    I purchased some wild peru greens through the wetspot before the holidays...Aquatic clarity and purefishworks has some wilds from time to time as well and I see wilds available at a few LFS in the area too though I do not know what wholesaler they are purchasing from. Sad to see that John is having problems but I can't say that any of my own experiences with purchasing with him were ever smooth as it took me weeks to get in touch with him through email and phone to the point that I was about to give up and I know I am not alone in my experiences. His shipping though was excellent and most (but not all) of the discus I purchased from him were of good quality and health.

    Sorry about the departure from importing wilds guys, but time and school started to compete with each other.

    If anyone is serious about importing wilds as a wholesaler let me know and I will pass down my contact info for WBSabby.

    But please only serious inquiries only, someone with an established facility/business and import permit. I donít want to distract from WBSabby operation answering multiple inquiries with no actual desire for a minimum 6-8 box order.

    David Labell imported from Hudson last year. Was that a one-time thing?

    I wouldn’t mind stepping in for John on a seasonal basis but I don’t know for sure what is going on with him and I’d hate to step on any toes.

    I think anyone that imports from Hudson or Hugo will learn itís a one time thing lol. Thereís just no comparison what photos they post on FB to advertise their Ďqualityí vs what you get from their back room after they get your money. Their best fish go to Europe while they try to get the same $$ from US....

    WBSabby has been the most consistent, trustworthy supplier of wilds Iíve had and I went through all the Ďbestí in Brazil. They arenít perfect but they always try to rectify things, while Hudson and Hugo will tell you somehow itís your fault lol.

    I donít think youíll be stepping on any toes, John and I did not compete for the same customers. He bought his fish from a wholesaler in Miami, I buy mine directly from actually fishermen catching and selecting them. Different quality and price points.

    Iím not sure if he will be making it back but I hope so, financially he was always right on the fence and Iím not sure how far the hurricane damaged pushed him over.

    hmmm, It has been a while, but I imported wild discus for a number of years, the entire discus system is currently empty, I'm sure I could start it up again if the demand is there, I know two of my suppliers are still in business.
