    I and a few others were lucky enough to get them from David lai who did all the hard work acclimatising them for us:thumbup:
    But that said, I would try to keep them at the same Params as wild discus, low ph and low hardness.
    jizzy and mike os like this.

    Matt be careful if these are young fish and recently imported, they are very delicate at this stage. Would be interested in the details though

    After some wise words from simon marshall , decided not to go for these guys, far to much of a risk. Think I'll stick with David lai. Why make hard work for myself when David can do the hard work lol .
