    Thumbs upCongratulations Winners Of The 1st Annual Discus Grow Out Contest!!!!

    Thank-you to everyone who partook in the 1st annual discus grow out contest. All of the hard work and dedication that was poured into raising these fish really shows and you should all be proud of your accomplishments. Each entry was graded by three different judges on 7 different criteria; body shape, fins, eyes, gill/head structure, colour, health and overall impression with additional points awarded for size. After taking an average of the judge's scores it is my pleasure to announce the final results...

    Thanks....you are totally correct The entire 7-8 months has been a very enjoyable and rewarding experience. As you say, the "best prize" that each of has are the awesome discus we now have in our respective fishrooms An additional bonus for those of us who are relatively in-experienced in breeding and raising young discus, was that the "contest" has been an opportunity for us to gain experience in raising healthy fish from the "fry" stage ......with experience-sharing with fellow contestants as well as constant expert input from Rick. I would like to add a great big THANK YOU to Rick for all of his help. I am certain that I speak for all of us when I say that Rick was ALWAYS available anytime that one of us had a question or problem Thanks Rick for your genereousity in the prizes that you have awarded us, but especially "thanks" for your generousity in being a constant source of valuable information.
    Thanks to all fellow contestants for your willingness to share your experiences. It's been a great ride
    Congratulations to you all.......with special congratulations to Scherb and Shelby67
    I am now looking forward to the next stage in the development of these beautiful fish.....getting them to pair up and spawn
