A Message from Michael Li, Creator of Discus.com -- the World's Finest Boutique For the World's Most Collectible Fish

Michael Li: Webmaster, Customer Service Ambassador, Discus Aficionado

Hello, I'm Michael Li, and I am a professional software engineer, aquarium enthusiast, and the creator of Discus.com. I grew up in West Lafayette, Indiana, and have been keeping discus as a hobbyist since 2003. I currently reside in New York City with my family, where I own and operate a software contracting firm while somehow finding time to breed fish and rare tortoises! I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from Columbia University's School of Engineering & Applied Science in 2009.

I built Discus.com during one cold winter in 2013 because I wanted to share my love of the natural world with like-minded individuals passionate about wildlife and discus fish. Discus are aptly named the "King of the Aquarium" for very good reason, because in the aquarium hobby, this magnificent fish is second to none and requires no explanation! I believe the discus to be the greatest cichlid in the hobby, and the world needs a high-end marketplace for this incredible species.
