MANY THANKS to Mr. Mark Evenden!

The history of our certified and exclusive STENDKER-retailer in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates)
Many thanks to Mr. Hamad Al-Suwaidi who wrote us:

One of my earliest and fondest pre school memories was of my father arriving home carrying a small white framed aquarium and a bag of tropical fish, I was captivated from that moment on and that s how my life-long commitment began.

My love affair with discus started very early when a mysterious blue fish appeared at the local fish store one day and by the age of sixteen I began importing independantly, however finding my ideal choice remained a challenge as most of the discus fish were difficult to keep and appeared too high bodied, too compact, too stiff, or too synthetic-looking for my preference. It was not until 2010 while reading an article in Aquapress Bleher that I came across a mention of the biggest hatchery in Europe known as Diskuszucht Stendker, the article was accompanied with pictures of Stendkers superb pairs which were simply spectacular.

While seeking out further information I visited Discus Hans YouTube channel which publishes an endless array of short movies showcasing his breathtaking stock, it did not take much to convince me that Stendkers discus was exactly what I wanted. Discus Hans (www.discusfishstore.com) is Stendkers representative in the USA and he has helped introduce me to the Stendker family, I learned valuable lessons and avoided major mistakes thanks to his generous advice and helpful tips. I must also thank Axel Oldemier (www.diskus-direkt.com) for also being a friend and kind enough to share further insight and knowledge which I m very grateful for.

My journey with Stendker discus officially started in the summer of 2015 when I finally received my first shipment from Germany. Opening Stendkers styrofoam boxes for the first time left me speechless, the exquisiteness of these robust fish exceeded my expectations and their quality and strength was unprecedented. I already decided that a single shipment was not enough and for this I had an entire facility room prepared.

After capturing photos that I shared online, other hobbyists across the UAE grew highly interested and began asking for a chance to view this interesting new arrival in person which was how the idea of starting the Discus.ae showroom came to life. As an art director and photographer with a background in design I considered this the perfect opportunity for me to combine everything I loved under a single umbrella, enabling us to display our beautiful fish in a minimal yet aesthetically pleasing setting where aquaria and creativity can meet. The Discus.ae showroom opened its doors on April 22, 2016 and every step of this process was documented in our Facebook and Instagram accounts.

Safe and clean aquatic plants were another important element that I had to provide due to the inability of finding reliable sources nearby, that ultimately lead me to Furqhan Packeerally who is known as the most reputable aquascaper and plant distributor in the region. From our first meeting we came to realize how near identical and paralleled our visions were and we instantly decided to work together. This partnership made Discus.ae the ultimate source for complete aquarium solutions which allows myself and Furqhan to provide everything required to start and maintain a safe successful aquarium.

Our online store (www.discus.ae) rapidly gained popularity and became our most active sales point, it carries and sells full product ranges including the ability to purchase live fish and aquatic plants with deliveries anywhere in the UAE. Due to customer demand we have also established a specialized maintenance team which is an essential service that many of our private and corporate customers rely on to keep their aquariums in tip top condition, amongst other services that our team provides are customized aquarium design, aquascaping, and resetting services to safely sanitize used aquariums for Stendker discus.

To offer more choices, compatibility tested companion fish such as tetras, cleaning crew, and dwarf cichlids were also made available in recent months which gives our customers a wide range of varieties and choices including rare and hard to find species that are not available anywhere else in the UAE.

This of course would not have been possible if it was not for the passionate and kind people that I m blessed to work with every day, starting with Shafi who has been my rock and by my side through every step of the way, as well as Chaminda who handles our deliveries and excels at every new challenge like a true professional. Also our salesman Shiyaf, a hobbyist that joined Discus.ae out of passion for Stendker discus and last but certainly not least, the talented newcomer Mark who has made our days easier.

It was a true honor for all of us when I was informed that we will be receiving the Stendker dealer certificate this month - this great acknowledgment makes us strive to continue to offer and aim for the very best. We are proud that in 2017 the Discus.ae customer base has expanded to Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, and Bahrain which made it possible for us to reach more hobbyists in the region for everyone to get a chance of experiencing Stendkers unique and incomparable quality.

I am thankful to everyone at Diskuszucht Stendker for helping me bring this dream to reality with their professionalism, kindness, and continuous support. The formation of Discus.ae was not only a success for us, but it had a signficant influence on the local market and because of it the freshwater hobby has been taken far more seriously in the past year which is what I always hoped to achieve.

