    Miranda here. I have made it a policy not to comment on other discus sellers, but having read Kenny's postings I have to chime in. Michael Li, owner of Discusfish.com, is a website owner, that's all. None of the discus on his site are his fish. None of them. He scams other discus dealers into contracting with him to sell their fish. He keeps a percentage of every sale. The other dealers do all the work, including shipping. When Li set up the website at first, he listed the names of the dealers whom he contracted with. They are no longer listed on his site, probably because his "dealers" figured out that they were had. At the time that he contacted me, the percentage was 10% right off the top for every sale. For those of us who import, breed, feed, care for, and love our discus, 10% off the top is a huge amount for a website guy who does absolutely nothing for his business except sit in front of a computer and collect fees. When he first contacted us, not only did he steal pictures, he actually tried to steal our whole website until we threatened him with legal action. He actually had the nerve to try to sign us up again at NADA 2016 in Chicago. I feel sorry for those others who fell for his line of ********.

    Exclamation BUYER BEWARE Discus.com

    I too was scammed by . What a horrible racket! He continually sends dead fish and expects you to keep paying shipping for the replacement fish. The fish never match the pictures. After reading the above I now know he was lying to me at every turn. The fish that did survive all have issues. The only three fish I have in my tank that aren't screwed up I got elsewhere.

    Do not buy.
    Buyer beware.

    Im aware of it Skip and my supplier is not happy at all. Discus.com is not an authorized seller of Australian Blackworms. Mal has informed me the issue is being dealt with regards to the Australian Blackworms.

    Thanks though!

    I agree with the sentiment here.

    Discus, like all other aquarium, you get what you pay for. Don't skimp out.

    Well, the concept of selling others' product by making a website is not the point to bash imo.
    That's how Amazon, Alibaba, Agoda and other millions of websites are making money.

    But the ethics (or lack off in this case, actually), stealing photos, lies etc., are not OK.
