The tangerine dream discus is a stunning and vibrant discus that would be beautiful in any aquarium. It is a bright yellow-orange colored discus that has a pattern resembling spots on its mid region and striations that run across its fins. The facial region is yellow and this turns into a yellow red/orange color. The body is also a vibrant yellow but the outline of the spots is red-orange. Towards the tail end of the discus, the spot pattern disappears with the tail fin found in a reddish color. The dorsal and pectoral fins have striations but the fins leading towards the tail has spot patterns, as if they are cluttered together. In some places of the fins, like underneath the stomach or the edges of the tail, it is evident that there is a dark shade of brown running through the yellow background of the discus. These bold colors and patterns make this an eye catching discus among other types of fish.
Originating from the basin of the Amazon River, discus are disc shaped and they have the same height and length, making them very symmetrical and eye appealing. The fins run top and bottom running towards the tail excluding the face region. Their unique shape is a feature that makes them stand out among the rest of the inhabitants of an aquarium. They are peaceful in nature, non-hostile and are slow feeders. They can be kept in a group and their body will contrast against the green vegetation and make your tank exceptional.

Before ordering from MacDiscus, I've read multiple reviews from this website. I can tell you awesome customer service. Even at the last minute, Steve was able to ship my fish at a specific date. My Tangerine is gorgeous and bright. I recommend ordering from him any day. I ordered 5 discus including the Tangerine Discus

We purchased the tangerine dream discus as part of a larger order, and only had the basic description to go off of. What we got was a vibrantly colored, happy, and social fish that loves to be the center of attention, and can hold its own. Absolutely thrilled, and as always, the shipping and customer service from Steve were second to none!

As young as these fish are and as beautiful as they look, I can't wait to see them as they grow
and get their adult color.I would recommend Mac's Discus to any one.

I was afraid to buy on-line, but after emailing Steve a couple times i took the plung and purchased 6 fish (3 pairs of 3 different strains). Let me tell you I could not be happier! The Tangerine are such a vivid orage! What beautiful fish! All were very active once in the tank (follow the directions, you wont have an issue) and were eating right off the bat! Steve has a customer for life!

I ordered a variety pack with 10 discus. All are doing great and eating flake, granules and frozen/freeze-dried foods. The tank is heavily planted and has driftwood for hiding. I have only had them for 2 weeks but I have seen growth. They also adapted excellently from soft, acid water to Midwest hard.

I'm so happy with all of my discus. They are eating and active the colors are good. I will order from Mac again, I just hope they still have the two that I love the most.

They fish came as promised and are doing really well (day 3). I followed Steve's acclimation instructions exactly, and even sooner than expected, they fish were already very curious about me and sort of following me around and looking for food. i did wait until night time to feed them, which the gobbled up everything.
They are young so they look like the picture minus the "spotted pattern" which I heard comes as they get older. I am very happy with this purchase!

I got 2 of these Discus in my last order. They are spectacular. The picture does't do them justice. This was my second order and I'm very pleased with all the Discus I've received.
