Looking for... Local discus breeders ??

Anyways I got mine with the help of Matt from segrest farms.. I go some negative replies on another forums because I didn't buy mine from a personal breeder and that segrest is a horrible place. I wouldn't have known! Haha but I do love these little guys and plan to pick up a few more... I want to be able to pick them Up locally. Lmk! Thanks

If you're happy with the reputation & service from the source of the discus, and with the fish themselves, why fret about it ?
Show us some pics if you wish, and some members will give you their take on the quality of the fish.

They look like well-shaped, healthy youngsters.
For best potential development, give them large daily wcs, and feed them 5 -6 small meals a day if you can.
Best of luck to you.

Not sure about Michigan. But if you want to get the best looking, healthiest stock available near you that I know of, at reasonable prices, I'd strongly recommend you consider Chicago Discus (Josie). She has an excellent reputation and is a well-known, highly reliable supplier of quality discus, and a long-time sponsor on simplydiscus.com. You can google her website too, I'm quite sure.
