    WOW !
    That was very, very nice !
    Great video !
    You did such a wonderful job with those fish, and they turned out just beautiful.
    Do you still have all of them ? Have any paired up ?
    What are your plans for their futures ?

    Hi B thank you very much for your response.
    As l mentioned earlier, l had plenty of highs and a few lows through out the challenge.
    My biggest low was when l decided to split the group, and put half of them in my planted community tank. This was because l felt the challenge tank was getting over crowded with their rapid growth.
    I don't really know what went wrong from there, but the remaining fish became very timid and started thrashing around. After a few of them died, l put a couple of them back there to balance things out, and lost more fish.
    The only two challenge fish l have left are the two that remained in the planted tank after that move.
    Till this day they are happy there and are starting to show signs of pairing up.
    The future?....well they are in the planted tank in our living room, and l am just happy watching them.
    If they do pair up a lay eggs there, l will think about setting up the challenge tank once again, and attempt to hatch and raise some fry....that will be my next challenge!

    Hi Ya Joe....I haven't been able to get on the forum much. Work and other things. I just saw this thread. That was an amazing video bud!! A great tribute to the generosity of Darren and Al, and reflecting on what a great community this really is!

    Kudos to you!!

    Hi Ya Mark... That's cool mate.
    My hobbies keep me sane and are a good diversion from other things...mainly work.
    If l remember correctly, you also took delivery of some of the challenge fish from form Al? It would be great to see how they have come along too.

    Darren and Al are a good example of giving, generous, people. Not just because they gave away some discus, but always willing to give a helping hand. And together with many other good people here on 'Simply Discus' is why this forum is Grand!

    Mark, thanks for your support along to way to mate.
