Haha gotta watch out for them shady characters lol. Good to hear you got someone checking up on em for ya. Yea I'm down the bottom here in shitty little Adelaide so don't tend to see a huge amount of nice fish getting around the traps. Got couple of decent discus breeders here tho. A lot of the shop stock here ain't  the best. Really Enjoy seein well shaped plates like yours

Heading to GC this weekend on Sun/Mon... trying to convince wife to stay another day so that we can go to Living Reef on Wed.   They are shut mon/tues.  Might be finally time to fork out some $$$$ myself.    After all the discus were supposed to be for a b'day present in 2016!!!!   Still waiting :(

they are all great started re scaping the 5x2x2 today, driftwood is soaking in the tank, tomorrow hopefully it will be sinking and we will rebag the Anubias, and banana lillies and arrange them on the wood

looking forward to see how it comes out, the Anubias are nearly 2.5ft and the nana lillies are throwing pads out all over the holding tank

should be a treat

I've heard killer whales are ok in with discus?!

Assuming Chicago discus is high on that list. Read some good comments on stock.

we have about 8 places and 2 private residences to visit, so should be pretty cool all way round :)

That sounds bloody awesome. Will be a great experience no doubt.

@timmy82 thanks for the tanks :) 

just in the process of cleaning up the tanks, stripped the 6fter, we are going to spin it around, paint the back blue and I will then drill them all out and get the onto a small system

@Nazegorengand I went hard on the tank tonight and this was the outcome
