Discus.com is the only fish website that provides actual customer photo reviews for purchased fish. Our review portal is the most advanced of its kind, and we offer this feature because we are extremely confident in our products and feel that it’s important to provide customers with a real and honest sense of what ownership is like.

In addition to providing our viewers with delightful aquarium design ideas, these photographs are intended to illustrate the variability and wide spectrum of a fish’s appearance. Factors affecting appearance include temperature, stress level, diet, aquarium shadow level and substrate darkness (the less and lighter, the more colorful the fish will be), in-water vs out of water, as well as differences between baby discus and adult specimens. Also, as discus enthusiasts, most of our customers are NOT professional photographers. Please keep these points in mind when enjoying the gallery.

The Red Cover arrived healthy and active. I noticed it it's a deep red but is a bit pale. I hope with some more time it will become a darker red as it continues to eat and acclimate to its new surroundings.

Amazing quality and outstanding color. Great job in picking out a quality discus. I cannot say in words how much this fish can pop with just it's color. Simply a jewel in the aquarium. Thanks!

Fish is a nice yellow but there are signs of peppering. Soot on the forehead/nose with freckling on body and black on the fins as well which is not shown on the website photo and/or customer photos. From Michael: any fish that is a member of the Pigeon Blood family, which includes: Silver Pigeon, Checkerboard, Red Eagle, Pigeon Leopard, etc., will have some degree of peppering. This is normal and to be expected. What we don't want to see is excessive peppering throughout the body -- that is a red flag for a very low quality fish.

First time ordering any fish online as I have relied on local fish stores for my aquarium. I wanted to build a community tank with discus as the centerpiece but the local store didn't have the huge selection of quality discus that is at Discus.com I was anxious purchasing expensive fish that I haven't seen in person but I was very pleased when I opened the bag with a healthy Classic San Merah inside. Absolutely stunning fish! Highly recommend. From Michael: the red will deepen in the coming weeks and months as the fish becomes adjusted to its new home. Be mindful that as part of our shipping process, we starve all of our fish for 48 hours in order to empty their stomachs.

Order 2 cardinal, 2 neon, and 2 green neon tetra. Based on the picture of the fish received, it appears I got 1 cardinal and 5 neon tetras. The color of these tetra do not match the images of the green neon tetra on this website. From Michael: Please carefully count the fish you received in a still photograph. Not only did you receive the correct fish, I provided plentiful extras for you.

Purchased a combination of cardinal, neon, and green neon tetra. They add a splash of color which looks amazing as they have started to school together. Of the two cardinals purchased I only received one where the red goes all the way back from the head and extends all the way down to the tail. Size was a little small for Fat AAA grade relative to the Jumbo neon tetra shown beside it in the attached image. From Michael: David, the cardinals are seasonal. Since these are all wild-caught, we are at the mercy of the fish lords depending on the season.

Nice jet black ram. The second black ram that was in the same bag had some interesting accents of blue on black color sadly didn't make it alive upon arrival. The one that made it alive is doing very well and showing a lot of personality in a small package. Appreciated the customer service of giving a credit for the DOA fish.

Received my order that was late due to shipping! Luckily none of the Discus died. They were all beautiful! The reason I am giving a mediocre review is due to the lack of consideration or professionalism Micheal provided, when I reached out about believing I received the wrong fish. I quote “ You ordered baby fish, bro. It will take them time to color up.”. I actually never complained about the colors. Considering he spent 36hrs in a box he looked really good. He just looks nothing like a Silver Pigeon Leopard that they advertise. By the end of the discussion Michael told me if I wanted fish that looked like that I needed to order older fish, so I asked if my fish; in a year or two would like that and Michael said it would. We shall see. From Michael: UPS being late was completely out of my control, but you had nothing to worry about. If the fish were dead due to a late delivery, I would have shipped you a replacement order free of cost. Now, addressing your appearance comment: it's exactly what I told you over the phone. If you study my previous order reviews, the most common complaint is small fish not resembling my pictured adults. Baby discus won't grow into their final colors and patterns until they reach 4-5 inches. Based on your provided photo, I'm quite proud of my selection I made for you. It's interesting how you mentioned they were "all beautiful," yet you only provided a single negative review of the one fish in your entire order you were dissatisfied with.
