    I'm going to make the first offer to My Euro-friends. If one or two of my pairs spawn during that time frame I will donate 20 fry to anyone living in Netherlands, Belgium or Germany and willing to travel to Maastricht to pick them up.

    Al,

    I would be definitely interested.
    I would also be willing to sell fry from the Ring Leopard/Fire Reds for 1/2 price as a donation to anyone entering this contest only. Hopefully this would make it more affordable to some. Could easily have a huge spawn ready to go during month of June/July for anyone wishing to enter.

    That is not what Al's opening post implied.

    Right, I don't think the fish need to come from the same source, strain or anything like that.
    That way people from all over can enter.

    So would you guys be game to allowing me to start this like now. The Tefe pair have a set of wigglers now which should go free swimming today or tomorrow. If they successfully attach could this spawn be part of this contest? Wouldn't it be cool to track a spawn of F1 Tefe from wild parents

    I do have a short video of this spawn.
    Pat, I have no problem with starting this sooner.

    Chad... Thats very generous my friend...thanks for the offer to the hobbyists near you.


    I love that idea Chad, we need all fish in contest come from same source ... and i love your '1/2 price' ... I'm in this one ...
    I think you are misunderstanding my purpose here.. Its not necessary to have them from the same source for this contest. The fish will be judged as if they were at a show.. color, shape, size, pattern etc. This is not a contest to see who can grow the biggest and best from one spawn....... we did that in the first contest., and we did it again in the second. They were great contests.


    This is to see who can take a group of fry from juvie to adult best and have these fish judged as if they were in a show. It also will show what it takes to actually do this, which for all thats often written here... few hobbyists have done. The value in being able watch and learn from this will benefit everyone..People often say they have bred discus... this will give them bragging rights that not only could they breed them, but they could commit longterm and raise them well too. Personally I think there will be alot of people that will finally "get it" as to what works and what doesn't. And I think alot of people will leave the contest feeling like they ran a marathon and were lucky to finish....but for others... like the ones that cross that line ahead of the pack... that'll be one heck of an accomplishment to be proud of.... This will be the IRONMAN/WOMAN of DISCUS Contest!

    Cool idea Al.

    Maybe we can start a list of all the breeders and their location who are going to be entering this contest so non breeders like myself can also pick up some juvies to enter.

    Ryan,

    You're a home breeder yourself, why would you go buy fish from Chad? You could enter this contest with your own fry easily.
