Hang in there Plumkin! I'm sending you a HUG.... ( I couldn't find a HUG smilie)

Good luck with the new parents. I hope they sort it out. You would hate to take her from her mate and give her another. That's sad.

Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard

Plumkin I'm thrilled for you!! What a dream come true!! See keep an open mind and you never know where your Discus will take you!! If we had said, " Plumkin, those babies will get you to a job at the aquarium" you would have told us we were nuts. LOL We're so proud!!
There is talk of building an aquarium in Toronto. I can't wait. They will have to wipe the nose prints off the glass everytime I visit. lol

Good luck in this new adventure!!
