    Default Fish Story

    True story - I was sitting in my recliner in my fish room watching some new discus I picked up yesterday. My breeder tank is with in 4 ft. of my recliner and the male red melon got tangled up in the heater and jumped out of the tank - landed in my lap. After we both recovered everything was good. Good thing I was there. Just a interesting situation on a Sunday afternoon. The tank is now covered.

    OC my San Merahs are not hugging me but I want to hug them. Posted a pic on the OP who was asking how to reduce stress in their tank.

    I saw them Rufus. I think they are the best I've ever seen. Are you going to try to cross them with snow whites?

    As long as they don't jump out of the tank and try to be closer to me! LOL! I have glass tops totally covering all the tanks because I have had jumpers. I learned that a long time ago. The few times it happened to me I freaked out and me and fish were jumping around my living room for a few minutes before I could get him back in. I actually cleaned him off with fresh tap water really quick and threw him back in the tank. He is now about seven inches(blue diamond) and quite an alpha male. Has the most beautiful fins I've ever seen on a discus.
