In 1965, the married couple Helga and Heinz Stendker laid the foundation for what would later have a decisive influence on the world of discus aquaristics.
The brothers Jörg and Volker Stendker made the company what it is today, the largest discus farm in Europe, known worldwide for their robust and beautiful animals.
The fact that it was economically possible to breed tropical ornamental fish from the Amazon in Germany borders on a miracle. Yes… it was economically possible.
The last few months have hit us hard, drastically increased energy prices and a significant drop in sales have forced us to make a decision that we would not have thought possible a few months ago. The closure of discus breeding.
We will probably stop breeding on August 31, 2022 and sell the remaining stock by December 31, 2022. We will fight to the end to ensure that each of our animals gets a new home.
We will continue to produce our feed, both the Good Heart and the ORIGINAL STENDKER granules, beyond December 31, 2022 and continue to offer them through specialist retailers.
Thank you for making it possible for us to turn our hobby into a profession and we hope you continue to have fun with your STENDKER discus fish.
