I recently purchased nine of Hans’s Alenquer discus and three of Mike Beals’s Brilliant Turks from Central Ohio Discus. I asked specifically for high-grade, breeding quality discus. I received photos beforehand that clearly showed only three of the Alenquers. I was a bit concerned about the quality of the fish in the photos but I thought that because both Hans and Mike are sponsors here, they must be reliable and so I shouldn’t worry. The Brilliants looked like they had amber eyes in their photos and so I told Mike I only wanted them if the eyes were red. He assured me they were. I then received nine very poor quality Alenquers and three Brilliants with amber eyes! The Alenquers showed evidence of stunting, beaks, pointy faces, some pitting, one with dull eyes, broken stripes, etc. I protested, and Hans offered to replace all twelve, promising to pick them out himself. I told him I was willing to accept substitutes for the BTs. I finally received the new set of fish and discovered to my horror that all twelve were, again, poor quality! Most had beaks, broken stripes, oval bodies, etc. Hans refused to do anything further. It appears to me that Hans was unable to provide me with high-quality discus because he had none.
