    Still in the process of clearing out tank space, and I am seeing if there is an interest in red turquoise discus. I have a total of five, all eating well and in good health. Two are 3 to 3.5" and three are 2 - 2.5". I am asking $30 for the larger ones and $25 for the smaller ones. I will post pictures later this evening, or I can send them in email if you are interested. Email is rfune@rpfsys.com or you can call or text at 443-493-0391.

    So

    How many times do I have to say yes? Can you bring them to the next meeting? Generally a splendid time - should be even better given the lengthy interlude since the last meeting.

    On a side note - is there anything in particular you need or would consider by way of a full or partial trade?

    Hey, Sam, obviously, I wasn't able to make it to the picnic. :)

    Won't know if I could bring them to the next meeting until the date/time is announced.

    I wouldn't mind keeping them for Sam, but I was hoping to clear out this 55 gallon long before a September meeting. We'll see what happens. :)

    Well, no pressure, Sam, but someone else has been bugging me to take the whole set. I guess I am antzy. just had a second discus pair unsuccessfully spawn in a crowded 55. Need to start splitting these guys up and put pairs in individual breeding tanks.
