Default Return of My Pride and Joy!

My Pride and Joy

Kumlin's Tropical Fish was born in the year 1999. We started out with Angels which I admired and enjoyed watching as a way to relax. Then, on one of my vacation trips, I was introduced to the world of Discus. From thereon, a new era began for Kumlin's Tropical Fish.

My name is Kumar, and I am the driving force behind my enterprise. In the intervening years, from Angels to Discus, my knowledge and experience have grown tremendously. I have traveled to various cities and countries around the world to learn more about the Discus business. I have come in contact with many individuals from all walks of life, with varied ranges of experience in what they truly enjoy as a hobby and/or business.

We are taking the next step into the world of ornamental fish and we are also expanding our horizons with salt water fish and reptiles. Our second location, called SEA KING AQUA PET, is a wonderful 2000 square foot store located at 2950 Kennedy Road Scarborough, two blocks north of Finch, on the west side. We will be opening our doors to the public in April 2006, with approximately 50 tanks. By the time we have our Grand Opening in May 2006; we will have over 250 tanks.

The Simply Discus forum, which had previously carried my thread My Pride and Joy, was unfortunately deleted off the site due to conflict with the site’s moderators. Because of this, over 500 beautiful photographs were deleted and can no longer be retrieved.
This will be my opportunity to resurrect My Pride and Joy on this new site, and I am proud to be one of their first Sponsors.

where will be your store? I hope it is in the GTA area.

just curious to know, do you carry exotic strains like cherry blossoms?

do you import fish only? any attempt to breed them?

Default Discus

Kumar,

Always loved to see the discus in the store but worried about maintaining them and never had the courage to buy them - how easy is it to take care of them, what about toronto water any other special treatment ? also, since you will be opening up a store in scarborough,thinking of getting into Discus; how should i go about setting up a tank for them, what is the minimun size tank would u need, i hear a tall tank is what is preferable - but is it a must ?

Hi All,

Thank you all for your best wishes. I am truly excited about the store, because I am even furthering my horizons and branching out into Salt Water and Reptiles as well. I will definetily keep everyone posted on the actual date of the Grand Opening in May 2006.

Kumar
