    Update from a long-distance member!

    Post by williemcd on Thu Mar 29, 2012 3:19 pm

    Things have been a bit hectic around here.. so I'll recap in a short form.
    I scored a deal on a 75 and 135, sold the 75 for the combined price. Set up the 135 for a twelve pack of Discus fry (quarter-half dollar size) cheap. Cross of a Solid Fire Red and a Brilliant Blue.. so should be an interesting grow-out. All while I'm getting this organized, pulled a small batch of Angel eggs from a Blue Plat Pearl/ Gold pairing and put them in a 5G egg setup... Darn.. two days later.. A cloud of German Blue Ram fry appeared out of nowhere in a 155 heavily planted tank... In with the angel eggs/wigglers... Shoot!.. two weeks later, yet two more clouds of GBR's appeared.... emergency set up of another 5G..
    Over X-mas, up north to visit the family, I ran into a GBR breeder who sold me 6 for $30.00... It looks like I ended up with two fem's..





    Pics of the discus/135 and rams.. Bill in Va.
    p.s. All of the driftwood in the 135 came out of a local lake behind my house..

    Bill,
    You know they say when it rains it pours. I have two pairs of angels that always spawn within a few days of each other. I swear the fish are like women, if they stick together long enough they all get on the same cycle.

    Now for a mental picture, how would you like to be like that sister wives guy, all those angry women at the same time, lol.
