Discus 9cm Various Imported

Discus fish are one of the most beautiful and colorful fish in the aquarium hobby. They have a unique shape and bright colors that will brighten up any tank. However, they can be a bit of a challenge to keep. With the right setup and care, they can thrive and be a beautiful addition to your tank.

Discus fish come from the Amazon Basin in South America, where they live in soft, acidic waters. They grow to a mature size of 15-20 centimeters in length. In order to keep them healthy and happy in your tank, you will need to provide them with the right water parameters. The ideal temperature for Discus fish is 26-30°C, with a pH of 6.0-7.0 and a water hardness of 2-4°dGH.

Discus fish are not only beautiful, but they are also quite delicate, which means that you need to be very careful with what you feed them. They require high-quality, protein-rich food, such as frozen or live worms, brine shrimp, and bloodworms. Discus fish also require a diet that is varied, as they can be prone to diet-related health problems.

When it comes to setting up a tank for Discus fish, it is important to provide them with plenty of swimming space and a soft substrate. A good rule of thumb is to provide them with a minimum of 100 liters of water per fish. In addition, they do best in tanks with a gentle current and a good filtration system.

When it comes to tank mates, Discus fish are best kept with peaceful, non-competitive fish. Some good options include tetras, rasboras, and angelfish. Avoid keeping them with larger, aggressive fish, as they can be quite territorial and cause stress to the Discus fish.

In conclusion, Discus fish can be a bit of a challenge to keep, but with the right setup and care, they can be a beautiful and rewarding addition to your tank. Just remember to provide them with high-quality food, the right water parameters, and plenty of swimming space, and you'll be sure to have a happy and healthy Discus fish for years to come!

At Aquaholics, we place utmost importance on the careful shipping of live fish to ensure their safe arrival. Our commitment to quality includes taking various measures during transit.

However, we understand that unforeseen circumstances can sometimes lead to unfortunate outcomes. To provide you with peace of mind, we have implemented a Dead-on Arrival (DOA) policy that ensures you are covered in such situations.
