Discus – Symphysodon sp.

Discus Community - Please research how to keep these beautiful fish before purchase.   

These fish are still only small and therefore are darker in colouration. As they mature they will become the bright, vibrate discus you know and love.                                                                                                       

Discus are, arguably, amongst the most beautiful of all tropical fish in the world. They are members of the cichlid family but are unlike most other cichlids in their requirements and behaviour.  They enjoy being kept in groups, only moving away from the group during breeding.

They prefer a deep and spacious, well planted aquarium with slightly acidic soft water . They prefer warmer water than most other tropical fish.

Adult Length:  15cm

Temperature Range 28-30°C

pH Range: 5.4-7

Special Requirements:  Excellent water quality and a mature clean aquarium is essential. Many people use RO water to keep them, especially in hard water areas.

Tanks Mates:  They prefer a species only tank although many people keep them with Cardinal Tetra very successfully which can make a stunning display.

Feeding:  Discus are carnivorous. They like live or frozen food such as Tubifex or Bloodworm although they will be happy with a good quality discus pellet.

    I purchased 5 assorted Discus 3 - 4cm on 30th September 2020, they arrived well packed and on the day stated. They soon settled into their new surroundings and are now about 8 - 10 cm in length and are colouring up nicely and look very healthy. The only other fish in the tank are Corydoras although in my other Discus tank I have Rummy nosed tetras which fit in very well.
