Been a couple months since an update. So here goes:
The 3 wilds and the Heckel cross have really started growing and coloring up---
The Heckel has lost some of his/her barring ( Im thinking it may be a female) and is developing a really pretty blue in the face. Im hoping this is, indeed, a female and will spawn with my Alenquer male. I was so disappointed in this fish when first purchased it, but it is finally starting to fill out a bit and get through the ugly duckling stage.
The 3 wilds are very slow growing, but have started to thicken around the head and torso and developing some width. They are starting to develop a few red spots on the body as well -- they are technically a "red-spotted green" variety. Definitely not a high grade example, but my days of buying high grade specimens are over. Just no longer interested in that after raising discus for 18 years. Am more interested in fish behavior, breeding, etc...
