Hi guys. I'm wondering if I can draw on your collective knowledge a little bit. I've kept discus in the past and I think I'm ready to start again in the next couple of weeks so I've been reading up on what's changed in the UK scene recently which is harder than I thought it would be because a lot of the info seems to be US based. Anyway, I paid a trip over to punchards over the weekend and his fish looked pretty good and it got me thinking. His prices are right at the top end of what I've seen elsewhere and I can understand the premium paid to any tradesman who's very good at his job but I've also heard great things about others such as chen's who are cheaper and I'm wondering if the two are really comparable or whether they are aiming at totally different markets. As far as I can tell chen's and several others import their fish from Asia or Germany and sell them on ( I may be wrong here, this is one of the things you can set me straight on ) whereas punchards breed their own and are involved in developing strains. How much difference does that make to the end purchaser? Am I barking up the wrong tree by even asking that? What I'm thinking is if I started selling beautiful Armani suits it wouldn't make me a top tailor but we're not talking about suits of course, were talking about discus. Also, how much of an advantage would it be to buy from punchards if, as I assume, we share the same water supply and therefore ph. Chen's being in middles ex makes me think he's using hard water in his general population tanks whereas mine is neutral.
