Maidenhead Aquatics for Discus? #1
Hi everyone

i was just wondering if any of you have ever bought discus from any of these stores, i went into Maidenhead aquatics today for food and some filter pads and saw a few tanks of newly arrived Discus from Stendker . they looked in great condition and were a good size . i normally avoid this place for fish but i was impressed .

Never bought Discus from them. I bought my pair privately. However if they're importing from Stendker, then they'll be good quality fish and able to take most typical UK tap water (not the very hardest, but most).

My pair have eggs at the moment; hoping they raise babies this time - last time they ate the eggs before they hatched.

Well we have a few wrigglers this morning, so an improvement on last time. Now to wait and see if they take them further.
