When i was into discus, I was buying them way out East on LI from a guy, Juveniles from 10-25 dollars. You'd be surprised how many breeders you find in the local classifieds.

Discus in general or are you looking for a particular strain? The guy out on LI deals mainly with red turquoise. Beautiful fish. I bought a few from him before. And theres a breeder in brooklyn that sells discus. I see him from time to time on craigslist

There's a breeder in BK, Bensonhurst I believe, that sells various strains. I'll post again here if I come across the name but he posts on CL a lot.

*** oops, ditto on what Hearnet said ! ***

I know a few breeders.
Local fish stores are very expensive.

I spent less even with shipping on my Discus from Hans Discus then I would have had to spend locally in a store.
