    This beautiful fish has suddenly gotten even more spectacular!Over the past 2 months I noticed the 'tail' growing on it's dorsal fin and the powdery blue dust on the top and bottom quaters. The black ring around its body now has a silvery blue shine. I just love it!!!

    How are the Red spotted greens you've got Rowland. Since I got this one from you I presume you are noticeing similar changes?

    Hope the photo will show.If not will try again.

    Hope this works now.
    Can't seem to get the photo uploaded from my pictures by using the insert img icon??? I am using Vista. Am I just blond or is there a trick to it?

    Smallfry...you did everything prefectly the second time.... the only problem is that when you copied and paste the link you left a "[" square bracket out from the beginning....all Andre did to save the day was to insert a [ at the begining ;D
    cheers,

    That’s one handsome guy, like I said the Wild side is really pulling me hard. Well worth the wait to see your discus.

    Well done small fry,

    A beautiful red spotted green discus, true wild type, and looking superb.

    The problem with these is that if you get them to breed and it has been done often enough, the offspring mostly do not have the nice red dots. However that does not detract from the fact that these are beautiful fish and you seem to be looking after them well.

    Kind regards,

    Dirk

    Hi everyone.

    Thanx for the kind words! Insidently this is the same fish as in your(Rowland's) very first photo posted in 'some of my wilds'. I know this because of the broken third(counting from the tail) stress bar on the right side of it's body visible in that photo. Seems he was quite a photogenic guy from the start! :D

    Will try and post photos of the others by next weekend. Watch this space...
