    The first is a poor quality photo, but it actually does represent the feeding frenzy called "breakfast", lol...

    They're all doing great.

    I'm not sure if they've slowed their growth rate, or if Smalls is on a spurt, but it seems to be catching up!!

    Thanks everyone. At times, I think these discus have peaked, but they are always getting better!!!

    I don't think I ever thought they peaked mate, but they are definitely getting better and better. The roundness and thickness remind of really nice Piwow's actually...

    Not much new to report, although I did get a little busy/lazy and skipped 3 days on the water change. They weren't showing any ill behavior, but they sure did perk up after an 80% water change Maybe it's because they know they always get a belly full of BH after every WC, lol...

    I have to admit, before I even received them way back when, I had planned on raising them in kind of an experimental way and I'm glad I did not. With the distractions I've experienced, the experiment would have been a failure. And that would be a shame because I really like all of them!!

    I was toying with the idea of raising them in a planted tank using UG filtration. I had great success years ago with UG and had been reading up on people using it today, although it's considered out dated and can cause issues. I decided against UG all together because of the number of prolonged power outages my area experiences.

    I'm hoping to be finished with the remodeling project soon, so when I transfer them I will take a measurement...
