    Default 6/21/09 update

    Man, I don't think that weeks can go by any faster than they are. Things are pretty much on par with the past posts. Still eating all of the usual foods with gusto. They sort of remind me of my lab, minute she sees me she thinks about food. These guys would eat 24/7 if they got the chance. Water parameters are all good. pH 6.8, NH2 and NO2 are both zero. NO3 seems to hover around 3 or so but I put that down to water changes every other day and heavy feedings. I'm trying to figure out a way to get a length on them without taking them out of the water but I may have to resort to that. Anyway, here's some pics for the week. Still messing with the camera settings

    Kirk,

    Looking good brother! I hope the remainder of the year goes this smooth with these guys! IMO it's really been a cake walk so far!

    Best wishes!

    thanks everyone. Seeing all the pics of the 4" discus got me curious what I had. I've got 4 that are very close in size and a couple that are lagging a bit. Pulled one of the larger ones (if not the largest) and he hit 4". Felt pretty good about my regimen. Of course, he then hid for about 2 hours. Guess he didn't appreciate the handling.

    NO3 seems to hover around 3
    That's really good
    Nice clean looking tank too. With the heavy feeding and wc schedule you will have those fish grown up in no time

    Hey Kirk, thanks for the info on the size, it seems like everyone's are growing at a fairly rate. That's sorta why I decided just to wait to measure. They are getting to the size where they should slow down on their growth a bit so I don't expect we will see that one inch per month, not to worry, yours are looking great. Thanks again,

    Bill
