    Default Tefe strain photo request

    I am currently trying to decide which strains to keep, and am particularly interested in the tefe (domestic strain), however it is hard to find good photos of adults with what seems to be the same few photos circulating. I would be very appreciative of any photos you have of your adults - especially if Stendker!

    Thanks muchly!

    Hi Ally, have you checked out the pics on Han's website? https://discusfishstore.com/product-...y/tefe-discus/.

    Hi Pat! I have (drooled) looked at them a lot! However, I am finding that they can be quite variable in coloration and patterns and was intrigued as to how others looked in adulthood! I did find this video a few minutes ago - would you say that this is a pretty good example overall?

    Ally, that video seems to show how varied the Hans Tefe can be and represents what I have seem at the NADA shows. Now note that I have see only a handful in person.

    Also look at the Striped Alenquer. This will generally be a brown based Discus with heavy blue striations across all of the body. Depending on the individual fish but mine is marked that way.

    Ally, I was thinking that you could email Kenny at Kenny's Discus. He has a Blue Alenquer in stock. Ask his opinion about differences between the Tefe and the Striped Alenquer and the Blue Alenquer.

    I have a tefe from hans I purchased about 3 weeks ago that is currently 3inches. in hans store you can see a slight variance from fish to fish of the same strain, but his fish look and behave as health fish should. I will be going back to his fish house on feb 7th or 8th. I can try to take a short video clip of his adult tefe, if that isnt too long of a wait for you. check out discus hans usa on facebook. he has uploaded a lot of short clips of his stock. silver pigeon, dark angel, and blue diamond are becoming some of my personal favorites as i grow out 15x 2.5 i purchased off hans. you can always email or call hans too, he loves to talk discus.

    Give Hans a call and tell him exactly what color or pattern you need. He's very friendly and helpful.
