Group buy anyone?

Post  williemcd on Sat Feb 16, 2013 9:58 pm

Here is a pair with their spawn. They now are about an inch in size and about a few weeks short of going on the market. I'm looking to pick up 1/2 dozen. Anyone want to add to the quantity? The more we purchase, the more I expect a discount. Bill

Right now he's talking 20-25 each. With over 100 and a volume buy, I'm hoping for 14-17.00 each. Bill

Note!.. a couple of years ago I bought a dozen about .25 cent size and reared them in a 29G for 6 weeks, sold off 1/2 for almost my whole investment. Ultimately you should be willing to provide at LEAST 10G per fish as they grow. Not the ultimate disposition of the fish but during their growth period.. That's what I've read and believe. Not that I'm an expert by any means. Plus, you should be willing to acquire at least 5 of them if you'r not keeping any at this time as they are, while not schoolers, they do enjoy the company of like kind...
Note II. If you're concerned about your skill level in keeping Discus, I'm probably the most lax fishkeeper in regards to tank maintenance.. And I've only lost ONE, and he was questionable when acquired, in the three years I've been keeping them. (Excepting the 1/2 dozen I lost when I was out of town with a tripped circuit breaker in my cave that supported that tank).
Discus from a home breeder are very hard to come by and usually command a price that I've not a history of paying. My last batch of 12 took me over a year to source. Bill
