    Default When are they exported

    I have been looking for wild green discus. Nearly all the sites I have seen on the internet say their wild discus are sold out. When are these fish exported to the US? i know they are collected during low water but when do US dealers actually get them?

    How far do you live to the Manitoba border, Canada...You can order then at a location near the US border and drive over to pick them up.

    If you are looking for fancy wild greens with lots of spots those can be hard to find reasonably priced. If you are looking for plain jane wild greens these are easier to find.
    Try Houston aquarium warehouse..

    I have not bought discus there but have bought other wild cichlids from
    them and been very happy. They have greens listed.. I know this as I have been eyeing them.

    Goodluck,Post pics please.

    Wild discus are exported during the dry season and start appearing in catalogs in mid- to late August. Specialty stores will see this fish in September. Order early for the best quality - these are the fish that spent the least amount of time in transit.
    At my age, everything is irritating.
