Also, there is going to be some great information on feeding including a hands on making beefheart as well as a demo of many medications including PP...... I think there will be something for everyone, even if you don't plan to keep discus....
Just got home. Those of you who didn't get to attend missed a great meeting. A wealth of information and discussion. Was a great time.
BIG thanks to Eric, whos time, energy, and money was spent putting this together. I hope the donations helped cover some of the costs. Thanks also to Walter (Wahter on the boards) who came down and gave a GREAT presentation about his trip to China and Wayne's discus hatchery.
Eric i think we were all WOW'd by the PP lol. I might have to pickup some from you at a later date. Also please keep me informed about the Kenny deal.
Thanks again, it was great seeing everyone. Hope more people start to dabble in discus!
I really liked the Meds part of it. Trying to do it on your own by reading complicated directions online is really confusing and it will swallow you up. Getting it in simple terms and broken down was great.
