Hi Fin Cobalt Discus Fish, this was my Mac’s trademark discus fish. I bred thousands of this strain and sold to wholesale and retail pet stores throughout the United States, Mexico, and Canada in the late 80’s. This beautiful sky blue discus fish shows off a sail fin dorsal which is spectacular. The back streamer is typical for the male while the females back dorsal is rounded. It is very easy to tell males from female with this strain. I have witnessed on many pairs that once the female starts a spawning cycle she will not go into a rest period for 18 month. Today the Hi Fin Cobalt Discus Fish is still sought after for its sail fin dorsal and vibrant sky blue body. While the female hold on to their horizontal stripe the male fill in to a 90% solid colored body. The H.F. Cobalt discus is a hearty strain and males can grow up to 9 inches, showing off a thick cichlid forehead and round body. This discus fish is a great addition to your collection.
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 Hi Fin Cobalt Discus Fish.

I have ordered several batches of Discus from various online retailers over the last decade. This was my first order from Mac's and by far the quality of fish is amazing. Best coloration, best fin quality, very healthy fish.

I had looked at Macs Discus several times in years PAST ( I am not sure but think he used to advertise in years past in the aquarium magazines i have purchased in last 30 yrs of fish keeping)...BUT I WAS SKEPTICAL ABOUT ORDERING MY FISH ON LINE AND FEARFUL ABOUT THE QUALITY i'D RECEIVE. i am so EXTREMELY PLEASED WITH THE GORGEOUS FISH that arrived feb 12th...All ALIVE. i HEEDED THE PRECAUTIONS AND STEVES SPECIFIC SUGGESTIONS ON HIS FISH BLOG. i POURED OVER ALL THE INFORMATION. I own numerous books on discus health and some i must say they gave me conflicting info (follow Steves advice)....such as discus being schooling fish....I now know they are...WOW they do wonderfully in schools. another issue where i have made mistakes is I have been more concerned with water quality in times past than feeding my fish enough. They are babies...babies eat often! These eager, trusting, gregarious, little fish LOVE to eat and school and chase each other.
I ordered Steves 6 pack 2 1/2 inches in contrasting colors... all shipping paid. they traveled through a horrible cold spell in the USA and arrived safely, very tired, but safe and warm. Within 2 days they were no longer weak but fighting for food.
I received at Steves choice...a Gold diamond, a red melon, a white diamond, a red dragon, a red tiger and his signature High Fin Blue cobalt. They are as colorful and beautiful as a bouquet of flowers and they are juveniles! These are not thin arrowheads but already displaying beautiful body shape, some very round already. I hope you take the leap and purchase them for yourself...just have your tank completely prepared and ready for these little beauties.... they deserve it!!!
