    Well, I am getting ready to do a job for a Discus breeder and will be getting a large bunch of young discus to add to my tank in a few weeks!!!

    When all is said and done my Discus tank will be holding about 15-20 discus!!!

    Lots of work now as I have to make a nice website for him! :)

    I met this guy about a year ago and he has an awesome stock of discus, he just is relatively unknown and about 2 1/2 hours from my house.

    Last time I saw him (a year ago) he had
    Blue Diamonds
    Blue Turquoise
    Red Turquoise
    Snow Whites

    He told me he had some Heckel Wilds (just got the pair)
    and Leopards

    That is what I know. The guy raises angelfish and discus. He makes his money on Angels and loves discus so he does them too. Problem with discus is the price, not many want to pay that price.

    Unfortunately the babies he has are too young to be sold.... so it will be a few weeks before I can get them..... Hey it gives me time to make his website :D

    I actually am hoping that out of 15-20 discus I will have a pair or 2.... I really want to breed them myself.... not for the money... but to do it

    The other thing... these fish are not really free.... his website is on my server I pay for and it takes some time to make the site.

    Who said they were free? I asked you to sell me some if you didnt want them all or got them to breed. Not asking for a handout just figured Id help you out by offering to buy any unwanted fish. Wont happen again sorry.

    If I get breeders or some weaker ones in the tank that need to go I will let everyone here know.

    If I ever get a successful spawn I am going to sell the babies for like $5-$8.
