and your family work on next.I'm sure we will be seeing some of those home bred fry you are known for back on the market soon. Best wishes always my friend!
