    Lol, he knows I would kill him! Now if we had kids I would worry but all we have is an 18 year old kitty that needs pet steps to get on and off our bed where he allows us to sleep as long as we don't take up too much room ;)

    I missed this earlier but yes I'm sticking to good old water changes & plants. Once I researched about it I realized water changes were easier.

    Tested my nitrates before my w/c today and the results were between 5-10 ppm. My last water change was last week so I'm fairly happy. When I rinsed my filter floss it was filthy so I know if I rinse them a minimum of 3 times a week I should be in pretty good shape considering I'll be doing water changes much more often. Now if I could only get them done in under 3 hours....

    Tested the QT tank today, ammonia has not dropped and 0 nitrites...ugh...

    Got the link yesterday to Kennys Sept shipment and it kills me that I'm going to have to wait yet another month. On a positive note I found a few other Discus strains that are just stunning. Blushing Red, Albino Golden Snakeskin & Pentang Eruption.

    Hey Judi just a reminder, while it may not look like the Discus is pigeon blood most reds and yellows are pigeon blood based or have some mix in them. They peppering will eventually become apparent. Once you speak to Kenny and mention to him you don't want anything that has the chance of becoming peppered he will separate the dictated criteria from his shipment so you will get exactly what you want. Off the top of my head as per what Kenny told me, the selection becomes pretty limited but strains such as blue diamonds, all albinos, and snakeskins will never have any peppering. Congrats on your progress and can't wait till next month :)

    Also to shed some more light on Kevin's question a while back, simply put, nitrates stunt growth and it's the second worst thing to have a stunted discus (IMO) than a dead/dying discus, hence the many water changes to keep all parameters as close to 0 as possible.

    "Pentang Eruption", must be a new strain....., I only remember Penang Eruption. lol.

    Hmmm, that QT tank is sure taking it's sweet time. How many sponge do you have in there? I hope you're growing a few so that you can leave some aside for the next batch. I was thinking 8 for one shipment then another 2-4 for the next shipment. Or maybe you can do 6/6? If you have sponges ready on standby after the first batch, you can quickly establish the QT again after you clean the tank out.
    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.

    Mojo, thanks for the heads up that! I did tell Kenny I wanted to stay away from the pigeon strains but yes, unless they have the word "Pigeon" in the title it's hard for me to tell. I did also see an Albino Red Cover so maybe that would be a better way to go. I'm really getting anxious, next month will not come soon enough lol!
