Discus Fish

 We offer 3 varieties of Discus Fish for your aquarium needs.

Discus are a genus of three species of cichlid freshwater fish native to the Amazon River basin in South America. Discus are usually shy but generally peaceful aquarium inhabitants. They are sensitive to stress and disturbance or lack of protection. The best cohabitants are angelfish and small tetras. The discus is a social fish and lives in large groups in their native waters, and has a very advanced social behaviour; they are one of the few real schooling cichlids. Remember to keep this in mind when starting care for discus and always purchase more than one. They need social interaction to develop their character to its best potential. Discus do better in deep tanks. All discus require excellent water quality with little movement of water as they do not like strong currents. Discus require higher temps of no less than 79 and up to 86 degrees.


Discus are a great addition to many aquarium environments.  If you are unsure if adding a discus to your aquarium will adversly affect your other fish, please take a look at the aquarium compatability chart below.

 

 

We Offer 3 Varieties of Discus:

 

White Discus

 

 

The White Discus has been selectively bred for its brilliant white coloration. The body is mostly white in color, and the fins have a faint green and red coloration. These Discus can display some small black spots on the body that increase and darken when stressed. These are a good indication of water conditions and compatibilities in the aquarium. The overall coloration of Discus will vary depending on mood and overall health of the fish. The Discus has surpassed the Angelfish as the most popular freshwater aquarium fish.  The White Discus requires an advanced level of care due to its feeding habits and water filtration requirements. Because they are slightly territorial when breeding, it is best to breed an established pair, or maintain a group of young Discus and allow them to pair themselves. Warm, soft, slightly acidic water is required for spawning. The pair will clean a flat surface (usually a broad leaf or the side of the aquarium) prior to spawning. The parents must not be removed from the fry; the fry feed on their parents' mucus.

Red Eagle

 

Red Eagle Discus are a well sought after variety due to their coloration and pattern.  They look similar to a Pigeon Blood Discus, but they have more plain white faces, somewhat resembling a bald eagle. Some people call them Red Carnation Discus as well.  These Discus do not usually have any “peppering” on their body (black spots that may/may not show on Pigeon Bloods).
