This helps for external parasites and bacteria, but i dont know it also works for internal parasites. You must have a budget of a smaller african state.
    Nah, the stuff is only 30€ a bag

    I tried telling these guys years ago about the quality of fish that can be obtained outside the USA. These are beautiful and if they had this quality in US I’d probably still have discus. Amazing fish you have there.

    You can get these in the US.

    They are absolutely stunning.
    What would be the average cost of 1 of those fish in Dubai?

    Hi Jay,

    I don’t remember how much I paid for the original ones I bought locally a few years ago, someone asked the question in one of the threads before, I’ll see if I can find it..
    The self imported ones aren’t cheap, as there’s about 100$ shipping, tax and import duty on each fish, plus the actual cost of the fish. Exact amounts vary obviously with type and species. So about 150$ to 700$ each including above fees, average works out at around 350-400. Without the shipping the prices would actually be really reasonable.
