    I don't talk to too many people, that is to try to get them as a "dealer", most come to me.

    We don't do "protected area's" anymore, I did in the past for a store and found out that they also bought from an other source, this became not to well, they introduced a lot of problems and came crying back to me.

    Other thing is, some competition is not to bad for you guys as consumers, sometimes I see our Discus go for ridicules prices. I'm for lower prices, bigger market, etc etc

    Also in our case Chad, California only has one store listed on the website, a selling point for us!
    You're correct Frenchie, I try to keep that updated,

Just the thought of beautiful Han discus languishing in their tanks hurts pretty badly. mike

    Mike,

    this is one of the reasons I started this, I know I probably sell to a few stores that maybe better not should be a Discus Hans USA/Stendker dealer.
    But beside I'm a 100% hobbyist, I also got a business to run and pay my bills.

    This way I hope to get more good stores,

    Hans The one we talked about don't sale them anymore. They put gold fish in those tanks.. the owner thinks the only filter to use is an under gravel filter. They never grew and all died..

    So Hans, if I decided tomorrow that I wanted to distribute Stendkers and I placed my first order I would also receive 3 x 4" fish for free? LOL

    On a serious note Hans, what prices do you usually sell your discus for to suppliers? Say that someone wanted to be a supplier of your discus and they ordered a "box full" or the maximum that can fit into a box. Do you offer discounts on quantity orders? This would also be a good thing to know when approaching the store owners.

    Joe, most stores in Canada have a problem with the shipping cost, but give it a shot. Do I see you at the ACA?????

    Joey,
    we don't have wilds in 4", but as most people know I'm an easy guy, you can always work things out with me.
    If you get 10 new stores to order, you get 30 x 4" Discus.

    I get your point Hans. I'm sure you are more than fair with them. Some day I would like to be a Stendker dealer as I think I have a good location for it. Everyone is always complaining how there is nobody with discus in this part of the state and they don't want to drive 3 hours to Chicago, 3 hours to Detroit, 4.5 hours to Columbus to see Mike's nice stuff and there isn't ANYTHING north of here. The one store that carries Stendkers seems to specialize more in SW setups and African cichlids. They have maybe 3 tanks with discus and that's ony occasionally. In 3 years or so I will be waiting for my 3 4" discus when I place my first order as a seller. You can count on that!

    -Bryan
