    Hi all
    I'll try again...my last post got lost.
    I have been in the hobby for 18 years, starting out with Malawis and moving on to Tangs. About two years ago, frustrated with what was happening in the market, I started bringing in directly from the Malawi...an awesome experience. It was at a similar time that I saw two discus at a shop in the area and popped them into a spare tank. The malawis and tangs have subsequently made way for my discus collection.

    I look forward to learning about a trully well planted tank here and putting that into practise with my discus, Apistos, cory's and cardinals, while giving the discus breeding a shot too.

    Cheers
    Rowland

    Thanks Cameron

    I wish I could say it was all my doing.... All I did was buy the pair from their previous owner who got them into such wonderful condition through meticulous attention to detail.

    I am still very proud to be the new owner.
