"German Brilliant Discus Fish" (green hue) 3 inch


Product Description

German Brilliant Discus Fish (green hue) this beautiful solid turquoise discus fish shows off an iridescent green over the entire body. This blast from the past, breathtaking discus fish was introduced in the late 1980’s from German brood stock. The German Brilliant Discus fish is very round, and will grow to 8 inches. The nine vertical bars fade away as the fish reaches adulthood and are rarely displayed. This is a magnificent discus fish in a planted aquarium, the turquoise green accents well with the green plants. The German Brilliant Discus is a beautiful addition to any tropical fish tank.

Discus fish are native to the slow and warm tropical waters of the Amazon River. They eat a variety of fresh water shrimp, worms, insects, and aquatic vegetation. In the wild, discus fish colors are limited to a few varieties which are earth tone in color. This helps to protect them from predators by allowing them to blend into their natural habitat. Through selective cross breeding, tank raised discus fish are now available to the hobbyist in a wide range of vivid colors, like the German Brilliant Discus Fish.

  1. Love this little guy! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Sep 2017

    We ordered 4 Discus from Steve. And having a German heritage I had to order this one. He arrived in perfect shape and his colors are coming through. He is so beautiful and as soon as I walk in the room all of them are up front wanting food. I love this fish!

  2. Thank You 5 Star Review

    These guys are absolutely beautiful and I am looking forward to placing another order this weekend. I would also like to thank you for taking the time and showing me your fish room and giving me pointers. So many people in the fish hobby/trade do not do that and I am grateful. You know what you are doing and I am glad I was able to meet you in person.

    Thanks again!

    This discus is very green in color, it is a nice color mix with my other fish. All of the fish are happy, healthy, eating well, and growing fast. They all had no problem acclimating to our other discus in the tank.

    Posted by on 15th May 2016

    The fish is 2.25".quite bluish. It has not developed
    The green hue. still too young. However, the color is light blue and has the black stripes pronunciated. Is healthy and eating well.

  5. Thanks for aother great shipment to Texas 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Sep 2015

    Arrived in great shape, but is the shy one in the bunch. At first wanted to stay hid except at feeding time but after a week it is starting to be a part of the group. He has a great color which was more than I am expected.,. Another good addition.

  6. Very Happy! 5 Star Review

    I had one of these shipped with a couple others and they are all amazing! No problems with shipping/acclimating the new fish. The color is already showing through on this one and the shape is perfect for a show discus. I can't wait to see how it looks as it matures! I already placed a second order with Mac's!

  10. Very Eye-Catching 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Aug 2014

    I ordered the German Brillinant in addition to the red spotted green and a 6 pack (which was an impressive selection)...
    Rather than the green Mac describes, mine is more of an irridescent sky blue with a gun-metal grey towards the center of his body, and his eyes are red. His color pattern reminds me of a thunder cloud with blue lightening for a face and fins. He is a really beautiful fish and draws the eye against the black background and greens of my planted 55 gallon.. I wish I could post a pic for you to see. I imagine a school of these would be spectacular.
    This discus was laying down and seemed to be the most stunned of all the fish when I first unboxed them, but before I could net them into the tank he popped up like nothing had happened. He occasionally showed fatigue once in the tank, but has rebounded great and within 24 hours is eating and swimming around healthy and just fine.