So cooperation is fun
MYTHOS: beef heart feed is bad for discus fish
Over and over we hear statements like: “Why shall I feed beefheart?
No beef is swimming in the Amazonas!“
CORRECTION: No STENDKER-Discusfish are swimming in the Amazonas and our animals differ strongly in keeping conditions, the colour and the eating habits of wild captures, which can be found in the Amazonas, or other breedings.
Beefheart feed is conterminating the waterquality considerably.
CORRECTION: Right, if you feed too much or if our feed is defrosted the wrong way. High protein share etc. gives the possibility for a compensate feeding. 3 meals a day with our Good Heart is sufficcient (also for our LITTLE ones, from week 3 after birth).
Please carefully defrost the daily portion on the evening before, by using an airtight box with lid. For discusfish (LITTLE ones or BIG ones) feed 1-1/2 blister (5-7,5 g) per meal. Feeding to much makes our Discusfish SICK!
Cold-blooded animals cannot digest meat from warm-blooded animals (beefheart).
CORRECTION: From week 3 after birth, 3 x a day, our discus fish exclusively get our COMPLETE-feed based upon beef heart. You can see at our animals how our STENDKER-Good Heart is doing good to them.
When feeding beef heart, the water temperature has to be at least 30 degrees, to be able to digest this food.
CORRECTION: Even with a keeping temperature of 27 degrees, our animals can digest our beef heart feed very well.
Feeding beef heart feed 3 x a day is not varied.
CORRECTION: Our STENDKER-Discusfeed Good Heart exists from more than 100 components. Vitamins, minerals, fractions of vegetables an much more, and not only from pure beef heart. In our hatchery it is successfully used as single-feed since more than 50 years. From week 3 after birth, all our STENDKER-Discus fish are feeded 3 x per day with our compleet-feed, which is including everything our discusfish need to grow up. However, our animals need NOTHING ELSE as beeing fed 3 x a day with our Good heart; ofcourse you can additionally feed living food or frozen natural food, to offer a bit of VARIETY to your Discus fish.

Please do not feed red mosquito larvaes, Tubifex or unboiled shellfish meat, because that can even cause sickness to our animals. Live food is to be seen as a CANDY and also a welcome VARIETY, but does not replace a fully adequate meal with our Good Heart.
Small discusfish have to receive at least 7 meals a day.
CORRECTION: This can happen when using live food. For our STENDKER-Discusfish it is absolutely sufficient to feed from week 3 after birth (size 1 cm), 3 x a day, with our STENDKER-Good Heart.
Overfeeding is even harmful for our animals. The fishbones do not grow along with the animal. This can even cause a shorter operculum or a bent backbone.

We strive for a natural grow up of our STENDKER-Diskusfish and reach this with feeding our Good Heart 3 x a day. Then, our Diskusfish are fully grown with 2 years, as also in open coutryside.
Successful breeder all over the world are feeding beef heart, because this can ensure an optimal feeding of Discusfish.
All our publications with SUBJECT to Discusfish, are exclusively referring to our STENDKER-Discusfish. For wild captured fish or fish from other Discus breeder, other conditions can be valid.
We want to say THANK YOU to all our retailers, friends, followers and discus lovers for a great year 2016. We wish you and your family for the next year from all the best. Have a nice year 2017 :-)

50 litre rule for discus fish a myth:
We don’t know exactly where the 50 litre rule myth for discus fish came from, but we consider it very much outdated and, for rearing young fish, even dangerous!
In our opinion, the most important thing when it comes to keeping our STENDKER discus fish is to ensure that the group consists of generally at least 10 discus. (See also cichlid behaviour: http://diskuszucht-stendker.de/plugins_en/pdfs/1.4_Diskus-Buntbarsch-Cichlidverhalten_en.pdf.
The aquarium size is of secondary importance, but for a group of 10 adult discus should be not less than 350 litres.

For breeding a group of about 10 discus, a 180 litre aquarium is even better than a 350 litre aquarium, as it results in greater food envy, better food intake, more even growth and a stronger immune system. Rearing a group like this and with thrice-daily feeding with our Good Heart professional discus food usually allows the fish to be reared without the aid of medicines. Once they reach 12–14 cm, however, the discus group should be transferred to a 350 litre or larger aquarium.
We would once again point out that the information we provide relates specifically to our STENDKER discus fish and not to wild-caught discus or discus from other breeders.

