Its been a while since I have posted but work has kept me very busy and the fact that my wife is now tattooing keeps her busy as well. I wanted to get back on the forums and say hi again and post some updated pics of my Discus. The last picture is my fish room built off of my family room. I am also looking for a group of corys to put in the 180 so if anyone knows somebody please let me know. Thanks everyone and a big thanks to John at KG Tropicals for the blue diamond and flachen discus.

Great discus pictures - especially #5.  I love the way you have the room set up.  Very Happy  Is that the manzanita tank still going strong?  I really liked that lay-out.  Do you think you'll make it to the March 16 meeting at KGTropicals?  
I hope you will!

It is indeed great to have you back and we are really looking forward to having you on the Forum again.
Your fish room and pics are really awesome.

Yes Deb, the manzanita is still going g strong. In the photo with the eggs that is the manzanita the spawned on. The strip the bark with their mouths and then lay eggs on the wood. I haven't had a successful batch of fry yet but it's mostly because my PH stays at 8.2. There isn't much I can do about it with my well water unless I treat the entire house and it just isn't worth it to me. I like to just leave my tanks natural with no chemicals or PH adjustments of any kind.

Unfortunately I'm working night shift on the 16th so I won't be able to make it. The water plant needs me lol.

That is awesome that they spawned and I couldn't agree more about leaving things natural. We will miss you on the 16th but the water plant definitely needs you! *lol*

Thanks so much for posting the pics - really great shots of your fish!

Where is your wife tattooing, and does she do fish?  fish

She works out of Ugly Bishops Tattoo shop in Fredericksburg, Im sure she could do any idea you can come up with. She is an High school art teacher by day and tattoo artist by night. Here is a few sample pics. If I told you that shes only been doing it for a few months and is still an apprentice would you believe me? She has low prices because she is an apprentice but does great work. I wish I had all the picture of some of her really good stuff.

CICHLIDSICKNESS: Excellent to see you back on the forum! Your fish are still spectacular and your wife seems to be enjoying her "hobby" and appears to be good at it.. Only thing is she gets paid through her hobby and your hobby just costs you money!  Very Happy 

Welcome back!

I am a huge fan of tattoo and tattoo artwork and you wife's fundamentals are very good for a novice tattoo artist. I love the pork shoulders, do you all get to have good barbeque after a practice session? haha!

And discus are also an incredible fish! Good job, and thanks for sharing!

Glad i clicked on this thread. Discus and tattoos all in one place. Your discus look awesome I still need to tackle these fish one day. It seems your wife has picked up tattooing quite well.
