Actually, my favorite is my smallest discus,a male Alenquer. His colors are beautiful.



Bump: Im getting the urge to grow out a group of discus as all my discus are adults- possibly 6 Stendker juveniles.

I am thinking of this one: Stendker Flachen Discus Fish

Isnt it amazing?

The Alenquer pair now has their own breeding tank. Have spawned many times, eggs fertilized, but calcify or get eaten. Going to try a couple spawns in here to see how the eggs do, if still calcify will be looking into R/O unit.

He has some of the most beautiful domestic line-breds.
Been buying from him for about 15 years.
