    They look wonderful Chuck and all seems to be going very well. Also at this time you have get some cool parent/fry shots. Here's what I mean. I will remove these if you wish since this is your thread. Just let me know?

    Super Chuck, now aim for a clean background and a little more light if possible?

    Fry on parents is a sight that we addicts never get tired of seeing.

    Last night I had to remove the parents from the tank due to a bit of aggression from the female and did not want to take a chance leaving the male.. The positive is they were eating on their own, brine shrimp and some of Ken's High Protein Fry Green Granule .5 mm. Also just placed an order for Discus Chow Fry Starter 0.8mm to see if I can get them to start on it. They are 17 days since free swimming so I think they are going to be ok.

    Chuck, have you try feeding beefheart shavings, it's a good filler in place of the bbs.
