Hi, Andrew :welcome:

How about "Discus for Dummies" :biggrin:

You certainly covered a lot of material in the first book. I will have to re-read and think about it before I can offer suggestions for a second.

Okay...a project for the weekend!! :bwian:

Thanks Judy...

And yes..I remembered you have my book....

So as to the book you won....would you like me to autograph...for you or inscript for someone else...since you already have one in possession?

Take care,

Hi Andrew :welcome:

I'm soooooo looking forward to my autographed copy! :blush: I want it inscripted for me...for me...for me! :biggrin:

I am going to donate my current copy to my local Aquarium Club. http://www.kwas.ca/ They have a few discus books, but they are of the "ancient" variety! :wink: The interest in discus in this area is getting bigger all the time and I'm doing everything I can to encourage that!

Jude :thumbsup:

That's great news! Another book!

Questions:

what is the impact of making 100% water changes on your fish? Stress factor?

Why do the fish have extra secretions of slime after water changes and what is the affect of this?

I thought of another question:

Can I get discus from you?
How do we get more of your products to the U.S.

What do you reckon?

Courtney.
