Whether you’re a newcomer to the world of discus-keeping or a seasoned veteran, you might fancy yourself as a patron of the arts. By maintaining the right conditions for the health and well-being of these beauties, you are rewarded with moving masterpieces of color combinations and shifting patterns. Great painters who experimented with vivid colors, such as Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, and the Fauvists (les fauves, “the wild beasts”) took inspiration from nature — and the discus are themselves boldly colorful emissaries from the natural world. The specimens you put together create their own “schools” of art as they respond to the environment you provide them.

Choose your discus based on your personality type, color preferences, or even the next upcoming National Holiday! Grab a cup of coffee and read each color description to see if it fits your style!
