Candy Apple Red Discus 2 inch


Product Description

The Candy Apple Red Discus Fish has a beautiful horizontal red stripe on a pale powder- blue body color. This discus fish is a descendent to the German Schmidt-Focke #14 red turquoise. They have a very round body and will grow up to seven inches. This is an outstanding fish for the hobbyist that would like to try breeding, as they are consistently prolific. Once they start spawning, they don’t quit. More often than not, I have seen this strain continue a spawning cycle for over a year before resting. So, if you would like a beautifully striped discus fish that does not give up on raising a brood of fry, this should be first on your list.

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 Candy Apple Red Discus.

    Posted by on 6th Dec 2014

    I have been a repeat customer of Mac's Discus since 1990 and have bought fish many times from Steve over the years. He has always shipped quality fish and provided great customer service.
    There is a reason Mac's has been in business for so many years.
    Keep it up.
