This beautiful 1 year old Red Scarlet discus fish breeder pair, has many years of spawning ahead. They are breeding on a regular basis and after each spawning leaning their parenting skills to raising their brood. A true bargain at the listed price
The Red Scarlet discus fish grows to 6 to 7 inches and will reach its full color potential at 12 to 24 months old. For maximum full red color feed a diet of frozen bloodworms, Omega One flake and freeze dried Krill.
Young Adult Discus Fish
Young adult discus fish 4 to 5 inches are a great size for aquariums 100 gallons and larger, also for customers wanting that instant gratification of a fully colored discus fish. At 4 inches and up discus fish are showing 90% of their adult colors as the picture shows. At this size, they are 7 to 8 months old and still have many years ahead. For breeders they will start to spawn within a month or two when they are this age. Young adults are a great addition to the aquarium and will add instant color giving the tank that WOW effect, very nice-very nice!!

I purchased 10 adult discus from Mac to fill my 75 gallon tank. They arrived on time and in great shape considering the trip they must have had. I acclimated them and by the next day they are eating like pigs. The colors of these fish are outstanding along with Macs customer service and packing. I could not have gotten fish like these from my local fish store. I have had these fish now for a month and they have adjusted well to their new home. I’m very happy I tried the mail order route and will buy more fish from this very reputable vender.
