How to Keep Wild Discus Fish

by | Apr 6, 2023 | 0 comments

Wattley Discus is known for providing some of the best quality discus fish on the market, and Gabe Posada, the speaker in the video, is going to show you why. In this blog post, we’ll dive deeper into the procedures that the team at Wattley Discus goes through to bring you the best wild discus from Brazil.

First off, let’s talk about wild discus. These fish are absolutely stunning, and many people prefer them over hybrids. However, they require extra care and attention before they are shipped out to customers. At Wattley Discus, they take extra steps to ensure the health and safety of their fish, even if it means paying more to the exporter.

The wild discus are quarantined in Brazil before they are shipped out to Wattley Discus. The exporter sends videos of the fish while they are in quarantine, and it takes about four months to deworm them, clean them, and get them to eat. Once they are deemed healthy and ready to go, they are shipped to Wattley Discus.

Upon arrival, the fish are held for a week before they are shipped out to customers. This ensures that they have acclimated to their new environment and are ready to thrive in their new homes.

But what makes these wild discus so special? Well, for one thing, they have all-natural colors. When you see them in the video, you’ll notice that there is no specific light used to enhance their colors. Just a simple white warehouse light. Once you add enhancing lights to your tank, the colors will truly pop. And Wattley Discus has a variety of wild discus to choose from, with new shipments arriving every three months.

Gabe also mentions that Wattley Discus changed suppliers to ensure they were getting the best quality fish. As a businessman who wants to bring customers the best, Gabe went to another source that could provide the kind of showmanship that Wattley Discus is known for.

Now, some people might be intimidated by the idea of keeping wild discus, but Gabe assures us that they are just as easy to care for as hybrids. They have the same requirements, such as water temperature between 84 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit and a pH below 7. They also eat the same foods as hybrids and require one discus for every 10 gallons of water in the tank.

In conclusion, Wattley Discus goes above and beyond to ensure that customers receive the healthiest and safest wild discus on the market. They take extra steps to quarantine and acclimate the fish, and they have a variety of wild discus to choose from. And if you’re still intimidated by the idea of keeping wild discus, just remember that they are just as easy to care for as hybrids.
