About me and this website..


If  you are reading this page, then  you have stumbled onto  a  great resource for  Discus Hobbyists  everywhere.    This website is all about Discus. It will  cover  everything  from the basic care and husbandry needed to  keep  Discus  to solving  problems you have  going  on inyour tanks. It will also  cover  foods, nutrition,  environmental  considerations.  I will give  you  insight on  how to set up  your tanks, where to buy  your stock, and  how to treat that stock when  you  receive it. Lastly  I will share with  you  my  knowledge and  hard earned experience as a  Discus Keeper these  last  20 years.

I am  still learning about  discus  myself,  but I am  not new to discus at all.  I  have spent many years in this hobby, spoken at many events on the subject of Discus.  I have bred Discus, sold discus, imported  wild discus,  founded Discus  Groups, and  have  run  one of the largest and most successful Discus Forums on the Internet, SimplyDiscus.com


Discus are  in my Blood, and  I wish to share my love  of this  fish with all of you and  share what I have  learned along  way.

If you want to follow along as this site grows,  you can easily subscribe to it and  you will get email notices when  something new is  up.

Thank you,

Al Sabetta, aka Brewmaster15

About me, the  person: I am a  father  of two awesome kids that my wife   and I have raised with all the love we  could  give.  I am a  biologist by education,  and  I own a  small  fish food business.  When I am not talking Discus,  I  am probably talking Blackworms, the core  product  of  my fishfood business. You can visit me there at Aquaticsuppliers.com.  I am involved in many other things and consider myself  an advanced  Hobby Photographer, Reptile  breeder and  homebrewer of Ales and Meads.  I am a  survivalist, traditional Archer, and  D.I.Y fanatic. ..but always  foremost, I am a  Dad and  Husband. I am  sure all these  things will creep into this  website over time.

  4. Al,

    Thank you for the shipping tips. I just shipped two shipments of my fish. I did not want to ship them but wanted to make way for aquarium changes. Out of 15 fish 10 died. I was brokenhearted! If I had read your shipping article I think they would have all arrived alive. I didn’t twist the bag over to shut it. The rubberbands were not tight enough and the water leaked out.

    I need more of your blackworms. Will send you an order.

    1. Sheila,
