Default Bob Garside - Breeding Wild Caught Alenquer Cuipeua (Pic Heavy)

Afternoon all.

So I've been chatting with UsAndThem about the group buy for Stendkers discus as I am hoping to take the plunge into a Discus tank for the first time.

At his, and others, encouragement I also got on the horn to Bob Garside and Vern Archer to learn what they currently have coming out of their hatcheries.

Bob was super responsive to emails, and really friendly in his replies. He let me know what he's currently breeding, and shared some exciting news. Last Saturday one of his pairs of Alenquer Cuipeua spawned. He's given me permission to post his photos here, as I thought you guys would get a kick out of them.

In follow up chats, he thinks he has another pair about ready to spawn, and he's also trying to spawn some wild Red Spotted Greens. So exciting things are afoot in Upper Canada.

Here is the link to Bob's website, but I'd encourage you to reach out to him via email for the most up to date information: http://uppercanadadiscus.com/

And now... the pictures:












Cheers,

-- Pat

Holy cow, thanks for posting this.

Personally, I like the wild stuff, not the neon colored stuff.

Will definitely follow this breeder.

I'm pretty sure I bought my breeding pair off Mr. Archer. It's been so many years I can't remember. But He has pictures of Jack Wattley in his fish room and amazing wild caught discus that he personally caught on one of his trips.

I always hear stories about discus as big as dinner plates and assumed it was an exaggeration Until I was at his house.

If it's the same guy he must be in his late 70's

He has a few pairs of wattley Discus so I wouldn't be surprised . He is located out in Whitby.

I'm going to be visiting Vern and his hatchery on Saturday. With his permission I'll post some pictures in my post of the visit.