CAUTION: Risk of injury
To avoid that your discus fish cannot hurt itself on sharp roots, we recommend to grind or straighten the roots. It can happen that your discus get scared and shoot through the aquarium.

Thank you very much.
Tips when on holiday:
Most fish die while you are on holiday because your neighbour means well but feeds them too much. We recommend not feeding the fish while you are away. Discus fish larger than 10 cm and other semi-grown fish can survive quite well without food for 2-3 weeks.
These periods of fasting occur naturally and can have a positive effect on health. You will not need to change the water during this period since the lack of food will mean hardly any contamination. Please remember:
- control the aquarium light via a timer
- leave an additional (second) pump/filter running permanently as a backup (do not connect it to the light timer by mistake!)
- lower the water temperature to 27 °C (lessens the appetite of the fish, makes them calmer and lowers their metabolic rate).

When you come back you should only feed the fish a little and increase the amount gradually. The fish and the filters have to adjust back to the normal amount of food (increase number of bacteria/filter performance).

Bacterial compatibility
We strongly advise against mixing our STENDKER discus fish with Asian fish or wild caught discus fish.

Fish from different breeders / retailers can have different strains of bacteria and should not kept together!

If you have opted for our STENDKER discus fish, you can introduce further fish from our hatchery of different sizes and colors, without risk at any time.

We guarantee you that our discus fish are free of tape worms and the so called discus disease!
You can see here how you can test the bacterial compatibility:
Fressnapf Paderborn XXL
Our STENDKER discus fish are not parasite-free
Our STENDKER discus fish are not parasite-free, but free of tapeworms and the so-called discus plague.

Our discus fish have strong defenses against the common parasites through their strong immune system.

We recommend also continue to feed to feed our popular STENDKER-good heart so that the immune system of our discus fish remains too strong.

Our feed is ideally suited as a complete feed, contains everything you need the Diskufisch for a healthy diet and is eaten by other fish species like.

Vortrag von Herrn Volker Stendker in Athen

Im November 2009 folgte Volker Stendker einer Einladung des größten griechischen Diskusforums www.greek-discus.com um in Athen einen Vortrag über unsere Diskuszucht zu halten. Die Präsentation war ein voller Erfolg! Etwa 100 Diskusfans kamen in den gut gewählten Veranstaltungsort um dem Diskusfachmann zuzuhören.  
Vortrag Jörg Stendker in Athen

Themen des Vortrags waren die Firmengeschichte, Diskuszucht, Filterung, Futter und andere technische Details, ein Fachgebiet von Volker Stendker. Die Besucher hörten interessiert zu und hatten anschließend die Möglichkeit dem Referenten Fragen zu stellen. Besonders Fragen zur Diskuszucht und zum richtigen Futter wurden ausgiebig diskutiert. Großer Dank gilt den Veranstaltern, den Mitgliedern des Diskusforums, die nicht nur eine perfekte Veranstaltung organisiert haben, sondern sich auch die Zeit genommen haben Volker Stendker die Stadt Athen und die griechische Lebensweise näher zu bringen. Besuche im Museum, an der Akropolis und in typischen griechischen Restaurants waren absolute Highlights. Auch die Besuche bei einigen unserer Kunden in Athen waren sehr interessant und wurden für Fachgespräche genutzt.

Vielen Dank nochmal an alle Beteiligten und auf ein baldiges Wiedersehen!

Besuch aus Norwegen

Am 27. Juli besuchte uns Betine, eine gute Kundin aus Norwegen, um uns dabei zu helfen Fotos zu machen für die neue Homepage die mittlerweile Online ist. Uns sind schon im Vorfeld die schönen Fotos auf Betine's Website www.betinesdiscus.no  aufgefallen, da haben wir sie gefragt ob sie Tips für uns hätte und sie hat spontan zugesagt zu helfen. Da Betine ohnehin wieder ein paar Diskus bei uns abholen wollte, nahm sie sich die Zeit diverse Farbschläge für uns zu fotografieren. Die fertigen Fotos können Sie bald unter Farbschläge und unter Ausstellungstiere bewundern. Einige Bilder vorab finden Sie unter diesem Text!

Danke für die Hilfe Betine!
