    Not done with this thread but I will say with the move to new house, taking on start up while still doing full time job... this group has not been successful as a whole.

    That said, I AM making my situation so I can get better than ever with WC routine, WC quality, and more (but still with planted). I DO plan to grow a seperate group in BB... but also want to get those 3Rs to either pair up together or with other brown based (or the Heckle cross) in order to raise homegrown group (and continue the lineage of the last Forrest discus from Kenny... still can't get over it... beautiful story from fella who shared story about Kenny checking himself out of hospital to do his shipment... I NEED one of those 3Rs to multiply).I have my own garage now (MY own :P ... not shared with wife... she has the other garage) --- so I'll have several grow outside in garage during 9 months of year and move (if need be) those to interior for 3 months if need be... yet my garage has excellent heating and is insulated (sorry... I just can't believe we got lucky with new house... we NEVER HAD EVEN ONE GARAGE !!!)

    Meanwhile, hate to say it, but probably giving my wife that PB (that Mac's Discus piece of.... sent me when it was supposed to be a RR... HUGE difference) ... along with the random generic, POS turqs he sent me... to my wife's classroom aquarium (where they'll probably die... I don't want them back.... but if someone wants PB, she's actually a really good female... I just don't like PBs)

    Good luck with the 3Rs. Would be so touching if they did multiply. Do you have pictures of the PBs or turqs? I am in the market for some nice discus

    Shan, I'll send pics brother. To be honest, decent-to-good shape on all 3 Turqs but PB is great shape yet only about 5.25" (she's still growing though... noticeably which is strange for me). PB is just plain light orange with VERY light peppering on extreme edges of shape (very light... but BBC I'm just not a PB dude... yet PB females have been the most consistent mothers in a dag-gone community tank ... when I don't care usually to raise little ones... yet those mothers have been ferocious).

    My brother may head to our parents house soon in Newport News so if you want, I'll give them to you boss

    Thanks Shan!!!!! Trying to figure out the perfect hinges for those front doors. About ready to put them on. I can get my Sump in without having them off so I'm going to go ahead and start putting them on. Hopefully within a month I will have the sump going. Trying to balance fixing my outboard motor and continuing with all of the plumbing I have been doing on the big tank! Eventually I will have a flip up door on front of canopy so I don't need to use a stool to lift the top wooden access. The top of the tank (minus canopy) is about 6'3"-6'4". No more squatting! And I will add a little more sand when taking out big rocks on the right. They were there to sink some of the wood. I'll use various sized, but smaller, river stones to hold sand slope on right side once done.

    Plants are starting to gain speed on growth. They'll fill it in more over the next 6-7 months (I'm low tech). Anubias has never grown as fast for me as it is now!
