This delightful discus is an excellent show fish for your tropical aquarium. Careful crossbreeding of various cultivated discus have produced this stunning discus. All of the vertical stress bars have been bred out of this particular variety of cultivated discus, creating a white to pale pink body. The head of the snow leopard discus is free from markings. The body, however, is covered with a stunning spray of closely clustered red leopard spots. The spotting also occurs on the dorsal, pectoral, and tail fins. The dorsal and pectoral fins also have a pattern of striations on them.
The snow leopard discus has a round, flat body. Its pectoral and dorsal fins extend almost all the way back to its tail fin, and they are quite full, adding to its round look. When full grown, the snow leopard discus will be approximately 8” long, and it is almost that tall. This large, round beauty makes a great addition to a freshwater, tropical aquarium. Discus are popular because of their large size, round, pleasing shape, and their interesting personalities. Because of the cultivation in breeding aimed at enhancing the color and patterns of the fish, discus make great show pieces for a tropical aquarium. Breeding of two snow leopard discus has interesting results, as some will be snow leopards, and others will be varying shades of white, pink, or red. They will also display assorted markings. Families of these round beauties will both amuse and delight you, as the snow leopard discus are very caring parents, and they have pleasant personalities. Once grown, you will have an impressive school of discus.

The Snow Leopard is very unique! Mine is the timid one of the bunch but boy is he beautiful! It arrived and looks like its picture by the next day if not within hours. Steve's Discus are top notch, in great health and are packed very well and shipped with great care. Steve cares very much about the welfare of the fish he sends out. When you receive these little guys you will know why, they are beautiful. I will be buying more discus from Macs very very soon.
