    It's hard to see you withdraw the contest, but wish you the best for your fish business

    Sucks to hear Drew, but I think we all understand or hope we all can. Best wishes to the new business!

    Thanks for the support guys, I guess my thinking Rick was that the resource pool for reasons of equality should be relatively equal, but I suppose business or not that varies no matter what realistically. I do wish more people had gotten involved period and this competition did mean something to me so I really wish I had another alternative, but with shipments coming in, fish going out, new batches being created (God bless the gift of life right lol), there just wasnt TIME to come up with a solution. And if Im going to do anything Im going to do it right, so I figured if I cant put my all into it then I certainly dont want to be unfair to anyone else in the contest.

    Drew, say it ain't so. OMG I was hoping to see the dark angels in full color and in the finals. But totally understand your reasonings. We might have to talk about the 4 you have. Send me a PM with info when you have time.

    I would think that finishing the competition and possibly winning or finishing strong would be a good PR move on the part of a new sponsor......Much better than a Drewbus Discus-DNF. Just giving you a little bit of grief but still something to consider...

    My fish have always been raised well, valid point though and if it was an option I'd stay in. Jeff ill let you know when I'm ready, if you send me a your zip I can shoot you a quote. It seems most everybody but you understands the reasoning Rick lol. Nah I truly wish I could have stayed, and yes good PR, but so is running an ethical solid business providing quality fish. And I think people get that.

    Understand.

    Tank space is at a premium...and raising 8 fish to adults in subpar conditions is not fun/easy to do.
    I commend you making the difficult decision and being up front with it.

    Someone will snap those up

    THis contests requirement of a long term commitment is a definite hard one to meet for many people. One of the things I hoped this contest would show is just hard it is to raise a group of discus to adulthood..space and time constrants are one of many factors that make it so.

    Sorry to see Drew Bow out, but happy that he gave it a shot and did as well as he could. Best of luck Drew!
