    I think my discus are too pretty to be effective threatwise. now if I had a big ugly cat fish, or even a small ugly catfish in the tank. That might just work. hmmmm....

    Nice one, Cin! I think the guys that dreamt up blue-screen special effects studied your orchid photos, LOL! You must pick the fire ants off your back after a photo shoot.

    That is beautiful! I particularly like the shot of the pristine white flower against the bright blue sky--made me smile. So it is gorgeous AND smells like raspberries ... hmm add it to the list.

    Not a huge fan of white flowers generally speaking, but that is so pristine! Definitely a beauty.

    Kerry, I think the key is to actually dangle said plant over the head of the snapping gator. In your case, you might have to get on a fishing boat and have them do a bit of 'chumming'. When the sharks show up dangle the phals over them.

    Good plan! Although I have been told off today by McMother for being too impatient with the poor things. It appears that I must withhold all threats of dire consequences until at least next year.
