Some photos of our customer's aquariums:

Peter's planted tank and a message he sent shortly after getting the fish home.

"Rick great meeting you today unreal selection of discus I was really impressed.  My new discus settled right in with my existing discus. I am very please with the size and your great pricing on such nice fish. I look forward to some of those baby cobalt blues you are raising. Here are some photos of your fish one hour after release.  Thanks again."

Update 7 years later! Peter's newest additions to the planted tank just hours after being released...

Although I'm best known for my discus when other rare or "show quality" fish become available I won't hesitate to make them available.  This is an update on a F2 Santa Isabel Angel that went to my client Marco.  It's really maturing nicely with great colours and pattern on top of a beautiful shape.  I can't wait to see this one when it is fully grown!

Eugene's group of 21 fry.  This series of photos shows what amazing growth and body development can be achieved with hard work. Eugene has been feeding at least 6 times per day with a tank vacuuming after each major feeding.  As well two 90% water changes are done daily.  A lot of work for sure but boy is it paying off as the discus are growing up to have very round shape with a tiny eye to body ratio. 

Shortly after arrival in their new home:

Sean's monster tank video.... this is a must see! Discus, stingrays and koi living in harmony though the koi have since been removed.  Sean started with a bunch of our 2" home grown baby discus and then later topped up  his collection with a bunch of our high end imports.  His discus spawn on a regular basis.


 

Rod's Red Eagle crosses and Albinos.  The Red Eagles were bred here at CAF and the Albinos were imported from Forrest Discus.  Rod has done an exception job raising the Red Eagles from a very small size and also packing some serious growth on the albinos in a short period of time.
