Company History

Family Stendker     

In 1965 Heinz Stendker began with just four discus fish and laid the foundations of the professional discus breeding: by chance: the two pairs started to breed and within 6 months about 1.000 discus were hatched.

So the „discus fever“ grabbed him and his two sons became interested in.

Jörg Stendker's hobby became a profession in 1986 by starting a fish hall of 200 square meters with about 500 aquariums. Step by step the breeding became bigger and bigger and Heinz Stendker and Volker Stendker joined in as their main jobs.

The company Diskuszucht Stendker GmbH & Co. KG was founded by Jörg Stendker and Volker Stendker in summer 1998.

As biggest and unrivaled European discus breeder, we have customers all over the world. All of our discus fish are cultured by our company. The last crossbreeds have been the Pigeon Blood, Snake Skin and Blue Diamond in 1990, that led to several new shading colours.

Our high quality standards guarantee easy handling discus fish, you can recombine any time you like, with other Stendker Discus.

A further advantage for you being our partner: We have constantly more than 200,000 discus fish in stock so that we can deliver any time. You can select from 6,5 cm to Jumbo size and more than 20 different colour shades, make your decision.
