    Hey guys...a friend of mines who I met through Craigslist has set up his own online freshwater fish store. He lives here in Richmond, and is currently running things from his house. He has an insane setup at his house for the fish, and is very knowledgeable about freshwater fish, especially SA and CA cichlids. He has has quality livestock, so if you are in Richmond, and are looking for some freshwater stock, send him an email. His prices are better than the local stores.



    Thanks

    Hey guys! Just bought 2 new Discus today. 2-3 inches for 35 bucks! Check out the site. He will order you whatever you want and the prices are crazy low. Great quality fish too! I know he currently has Electric Blue Rams. I think they are 15 bucks a piece. Last time I saw those they were 30 bucks a piece!

    I bought 2 huge pieces of driftwood for $10 each and he threw in at no cost 6 red eyed tetra that are healthy. Rama is the owner if in Richmond he delivers (well you meet in a parking lot). Very knowledgeable about fish keeping.

    Had 1 bad experience with this guy and he stuck to his word and fixed it. He replaced all of my Discus. He still owes me two more and has held off on replacing them for a month now until he can give me fully healthy and the best colored fish he can find. He offered me my money back but I told him I would rather have the fish. Replaced two of them 3 weeks ago and they are doing great! I will be picking up my other two this weekend. I will post pics. I definitely recommend Skoolzoffish.com if you are in the Richmond area. Rama has a lot of knowledge and the customer service is outstanding!

    I left a VM yesterday morning and still nothing, even left my email since I am in chicago.

    I am about to drop a good 1200 on discus in about a week and am reaching out everywhere to get what I want.

    If you guys know him have him check his VM and get back to me.

    If you are planning to spend that amount why not get them directly from Hans, I would post a link to his site but it will get deleted due to it having links

    Yeah, i'm with Anthony there. You should order directly from Hans. If you google him it will take you directly to the website. Call for a price list. If your planning on spending that you can get a lot of fish! LFS here got a price list and shared it with me. I'm gonna be buying from their next order. Dirt cheap and he always has really pretty fish!

    Also, found a 190g tank,canop,stand,predrilled for 1500 that might be the new discus home, weighing my options right now of getting 4 for my 45 or getting the 190 and going discus amazon heaven with it.

    That sounds awesome! I just moved my big Discus into the tank with the others. I didnt realize how big it was until I moved it. Now I have a 50 gallon available to put more in. One of the stores here has 2 and he said he would sell them to me for 15 bucks a piece. About 2-3 inches. I may pick those up on Sunday. Only problem is the PH in the stores tank is around 6.2 and my tanks are a consistent 7. I would have to acclimate them REALLY slowly and just hope for the best.

    An hour on a drip should do them fine, that isnt a hard swing for them, from what ive read there are people that keep discus in 7.6+ ph water , granted breeding is non existant but....

    Fish will adapt to the PH, its not a problem at all really unless you are going from a 5.0 to an 8.0 or even 7.5. our tap is 8.8 out here and some guys just add dechlor and let them be. others around here sweat by pure RO water and equilbrium...

    If your going with Hans check out this link...it will even tell you what he keeps his tanks at (I contacted him to find out before I purchased mine) Buying a Hans Discus fish
    Not to get off subject, but also I've heard highly about Jack Wattley.
