    Update; not much to report here. Definitely not as showy as the other G/O contestants!

    June update. Don't have any pictures at present but I will get on that. I lost my little guy the other day. He had not been eating and was super stunted, just not growing. Although even during the time he was not growing he had appeared to be well and was eating. But then I noticed he seemed to go off the food. I was giving him to time to snap out of but he didn't . And the other day I found him down. So down to two left, of which seem to be doing well but not much growth over the past few weeks. I find it interesting that Discus colours are definitely influenced by their surroundings. I say this because I moved one of my bigger ones into the 120 tank and almost instantly the fish went from a darker blue to a very washed out blue colour and has stayed that way. So I think because my tank is open to both sides (meaning no background ) I believe this influences their colours. My opinion anyway, could be wrong.

    Sorry to hear that you lost the small one. Environment has a huge influence on discus colours and in the case of pigeon based strains it also affects peppering.

    July update: Two remaining are doing well. Bit of a size difference between the two, I would say about one inch. Still growing but slowly.

    End of August (already!) update. Not a whole lot to report. The 2 grow outs are doing well. Unfortunately only able to get home to feed them once per day for this week as we are farm sitting.... 60 acres, 9 horses, 4 dogs, 6 cats, and a big garden. No fish though! What! There is a big pond though and if it were my place I would be having some Koi in there for sure.
    Here are a few pics I took today while feeding the discus.

    Big job looking after that farm! I would definitely be filling the pond with koi too The discus are looking good. Quite unique how enhanced the bars are in the back half of the fish.

    Las update! Clearly the other contestants grow out methods are superior! Had a hard time taking shots tonight as the fish did not want to sit still. Anytime I go near the tank they are expecting food so start to move around a lot!
