FALL 2017 DEXTER CHUNG DXCUS DISCUS SHIPMENT
I am pleased to announce I have imported a large number of high end discus from Dexter Chung of DXcus. If the name sounds familiar there maybe a couple of reasons why. Dexter’s discus have won numerous awards including Grand Champion and multiple Best Of Class placements. He has been able to accomplish this by starting with discus from champion bloodlines such as Goh Eng Khoon, Tony Tan, Ricky Lim and Wayne Ng to name a few. From there he has selectively bred and outcrossed where needed to further improve the shape, pattern and colour of the fish. Round shape, fabulous eye to body ratios, well formed fins and gill plates are the cornerstone of Dexter’s discus. When viewing his fish it is clear that the focus is on producing quality discus rather than mass production. Fans of wild discus will also appreciate the work that Dexter has done to blend wild genetics into domestic strains including the amazing third filial generation Heckel x Amana Red Spotted Greens that will be arriving in this shipment. It is truly a pleasure to make these discus available to hobbyists all across Canada.

Australian Freeze Dried Black WormsThis high protein (66%!) food is what I feed my discus and highly recommend to my friends and customers. I have tried many different foods and this beats everything else. It is available in the following six formulations:
Cubed Original -pure black worm goodness!
Cubed with Baby Spinach -great way to work some greens into your discus' diet
Cubed CAF Colour Enhancing -Available exclusively from Canadian Aqua Farm the spirulina and natural astaxanthin powder in this formula will bring out the best colours in your fish
Cubed Bio-plus - available by request. This formulation contains spinach, spirulina and carophyll pink, a powerful red/orange enhancer
Loose Original -can be chopped up for small fish or rehydrated for bottom feeders
Loose with Baby Spinach -all the benefits of loose original with some extra greens for your fish
Freeze Dried Brine Shrimp Cubes Place a piece of freeze dried brine shrimp into your aquarium and watch as the brine shrimp rehydrate almost instantly. Tropical fish of all types including discus love this food and it provides excellent roughage. A little goes a long way. If you normally feed 1 cube of freeze dried black worms at feeding time then I would recommend using 1/2 a cube of freeze dried brine shrimp.
