    Default New wilds shipment April/May

    Got another shipment coming, this time chose all fish from one picture out of water. Some will be interesting to see what they look like in the water, took a chance but wanted to try something different.

    Anyway, lets start with the heckels:

    Jacarecappa, went for very yellow/blueish. No idea how they will turn out, but I hope very yellow without much red.

    The rest of the Batata
    He’s small, but the red will be incredible I think:

    Love the pattern on this one, so I ignored the broken bar

    And then these 3 grey mishmash weirdos. I’m hoping for a blue hue, a bit like solid greens, but bluer (if that makes sense)

    That feeling when you mistook a buyer's thread for a seller's
    Water change is not just a chore, it's my life now...

    Excellent quallity wilds Tobi.
    Do you add stock or restock your monster tank or you are starting a new one ?
    I wonder if you order your fish directly from Vitor Quaresma -Santarem discus or you need an importer in order to get to his wilds to your place ?
    We eagrly await photos of them underwater .

    Just adding stock Filip. My originals are slowly dying out, and the quality of this season is just crazy good in my opinion. As you can see this time I went more for color than shape though.
    My 220 is currently empty, so once these arrive I’ll have to decide who goes where.

    Currently there’s 28 in the 325 and 36 in the 720. With 36, there is still a good amount of aggression in the tank, so upping the numbers should help.
    I’ll likely end up putting all the old ones I bought locally in the 220 and the rest in the other 2. My problem is, that I don’t think I’ll just stick to those 28 above.
    The guy who sends us the fish is Hugo’s agent in Germany btw, and also has some stunning Trombetas, Guariba and Inanu reds currently in qt, as well as Paunini/Unini Blue Face heckels. And he ordered over a hundred more from Hugo, which I haven’t even seen yet.
    I figure I can house about 100 fish comfortably, so that’s where my self imposed limit is right now.

    Beautiful fish! I love the broken bar fish adds character imho.

    Looks great!!! I got 4 more in today since my original stock is dying off as well. Too bad America doesn’t get the same quality as the ones pictured but they still look amazing. Can’t wait to see what they turn into
