    I bought mine through Kenny and I cannot say a single bad thing about him, his shipping or his discus. The discus I bought were bigger, better and with shipping cost less than the discus at my LFS.
    IMO the expense of shipping should never be a factor in whether to buy a SD sponser's fish or fish from the LFS because you get better fish and usually for less money than at the store.
    ANY of the sponsers here have quality fish, they have been vetted by SD memebers who buy their stock so just find the discus you like and contact that sponser by PM about shipping costs.

    This is false economy. Shipping costs X number of dollars. Sponsors are not making any money from shipping. I often do airport pickup and pay the actual freight myself. If you get an offer of free shipping, that amount is simply built into the price of the fish. You may do better by finding someone local willing to share the cost of a box.

    Good luck, Willie

    Thats a good idea, I hate living in Spokane, WA there just arent many fish people period it seems, let alone discus nuts. I have a nationally known pleco breeder (Barbie) but thats about it and shes a GREAT resource and brings in discus for me but not everything I want and I dont think she actually keeps them herself in her 1500 gallons at home. So I wish I could, guess I gotta start giving the fish people I do know the discus bug!!!

    Hello Mr. Drew, what you need to do is go through the sponsor section and see what they have to offer with prices and quality ask a lot of questions like, what breeder, where are they from, how do they quantine the fish, What medications they were given prior to shipping to the US, sometimes you think they come from one country and they come from many different ones and ship to the US as one breeder. So make sure you ask lots of questions and take your time......Josie
