John Erdman (JE), Reporter for SimplyDiscus Forums
Rod Lewis (RL), Discus Hobbyist and Fanatic

Without further delay, here's our June interview with Rod Lewis! Rod, thank you for all the great pics and your time!

JE: Please tell us all a little about yourself. Single, married, attached? Other hobbies? Any significant non-discus achievements you want to brag about?

RL: Hi, my name is Rodney lewis, I'm married to Sue, my wife of 15 years and we have 2 children. Sarah is 14 and John is 11.

JE: How did you get into discus? Where was the first discus you saw? How long had you been into fish first?

RL: I was looking for a new challenge with tropical fish and one time when I was at the lps I saw some small cobalts that I really liked, so I ended up buying them.

Many years before around 1980 a lps used to have small brown discus in the shop on a regular basis, although it wasn't until a few years later, in about 1984, when I saw the first really good discus, a new lps had started in the area and in one of the display tanks there was a gorgeous group of German turquoise discus. I think it was this experience that really caught my interest and eventually I knew I would try some. My science teacher at school had given me an old putty tank in 1978. I haven't been without fish ever since.
