Hi!
Sincerely hoping you are well! I thought I'd pop in and tell you I finally got the Safari pictures up. They are taken at Pilansberg National Park. The lion and rhino photos are the best I've taken yet. Its a fine day with clear skies and sunshine. Should make for a lovely weekend. We celebrating Freedom Day here in South Africa. On Sunday we mark the day the new administration was voted into power after the apartheid regime, so its very close to our hearts. Its called Freedom Day and because it falls on a Sunday the Monday thereafter is also declared a holiday! So I'm quite excited about it! take care mate! Cheers! Stokes

Greetings!
You're welcome! I forgot to mention that you should keep at least three of them together, unless you're breeding them, as they are schooling cichlids. There are several books you could look at buying, there are good books available from Amazon.com at a good price. The Jack Wattley Books are excellent, but I do have another reference, by Thomas Giovanetti and Oliver Lucanus. It would be wise if you check these books out before committing to discus. Its better the devil you know, as they say. Good luck and a vote for you too! Cheers! Stokes

Cont...
Red turquoise is an easy strain, yet beautiful and hardy. Blue and green types are a little more demanding of water quality and foods. The main factors are space as they grow big, you should allow 10 gallons to an average sized discus, clean water, they do not tolerate high nitrates well, a mature tank, not ammonia or nitrite spikes, a variety of foods, pellets, flake, bloodworms, mysis, brineshrimp etc, water changes of 40% twice a week, peaceful tankmates, discus are easily freaked by aggressive and lively types. They also eat slowly, so fish taht gobble up food are not good tank mates. Hope this helps! Cheers! Stokes

Greetings!
You're welcome! Well, it depends on whether you're going for wild discus or the domestic strains. With wild discus you will initially have to mimic their water parameters and its only experts that keep them. Discus bred in your locality are best to start with, as most breeders grow their stock out in local tap water with minor adjustments. I do not use any blackwater treatments or peat, but you are welcome to do so. Discus can adapt to local water slowly, so if you add more tap water with each water change, they will adapt just fine.

Hi Kevin!
Thanks for your kind words, vote, and compliments! You have a pretty decent setup yourself there! I love the kribs and jewels, they look awesome! Have you bred any? They breed easily and not too difficult to rear. My discus are all locally bred and I bought them at a store. If you are in the US, why not consider Jack Wattley discus. He is the all original American discus breeder who has made a significant contribution to the discus hobby. here in South Africa we do not have breeders like him so we have to buy what is on offer rather than being able to order. A vote for you too! Cheers! Stokes

Hello
Heres a vote for you my friend.Hope it went well for you in school today.I don't know what I'd do in that kind of thing.I'd probably freeze up and look like a weirdo standing there on the stage.That was a really great game.I'm so glad they won.If they would've lost that would've been just about it for them.The same go's for the Royals.Take care now my friend.See ya later.

Thank you
it used to be very nippy, but it gets along with everyone since they have been together for a while. also there is only one so it isnt very agressive. i used to try to put fish with antennae in like gouramis and angels but the barb would always be nipping at them. your tank looks really nice. i really like chichilids. here's a vote, ill catch you later

HELLO
Heres another vote for you my friend.The fry are doing great.They eat really good and seem to be a little bigger than yesterday.I lost the second cory last night.Not getting anymore.Just going to leave it at balloon mollies and the pleco.I don't think they want it to rain on sat or sun.should be around 60 on both days though.I had to take those tests to.The school went on and on about them that they made me nervous to the point I was driving my mom and dad nuts.I think I did good on them.Not doing to much this weekend.Probably hang out at a friends house for awhile.But ya never know with dad.When he's home from work he gets bored and wants to go places all the time.Mom gets mad at him because of the gas prices.He doesn't mind though it's better than being bored he says.Take care now my friend.See ya later.,

Heres a vote for you my friend.Got two fry this morning.There was a mess on the bottom of the breeder thing and two little ones swimming at the top.Saw a few in the mess that didn't make it though.I wish they could've all made it.I just hope the 2 I got will be okay.Never took care of fry before.Live and learn I guess.I also lost one of the molly's and one of the cory's.Don't know what happened they were both fine yesterday.They were swimming and eating and everything.Sorry your team lost the two games.Hopefully you'll win the next game.Take care now my friend.See ya later.

Heres another vote for you my friend.Glad you liked the new pics.Everyone seems to be getting along really good with each other.I don't see any signs of one trying to bully any of the other fish.Still no fry yet.If she doesn't have any soon I'll put her back in with the rest.She might just be fatter than the rest.At least they put up a good fight.I saw they lost yesterday as well.hopefully they don't do to much of that in the playoffs.How did your team do in your first game yesterday?Did you win?Take care now my friend.See ya later.
