    The NADA Show really tied me up keeping me from taking pictures, videos or updating. I have been gone on two separate week long vacations and the first spawn has really suffered. I knew they would but not much to do about it. The last spawn I showed in a video before NADA never attached. Came home from NADA on Monday to a fresh spawn. I removed the sponges and dropped the water to the adults and I put a light on one side of the tank.

    Wow, those are beauties! Good luck.

    You're the third now I know of to report coming home to spawns after NADA. We need to go away more often.

    I`m a little late offering my compliments to you, Larry.

    You`ve accomplished something with your beautiful wilds that many others before you have tried but been quite unsuccessful with, based on the many accounts I`ve read over the years.

    Bravo - I admire your determination & good work.

    Gorgeous pair, Larry! Congratulations. What a nice sight the beautiful parents swimming with the fry. It is funny, but my first wild discus spawn happened when I was on vacation. Sometimes they just wait for us to get our of their way to get busy

    Promised Liz an update. The spawn ended up at around 100 fry and they have done great. At around 18 days the pair made it very obvious that the fry needed their own tank so I moved them into a 75. The pair have recovered nicely and should be about ready to spawn again.

    Ah, yes. That was what I was wanting to see. You have a couple of Apostos in with them. Too cool. I know that if it didn't work you wouldn't do it, but don't they out compete the baby discus for food.

    Thanks, Mr. Bugg.

    Lol, I needed their tank and I have another pair that have juvies. Actually they are one of my other two entries. So I moved them to the grow out tank for lack of a better place to put them right now. There are two of them and 100 juvie discus so I'm not worried about a eating issue.

    The multitudes had the advantage....

    You are lacking tank space in your beautiful new fish room? How can that be? Never mind. That has happened to me too many times for me to mention.

    I think I have mentioned this before but the size of the fish house was intentional. I want this to remain a hobby............not work, so I'm limited to the size of the building. Depending on what I'm working with I have lots of room or am out of room on a fairly regular basis. Right now the angels that I kept for my next generation of breeders have matured and I have 6 possible and proven pairs in their own tanks. I also have 4 discus remaining from a group of grow outs and wouldn't you know it they are now two new proven pairs. As soon as I get sorted out which of these I'm going to keep then those tanks will be freed up again. It's a cycle.

    A never ending cycle. There is never enough room regardless of how large the fish house.
