Cool Discus Pics and Where Purchased?

I was just wondering where everyone has gotten their discus? I really would like to know what's out there. Pics would be great too to see everyone's babies!

Bob at upper Canada discus is still around. I was up at his place a few weekends ago picking up a tank. He is more of a breeder then and importer now of days. My discus come from Discus Hans out of Maryland. I have some that I might be willing to part with. Let me know what you are looking for. I have some brilliant turquoise, red pigeons and some snake skin pigeons that I might part with. If your interested send me a pm and we can talk. If you rather buy from Hans. Let me know too I can send you his numbers .

Cheers

I've emailed Bob and he has never replied to me... kinda disappointed.

Andlaw: I'd be interested in your discus, I'd love to see them. I am now looking for specific 'looks' in my last fish that will top off my stock.

These are my discus. I got the two albino ones years ago from Markham. The orange one I got several month back from this breeder/importer on Broadview street downtown Toronto. He has some really nice discus and sells for as low as 20 bucks for juveniles. Let me know if you are interested I can look up his info for ya.

I contacted Brian. Unfortunately he's not really looking to piece them out. I can't buy his lot. I actually have to follow up with him again today, he had someone come out and look at them last night apparently. I did inquire regarding his available stock.

Might be in his spam folder. You should call him instead.
