Dear Tony,

On your large discus page you have a pic of 3 Snake spiders. I am interested in the fish in the Middle, is it still avaliable? If so I wantto purchase it after the Chrismas holiday. Also I am happy with the Breeding pair of Royal greens They just spawned yesterday. Please let me know.

Hi Tony,

I got the 4 Golden Snakes at 2:00 & they looked fantastic. I wished I had order 4 more. Your fish are always so healthily, they are very active & hungry. Also, your web site is just great & very current. I usually check it out once or twice a week. Thanks for the FINE fish! I'll be in touch & thanks again.

Hello Tony,
I am very very very mad and disappointed on this order!!!!
It's because I don't believe it arrive so early! The packing is too perfect! And the fish look healthy and good. No "clamp" fin shows on fish!
Hehehe, I bet the "Subject Line" of this email must get your attention as I am not sure how many "hard to satisfied" customer you have. LOL
I am pleased and happy with these transaction. The discus already in my quarantine tank (75 gallon) and they will be there for 1 month before I transfer them to another show tank. I will keep you update with the fish.
And again, thanks for the extra effort on individual packing with 3 bags. I know it must takes you lot's of time to individual bags these fishes.
Keep in touch.

Hello Tony,  Just wanted to let you know that all the discus arrived safely.  They are in their tank and doing great.  RSG's look beautiful and the little san merah looks like he will be a great looking discus.  Hey, they are already pecking around for food. Tony - how long were they bagged and boxed.  When did you take them to the AP?    Thanks a lot,  Bar

Good morning Tony,
I bought 2 pairs of Discus from you and all of them are doing extremely
well. They already spawn more than 3 times with 80% successfully rate.
I am very happy. You sure have good quality Discus!
I would like to place another order from you and would be nice if you  can return my call and we will go from there.

Just to let you know the fish are doing wonderfully and are acclimating
well with the existing discus.  I am so pleased with my purchase and I
hope to do business with you in the future.  On another note I wanted
to inquire about the blue angel pair you have on your website.  Are
those not for sale or have you sold those to someone else?  Just wondering.

Everything is ok so far. Fish look great even though I was quite worried that I could not get to pick them up as soon as they were in.

They came out in much better shape (so far and I hope this will continue) than fish I had shipped from xxxx which must have been a much shorter transit time,

although I had them delivered door to door so that may have added to the time. I wish I had known about your store before and appreciate the concern and the call especially.

Hi Tony;

Thanks for all your help, received my fish this AM, 10:45. They are doing quite well, I will mail payment for the Cardinals tomorrow.

Thanks Again;

Tom Curth



Good evening Tony,

The fish arrived in fine condition at exactly noon today. A teen-age kid came up the driveway in a white van and, with a broad smile, asked: "Live fish? What do you do with them, eat them?"

They are adjusting in a 20 gallon tank, a bit large for them now. They all have nice shapes. The green diamond is a bit brighter than I would have expected for its age. I fed them a very small portion of blood worms this evening.

So thanks again, Nick

From Nick L.

The fish you sent me last month are doing fine, considering that two would

not eat for a while. Two of the three snowfires were intimidated by the other and ate little until their

quarantine was ended early and they were placed in a large tank with adult

discus who paid them little attention. They could roam a large space cleaning

up the little food particles. In the last week since I returned from Montreal,

they have regained vigor and a little weight and are taking all foods

The other snowfire is of course almost twice their size. The ocean green is so

ferocious that I put it another tank with adult discus

An interesting story:

Hi Tony,
Both the gold pigeons are males.  I had two females that were spawning together
but one of the new males fixed that problem as you can see in the picture.
Also the pair of virgin reds are raising a very nice size spawn.  I think I got 4
from you last year. I lost one to bloat from feeding bad blackworms.  They are very pretty fish and the photo doesn't do them justice.  The fish in the picture is covered in fry, but they are hard to see. 
Thanks for the fish.  They always do great.

Hi Bill,
I am so happy to know that the new male Golden Sunrise/Pigeon was doing a great job shooting out something valuable LOL.
You received it on Wednesday, and he shot the stuff out on Thursday? Are you sure he is the one you got from me on Wednesday? You didn't quarantine the new fish? LOL.

