    If they locally bred, are they wild?

    Nope...no wilds, only tank strains. Brazil doesn't want to supply us with health certificates, so you wont find wilds anytime soon. Unless you import them via Europe (as the "wilds" from Asia are tank strain anyway) and then you have to fill a box and expect to max out your credit cards

    OK so i may have used the wrong wording, I'm looking for Tefe or browns tank strains are ok as long as they have a natural look, I'm setting up a black water biotope and want a river look i have my pigeon bloods in a heavilly planted set up but as you know discus are a problem fish with wanting more.

    Best of luck with that...even tho Brazil is part of BRICS, they simply refuse to provide a health certificate for their exports
