    Thanks George! For sure stress and environment are two of the biggest factors contributing to peppering. When they move into their new tank it will be painted white on the bottom and sides which will reduce the peppering even more.

    Thanks, they are doing pretty good. They were 10 months old in the last set of photos. I can't wait to see them at 24 months!

    January was another good stable month for the control group. They grew about another 1/4" and are now around 5.5". They will be moving into a a 77 gallon tank with white sides and bottom later this month which will be better suited for this strain.

    This past month I moved the control group into their new home, a 77 gallon aquarium. There has been a nice reduction in the peppering now that they are in a tank with white sides and bottom.

    One final update on the control group. The grow out discus turned 1 year old this month. I am often asked if freeze dried black worms are a complete diet for discus and indeed they are. These discus were raised exclusively on the product except the first couple of weeks of life when they were feeding on their parents slime coat and baby brine shrimp.

    This grow out contest will be coming to a close at the end of the this month and new contest starting in May. More on that will be posted soon

    Nice job Rick! Lots of vertical, tiger stripes. I am amazed at the difference with the background colour. Brent

    Thanks Brent! I would definitely like to work out bringing out even more tiger stripes in future generations.
