    Hi There Everyone

    My name is Matt (or Matthew). About 3 years ago I became very interested in fish keeping and aquascaping. I still would classify myself as a novice fishkeeper. My first fish tank was a 3 foot fish tank (+-100L).

    Currently i have 3 tanks, a 700Liter and two 3 foot fish tanks (used for breeding). I became particularly interested in Discus and discus breeding. I live on the West Rand in Johannesburg. I have 2 discus pairs currently and spawned numerous batches of fry where i tend to fail at growing out the fry.

    Matthew

    Welcome to APSA Matt...

    Photos will be nice...we are suckers for fish/tank porn

    Why/when are your fry dying. Maybe give us some specs regarding your setups (water quality, food, feeding regularity, water change regime, TDS of your cut water, colour of your fry rearing tank backgrounds and bottom, etc)
