Discus

Discus fish belong to the South American Cichlid family. They are one of the most beautiful tropical fish in the hobby. Although in the wild their color is designed to blend into the natural surroundings, they have been bred to a large variety of colors ranging from an intense electric blue to beautiful shades of red. These fish require the hobbyist to be experienced in fish husbandry due to their somewhat delicate nature. Their aquarium and water needs to be well maintained for best results. These are a schooling fish and do best with groups of 3 or more. Single fish tend to do poorly. One of the more fascinating aspects of discus is the parental style. To watch a mated pair taking care of their young is very rewarding. For someone trying their hand at discus for the first time we suggest getting older fish in the 3” plus range. Stop in and ask our fish experts about getting started with discus.
