New Discus - Pictures
Here is a picture of the new blue diamond discus that we introduced to our community tank:
Here he is with pigeon blood yellow cross:
WOW very bright. nice fish.
Beautiful fish! Truly they are the gems of the aquarium world.
They are handsome fish. Wish you the best of luck. When the ones I cared for were small,, they loved tetra color bits and freezedried spirulina based Brine shrimp. I tried to keep them with danios,rams,cardinal tetras,and juvenile Angelfish ,but they could not compete for food. I ended up placing them in 80 gal with only sterbai corydoras and trumpet snails.
How to the discus fit into the community? Any problems?
I would love to get a big discus tank, but want more in the tank than discus. Specifically on the cichlid front, I notice you have rams and kribs?
Edit: Also, bloody wonderful fish.
These guys were brought up with angels so they are aggressive when it comes to feeding. They get right into the mix. :)
They eat tetra flakes, freeze dried tubifex worms, hikari pellets and live blood worms.
They are currently in a 55 gallon community but when the angels and discus get a bit bigger I will move them to a larger home.
Those fish have to be the most popular of all fresh water fish....
I personally wanted to make my 120 gallon a Discus tank......
but after seeing the Mbuna's behavior my wife and I stayed
with these guys.... If I can get a 150 gallon tank I think I will
have Discus.... I have to have them at least once in my
You have a some wonderful looking fish.....
