New Year's day Score!

Post  williemcd on Tue Jan 01, 2013 10:09 pm

On my FB fish-club, someone commented on my post of my disaster in the cave with one of my Discus tanks and the total loss.
Some kindred soul was looking out for me because this deal was passed onto me and consummated today!
Here are a few new stars!

Eight Discus and 4 pearl-scale angels. The Discus are about the size of a softball!

Well Jill/Fern, it wasn't without some serious change exchanged but a deal none the less. One member was over today and was blown away at the sight. That guy has been a recipient of a few of my fish and advice and reassures me..."When ya give, ya end up getting somewhere down the road".

Very nice! I do see a pinched forehead on one of the discus. I would hit the tank with metronidazol. It is very mild and cleans up 99% of discus inner ailments.

As pleased as I am with that score.. it pales compared to the pride I was feeling for the 6 pack that I'd grown for the last year from wee lil ones. The Scorpions are close but they're WAY ACROSS the room! This is sorta like getting a job or a promotion ya didn't earn, feels nice but..... you know...

Yup the blue one is the one I am seeing. Treat the tank with the metro and feed heavy on blood worms and he should fatten up quickly.

Metro and bloodworms wouldn't hurt even if they are healthy just in case. bounce

If he doesn't have metro get general cure, has metro and ...... F.... something ... ya too early for me Sleep I would usually get general cure because the added Fu...something scratch is good but just metro is a lot cheaper.
Note to self dont try to think or post this early in the morning......
