Wild caught Altums from ColumbiaSeptember 2012 : No altums will be available until November
July 2012 : This season's altums are now under quarantine . I have managed to convince the exporter in Columbia to reduce the density by 60% ensuring that they are in with perfect finnage and much better acclimatising to tank conditions.
We have this season's first batch of Wild Altum Angels ,
They are doing very well and will be out of quarantine on the week ending the 5th August 2011 (SOLD OUT)
NEW STOCK out of QT 21st September 2011
EVEN NEWER STOCK!As the season, progresses the Altums are coming in at a larger size and having less in a box.These will be out of Qt in October 2nd
We are taking extra care and treatment on these to ensure that they are in good condition when they arrive at your door.
Water conditions for this is TDS at 15ppm and pH at 6
Unlike tank bred altums.the wild "true" Altums have exceptional high fins.
Update : Februuary 2012
The are as hardy as any domestic angels now ,from the feedbacks they are being mmixed with all sorts of tropicals and other angels.

Whilst ordering these Altums from Columbia,I took the opportunity to add some wild plecos to the order:
L168 Butterfly Pleco maximum size is 5.5"
L 134b Golden Spotted Pleco Max. Size 4.5"
This would compliment the discus and altums nicely
