 Though  there  are  innumerable  Discus  breeders  and  exporters  around,  only  a  few  like  Roy,  Andrew,  Jack,  Ivan,  etc  have  their  names  bookmarked  in  the  field.
   
 Keen  to  know  what  makes  their  fish  famous  and  make  them  stand  out.  And  post  the  other  prominent  breeders,  you  know.

 Sam????   Surprised  
 
 I  guess  you  missed  out  Chai  and  Wayne.
 
 Having  personally  interacted,  and  also  visited  their  breeding  setups,  and  spending  quite  a  bit  of  time  with  both  Roy  Khoo  and  Chai,  I  would  like  to  tell  you  what  I  know  about  these  guys.
 
 They  make  sure  their  fishes  are  in  top  shape  by  keeping  notes  on  ALL  tanks  in  their  hatcheries.
 They  make  sure  their  fishes  are  free  of  infection  by  religiously  quarantining  ALL  new  additions  in  a  separate  quarantine  facility,  thats  away  from  their  hatcheries.
 They  regularly  bring  in  fishes  from  other  top  breeders  across  the  world  to  enrich[or  strengthen]  their  gene  pool.
 All  these  guys  are  pretty  good  and  actually  authorities  on  genetics[at  least  fish  genetics].
 Hard  work,  and  truck  loads  of  it.
 Heaps  of  experience.
 Merciless  culling  when  fries  are  not  of  expected  quality.
 
 Man,  they  do  spend  quite  a  part  of  their  lives  for  discus  breeding,  making  huge  sacrifices  in  personal  and  social  and  corporate  lives.  If  you  look  at  this,  the  money  they  make  is  peanuts,  if  you  know  what  I  mean.

 I  had  got  some  heckels  with  me  from  another  vendor,  which  Roy  agreed  to  repack  for  me,  as  they  had  been  in  their  packets  for  a  whole  day,  and  I  had  about  14  hours  left  to  reach  home[Coimbatore].
 
 When  I  went  there,  I  was  let  in,  but  not  my  fishes.  Roy  wanted  me  to  drop  off  all  my  fish  outside  his  hatchery,  and  had  his  partner  repack  them  for  me.  They  made  sure  that  IN  CASE  my  fishes  had  any  form  of  infection,  that  shouldnt  affect  his  fishes.  So,  his  partner  brought  out  water  in  a  huge  bin,  and  also  brought  out  the  oxygen  cylinder.
 
 With  this  he  repacked  all  packs  with  a  water  change  and  oxygen,  and  then  disinfected  himself  totally  with  some  strange  medicine,  before  he  entered  the  hatchery.
 
 They  are  soooo  careful,  and  maitain  their  fishes  so  well.  They  are  really  hospitable,  and  helped  me  out  with  quite  a  few  things!

 Thanks  for  the  inputs.  Seems  all  of  the  above  are  dedicated  to  only  Discus.
 
 But,  I  thought  each  of  them  specialised  in  his  own  famous  strain.  Aware  of  any  such?

 There  are  thousands  of  discus  Breeders  throughout  the  world  ,  each  one  have  there  own  speciality  .  Some  of  these  breeders  are  the  creators  of  some  of  the  strains  .  Some  of  these  Below  breeders  are  famous   for  these  strains   
 
 1)  Ivan  Seah  -  Red  Passion  ,  White  Peacock  .
 2)  Chai              -  Web  Leopards  ,  Millinium  Gold  ,  Super  Melon  ,  Red  Map.
 3)  David  Lim   -  Scarlet  Leopards  ,  Crimson  Leopards  .
 4)  Collin  Heng  -  Spotted  Leopard  Snake  skin  .
 5)  Peter  Choo        -   Golden  Blue  Satin  (  introduced  last  week  )  .
 6)  Roy  Koo      -  Goldens  ,  Calicos  .
 7)  Govindrajan  -  White  Butterfly  ,  white  Scorpion  .
 Cool  Waynes         -   Angel  Blue  Diamonds  .
 9)  Kelvin  Chain   &  Many  more  ,  the  list  is  endless  and  very  difficult  to  highlight  any  particular  breeder  .
 
 All  these  breeders  are  proffessionals  and  some  of  these  breeders  handles  1000  -  1500  tanks  in  their  farms  ,  and  have  very  good  system  .  Some  of  their  discus  have  won  the  grand  championship  also  .  
 These  breeders  have  worked  for  many  years  to  produce  the  beauties  which  is  there  in  our  tanks  .

 Nice  list  Shiv
 
 For  the  Singapore  breeders

 David  Lim's  fishes  are  Crimson  and  Scarlet  LSS.
 Dale  Cheong  -  Albinos
 Lee  Tong  Juan  -  Singapore  Fireworks
 
 Wayne  (HK)  -  Blue  Knight,  Red  Cover,  Eruption
 
 From  Malaysia
 Ung  Seng  Lip  -  Red  Golden  Diamond  and  Albinos
 EK  Goh   -  Ring  Leopards
 Lim  Pei  Hao  -  Penang  Super  Eruption
 
 So  many  strains  so  little  money   Thumb Down

 Has  HK  been  a  safe  place  to  buy?  Not  for  me.
 
 Wayne  might  be  an  exception.
