    Good observation Willie.
    Things Bryan is doing is clearly showing on the fish.
    I like his idea on not feeding frozen beefheart too soon but go with beefheart flakes (keeps water cleaner and no choking problems)
    I also like the idea on keeping lights 24/7 with 86temp, I keep mine at 84.
    If not for Bryan’s fish doing the talking I would not have agreed with lights being on 24/7 being a good thing. I would think that it will stress them more. But clearly it’s not doing that I guess ..

    I hope it wasn't one of the good ones. IME it is generally the best that bites the dust when a fish I care about dies.

    Just catching up with the threads in the contest after a 2 weeks break. Excellent observations and informations on growing fry in your thread Willie .
    I'm sorry about your jumper , but try not to worry about all of them Individualy because at the end of contest as I recall , your best one is the only one that counts.
    And like you already said , this is a marathon , not a Sprint .
    ....Off I go now to visit other contestant threads .

    Yup. It was either the biggest or second biggest. Oh well, Willie

    Since we started theorizing in this thread.

    Willie, you have great observation! out of experience, how late in life can a discus start/finish developing the nice frontal curve before we consider it to be stunted?

    So, non of my fry looked like Bryan's with the nice oval forehead; mine had the sharp > look. however, following Bryan's thread, as well as some of the other contestants, I've noticed in just 3 weeks that my fish have grown tremendously and all but one has developed the nice oval shape. I have my Alanquer nearing 3inches and I believe he's developing a nice shape now. I've noticed the same thing happened to my tiger turq in the main tank. It seemed like an Overnight change; after 5 months with the fish, he developed this curve and he finally lost his stress bars. I thought it was a new fish in my tank.

    I'm late to the tread but,thanks Willie for your observations, this is interesting and thought provoking. I love these grow out contests especially one starting with very young discus as they are a great learning experience for both participants and followers. Thanks Al !!!

    Cheers,

    Fred