Hi Tony,
I put him in with the two female golds.  They're isolated.  Since I got almost all my fish
from you, I don't worry much.  I'm sure that's the one I got from you. The other one with the long point on his dorsal fin is in another tank with 2 female and 1 male gold pigeon..They're
working out their living arrangements.  Anyway, by Wednesday night the male in the picture was off
in the corner of the 100 gallon tank pecking on the side with the female. I put them in a 40 gallon tank
and when I got home from work on Thursday night there were eggs.  I didn't expect them to be fertile but
as you can see they almost all were.   He's doing a good job caring for the spawn as well.

couldnt find anyone willing to sell theirs and did not like the
ones i saw on alot of these internet discus dealers.It was not a hard choice to put my trust you since you put pictures of the actual fish that you were selling. I will not think twice about buying from you Toni thank you so much.

Hello Tony and all at Sunrise Tropicals,
     I am emailing you because I got the three new
discus that I ordered from you a few days ago and now
they have adjusted to my tank.  I must say that they
are beautiful and are all eating well.  This is the
third time I have ordered from you and each time you
have not let me down in service, shipping, and fish
quality.  I truly appreciate your business because the
fish make my life a little more interesting.  Thanks
again for everything.

The seven discus I ordered arrived late this morning. 
They are in good shape and very pretty.  One thing I like about
ordering discus from you is that I can see actual pictures of the
fish before they are shipped.  I have now ordered a total of 13
discus from you in the past 4 months and have been pleased with
all of them.  The 2 1/2 inch red spotted greens and shooting stars
I ordered a few months ago are already just over 4 inches and still
growing!  Thanks for providing a variety of quality discus. 
I will continue to recommend you to other hobbyists.

Hi Tony
Your baby RSGs are growing like weeds and are still the healthiest I have ever seen. I did not have the heart to throw the little test fish you gave me into the tank with the sick fish. He is starting to get a little color and even if he don't develop all the way, he will have a nice comfortable life.
Have A Great Day

Hi Tony,
The fish arrived..Nice fish and nice packing job once
again.  Very healthy looking, very peaceful, relaxed fish. 
I'm adding 4 40 gallon breeder tanks to my system.  I may
consider a wholesale order in a few months and try to sell them
online and locally.  Also, keep an eye out for interesting affordable pairs
for me.  Thanks again

Hi Tony!
Hey, I was actually going to write you and let
you know how they are doing!
Many thanks for asking about them, they are
great!  I still have all 8 of
them and they are doing super!  They are getting
huge, and all are in
excellent shape.  Not a mark on them, excellent
fins, etc. They have abig
tank to themselves, with a colony of Zebra plecos
sharing the tank. They have
been perfect since day one, never ill, nothing. I
feed them tons of frozen
bloodworms, live blackworms, frozen brine, live
mosquito larvae and they even
eat a little flake now and then, earthworm flakes
being their favorite. They
also really like the Hikari freeze dried
Next week they are in for a big surprise, as I am
putting them into their
very own 240 gallon show tank.  It is going to be
all for them, heavily
planted, and I have my little fingers crossed
that maybe, someday, they
decide to take a shot at breeding. I know, big
dreams I have, but no harm in
trying.  Either way, they should be in heaven
with 240 gallons all their own.
 I wonder how big they will get?!
I haven't found them to be difficult at all, but
I also take very good care
of them. I do water changes every couple of days,
I have 3 filters on the
tank, keep them at a steady 85 degrees, and feed
them the very best foods, in
large quantities! And of course, I started off
with super healthy, awesome
fish from you, with nothing wrong with them! And
I thank you again for that,
I am delighted with them.
Next on my wish list is Discus, so when I am
ready for a few, you are the guy
I am calling.  I would love to grow a few up,
pair them off, and work with
babies, they are such magnificent fish, and yours
look really nice!
Thanks again Tony for asking about the "kids."  I
haven't seen you auctioning
on AquaBid lately, but I do look for you to see
what else you might have, big
Best wishes,
Barbara Bean
PS When I get the Altums into the 240, I'll see
if I can get some decent
photos to send yah!

HI Tony!
         This is a wonderful morning! I woke up to find the fry swiming around and on the parents.  Now I can finally honestly say I am amongst the ranks of discus breeders :-) only about 30 but for a first laying and first clutch. I wont complain :-)
Scott (CA)
These fish are wonderful. They are not only what I wanted they are the healthiest fish I have ever had. they are all bright and alert They have eaten twice since I got them 6 hours ago and are all over the tank. Already they come up to the glass when I walk by, none of my other fish did that. I am very happy and hope to get more fish from you in the future. I hope you don't hold the miscommunication against me.
Gary (OR)
Hi Tony,
The discus came in today in good shape. Nice fish.  They do
seem like they like each other..time will tell..
Keep an eye out for red white pairs for me. I need one more good
pair. I have the young adults from the Marlboro Reds I've bought from you in the past. Some of them don't have a speck of pepper on them
anywhere. I should get some pairs from them soon.
