      No, you did not read carefully: Every “dory-fish” purchased at a big box pet store, local fish store, or online will be harvested from a reef in a data-deficient fishery about which there are significant anecdotal concerns. Christiane Schmidt is known in Germany as a big liar. Check yourself at the IUCN Red List, where Paracanthus Status is "least concern", that is the best available Status there. Actually, Christiane Schmidt says, yes, Paracanthurus is locally endangered in Indonesia, due to the fact, that nobody can proof this. And yes, Christiane Schmidt has of course more and localy finer data than the IUCN.

      I love this explanation of your design goals and solutions appropriate to the biotope. I accidentally went in that direction in the late 90s with a tank with a lot of mulm, and raised wild discus, tetras, cool catfish, with no problem.I had limited light, with poor options at the time, and used found wood and blackwater tonic as a poor and expensive attempt to keep.the water dark. Discus keepers were horrified, with their bare tanks, but mine bred effusively. Your article inspires me to try actual dirted tanks, sustainable tannin sources, and enough light to grow some weeds. Thanks.

      I would like some of these if a female was available.

      I have brought in bags of these from Asian shippers .They list them as Apisto Borelli which they are not.Out of 100 fish you are lucky to find any females.I believe also they are a hybrid and are being hormoned or very carefully being bred under conditions to produce only males for export similar to the way exports of various color varieties of dwarf gouramis are limited to males
    • Poissons De Rory says:

      It's similar with my tap water, it's very soft at approx 35ppm TDS in Glasgow Scotland. The pH is 8.0 from the tap, if you leave it in a bucket for a few days it drops to neutral, and after a few weeks in with the fish and plants it slides down to pH 6.0. This can a problem with water changes because the fish can be subject to large changes in pH each time. If I buffer the water it tends to stay at a high pH, which is not really what you want for soft water fish. Also the GH and KH then are out of ratio. I like this fish, I had one a while ago. The body shape is plain but the discus blue markings are distinctive...
