2nd Annual CAF Discus Grow Out Contest
It's hard to believe that 10 months have already passed since the start of the 2nd Annual Discus Grow Out Contest and the time has come to announce the winners. First though I would like to thank all of the participants for their endless hard work in caring for the fish as well as keeping all of us in the BCA community updated on their progress. I know I am constantly gaining new insights about these magnificent fish by seeing how they respond to the varied set-ups and care regiments that are implemented by the participants. I am sure many others also learn a tremendous amount by following the progress of each participants thread.
I would like to give special recognition to kimrocks, Immus21, crimper and kacairns who all posted at least one update in each of the 10 months that contest ran. Your dedication to the contest is very much appreciated!
I would also like to thank Darcy of the Canadian Discus Association for judging the discus. Each entry was graded on 7 different criteria; body shape, fins, eyes, gill/head structure, colour, health and overall impression with additional points awarded for size and participation. After tallying the final scores it is my pleasure to announce the three top place fish...
1st Place & People's Choice: crimper (winner of $300 gift certificate & Discus Care Pack)
2nd Place: phyeung (winner of $200 gift certificate)
3rd Place: Immus21 (winner of $100 gift certificate)
