The red ribbon pigeon discus will provide a splash of vibrant color to your freshwater aquarium. It has a delightful pattern of markings on it due to careful crossbreeding, and all of the vertical stress bars found in natural discus in the wild have been bred out. This stunning fish has a tan face, and a tiny bit of tan makes its way to the tail fin as well. Is face has white striations on it. The body of the red ribbon pigeon discus is covered in white and red striations in an irregular pattern, giving each of these beauties a one-of-a-kind appearance. The pectoral and dorsal fins of the red ribbon pigeon discus have red striations over white, and they form a more striped pattern. At the back of the pectoral and dorsal fins, close to the tail fin, the striations are more broken, appearing spotted.
This big, round beauty will add interest to your aquarium, and could easily be the star of your collection. The red ribbon pigeon discus will grow to a size of 8” in length. It will be almost as tall as it is wide, which gives the red ribbon pigeon discus its pleasantly round shape. Both the pectoral and dorsal fins of the red ribbon pigeon discus are full and rounded, which adds to its round appearance. Discus are known for their round shapes and vibrant colors, and this discus is a stunner. This is a beautiful fish that will take your discus collection to a higher level.

I recieved a Red Ribbon included in the Variety 6 Pack I ordered. What a wonderful surprise. His markings are a bit different than in the picture, as I imagine every strain has unique features among individuals. The stress bars have been bred out, and his face and back half of his body is a golden yellow, blended out into a fiery red once you get to the fins. There are translucent white striations throughout the fins, much like you see in the picture.
Starting just behind his face, to mid body , it looks as if he has been stippled in large red watercolor spots, leaving a beautiful pattern of red and white markings that blend softly into the yellow/gold.
He was shy upon acclimating to the tank, and stayed hidden behind my aquarium heater but within 24 hours is swimming out in the open quite boldly.
I LOVE this fish. You will not be disappointed.
