They came from Kennys Discus in Daly City, California he imports from a breeder in Asia named Forrest. I had them shipped Fedex overnight to Kansas City, Missouri and picked them up at the Fedex terminal as soon as they came in

He deals some of the highest quality Asian discus in the US so a drive to him is well worth the trip, you know your getting good discus with him. Beware though he gets a new shipment in every month but they usually sell out before they get out of qt so when your ready watch for his new threads on simply discus and if you see something you want get your pre-order in

Here's a link to his Aug shipment that he just got in

He does most his businesses through his sponsor page on simply discus

Those golden lollipops are awesome, the main issue you run into with the solid reds and yellows is they are most likely pigeon blood based and you can't use a dark background or substrate or they will pepper, also with the yellows you have to make sure you don't feed them anything that enhances
Red out it will turn them orange

thats the problem i found with some of the Discus at my LFS. they were all "peppered". the guy said that is part of there genetics and it won't go away. ... i don't like it. :(.. but love the solid colors. :unsure:
