    Great job Bill! Your discus look great. Looks like some interesting patterns developing. I really like your idea of using a cut-out discus to estimate size.

    Hi Eddie,
    I think the shrimp in the mix brings out the color, especially red.
    I probably should put tuna and salmon in it too.
    Thanks Eddie

    Hi Chad
    I always estimate low on their size but will measure in about another 8 months.
    Thanks Chad
