    Thanks for the reminder Rick! I decided to go with the temperature raise after a couple of days of the oranges as it was clouding up the water a lot. Not sure if the type of orange makes a difference or not.

    Not too much to report. My fish looks pretty much the same to me except the eyes look a little bit more bugged out. It's appetite hasn't been ferocious in a long while. Perhaps without competition for food it doesn't feel the need to attack. Sometimes the FDB is all gone when I get home and sometimes it looks untouched. It's still trucking along

    I am sad to report that I am officially out of the contest I went to my garage a couple of nights ago to do my water change and found my last discus lying flat on the bottom. It was still alive but appeared to have trouble staying upright when it struggled to swim around the tank. It's appetite was really good the last little while so I thought it was perhaps bloated. I did a water change and added some stress coat and epsom salt to help. Unfortunately the next morning I found it leaning up against the wall but it wasn't moving. Needless to say I'm pretty disappointed but not discouraged to try the contest again sometime in the future. I'll need to re-think my setup and sanitize everything. Everything was pretty consistent from what I did the last contest where I had some success but not sure what went so wrong this time. Regardless of the outcome it's always great to have this learning experience that this contest brings. It will probably be a while before I try again but in the meantime I look forward to following future contestants and learning from their journals. Thanks again Rick for hosting this awesome contest and good luck to the rest of the contestants that are still in the contest! Can't wait to see how all of your fish turn out

    Sorry to hear this, it's life. Fish come and go. Don't be hard on yourself. It might have been lonely.

    I'm sorry to hear it didn't make. It's tough raising a single one.
