    Re: Couple Quick Shots

    Can you tell us which color forms these are supposed to be because this is not obvious from the pics, the reason being that the fish are not adults.

    Kind regards,

    Dirk

    Re: Couple Quick Shots

    On the discus topic (sorry Chris :) ), I saw a beautiful pair of sunset discus (that was what they were called). They look opague in body but a gorgeous transparent reddish trim on the fins. They were R 450 per pop.
    At an LFS close to me. I'm pretty sure they'll still have the two. They are still juveniles and are the same size. Sorry I dont have pics....just thought I'd share what I saw. There are others in the same tank (all the same size) that also look beautiful. Very very healthy fish indeed

    Cheers
    Dale

    Re: Couple Quick Shots

    omg! Yup, those are them Chris. The two I saw had a bit less red trim (in size, not colour) on their fins, but definitely the right stuff. :) These will probably be the discus I'll be getting once I get my new big tank

    What do you sell them at per pop? Discount on bulk perhaps...looking at about 9 to start with? No rush, just want to start the budget in the interim ;)

    Re: Couple Quick Shots

    Wowzer....R 250 per fish is far better than R 450

    Shot Chris, will pick this up again when I'm ready to get them

    Cheers for now mate

    Having seen these fish in the flesh, I can most certainly vouch for Singus stock. They are superb. I even bought 4 of the wild X's. They are superb... Here is a quick pic...

    These pictures were taken shortly after them being introduced to their new home. Will update with new pics soon.
