    Thanks for all the compliments about the index. I guess it just goes to show how bored I can get at work on a Sunday. :P

    Judi I used to work for a shipping depot where we acted as a third party handler for FedEx, UPS and USPS. The way these drivers handle the packages are insane. I was always so careful to set fragile packages aside when they would arrive to our store and make sure they didn't get mixed up with the others, then the driver would show up, walk in the back door and literally throw the packages from the threshold of our back door into his truck 6 feet away.

    I too prefer FedEx. At my current job we used to use FedEx for all of our packages. We recently switched to UPS and I am getting double the number of calls from customers expressing frustration with lost or damaged packages and delayed shipping. :(

    At least you were at working making cash and going on the wonderful AC. You'll have to sing star spangled banner at home or have this running through your head:

    Think with logic and rationality more than emotion. Act with moderation and consideration. Contemplate ideals and realistic goals and weigh out possibilities and options. Temper not with personal delusions or false hope but learn to accept and move on.

    Realy!, I don't know whether to laugh or curse you, LOL.

    Here's a song that reflects Judi's thread perfectly, I should have thought of it sooner!

    Hmm, not sure why PM isn't working for me.

    JJ, I called Kenny up and he's prepping his next shipment. Feel free to call him whenever and he'll walk you through the process and take good care of your needs, ^^.

    I just got off the phone with Kenny and I am now even more excited about receiving the Discus from him. He really went above and beyond what I expected and took his time explaining the ordering/shipping process. When I mentioned that I was not only excited but a little nervous he immediately asked me what I was nervous about and walked me though the first time Discus jitters :D. We went over temperature, pH, the other community fish, size of the tank, amount of sand, plants, size of Discus, how many times to feed approximately in relation to the size of the Discus, types of food, acclimation, my liking brightly colored but non pigeon based strains due to black background. I can't say enough about how much I appreciated the entire conversation. He also mentioned that he has seeder sponges available to help with the cycling process but I forgot to ask if they can be shipped prior to the fish arriving or with the fish...I'm thinking its with the fish. Now I just need my qt tank to cycle...I don't think it will for the September shipment but fingers, toes & eyes will be crossed until then.

    Lol, so many questions to ask.

    Just call him up again.

    Also, I never really needed to cycle most QT tank for fishes since I changed so much water daily (95% - 100%) on those QT tanks....Not only that, whatever preventive treatment I did on them also pretty much kill the BB anyway.....

    I considered not cycling the qt tank because like you said those daily almost 100% water changes but ya know if I got hit by a bus or something and couldn't do the wc it would not be good for the Discus so I decided to the safe route. I will definitely ask him about those seeded sponges though.
