    A short conclusion from my experience, breeding and raising fry is not simple that people think but if you have the right tools like water changes, tank space, time…..that makes it easier. It requires lot of patience which need you to be calm and plan out everything before jump into it. This will help to prevent lot of accidents/headache along the road. It also requires discipline and commitment which need you to do water changes regularly especially at early stage can't skip a day of WC (just my opinion). This is a harder than patience part because most of us have family, school, works and other things to take care daily. So you need to add water changes/maintenances on top of your schedule. You have to do WC even you're sick and busy with something. So it's better and really help if you have easy water change routine. As far as food, it’s good to feed them varieties foods and I feed them my mixed BH, flakes, Al’s FDBW, Frozen Bloodworm (treat only). I made 1 mistake which I switched BH mixed too quick because I was under impression power feed them and good food. They were off new food couple days and switched too quick.

    Before I kept all easy maintenance fish and did not know much about discus. That's why i chose my user name MKD stands for Monster Keeps Discus that means the monster with tiny brain serves his king. We all have to start from somewhere and this place (SIMPLYDISCUS) is a great place to start with so many great experts who are willing to help. If I can do it you can do it.

    What the adventure!!! It’s fun and lot of experiments. This is my last update for this contest, it’s time to move on to next chapter. They’ll join in with my current stock and will see if they pair up or doing anything for me. I can't believe it that i make it to the end. I want to thank SimplyDiscus giving me this opportunity, what a great experience and learned a lot from it and this site. I also want to thank everyone's comments and supports.

    thank you guys. Oh man!!! the hard part for me is don't have enough (never ) tank space and can't mix with any other fish. But it's all good, I took that as commitment and water change as discipline.



    David - Im planning to add them to my Alex Turq and Forest Thickline but will keep you in mind.
