In 1970, John Pasche designed the Rolling Stone’s logo for less than $100. In it’s evolution, it has become one of the most recognizable logos in history. Cherry red lips with a peek of white teeth, thin black accents to add a bit of exaggeration. You know the one. It screams Rock N Roll, drools liveliness and whispers a bit of fun. The epitome of cool lies in reds, blacks and whites.

Enter the Fuji Red Discus- the embodiment of the palette of Rock itself. Unlike the Fiamma Rosa, the Fuji Red discus has a black halo effect on its outer rims. A pearly mask stands alone in a sea of vibrant red. A dusting of black along the fins creates a halo. Dramatic; It makes a bold statement. You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find the Fuji Red Discus is the perfect drop of color in your tank.

    Hi Michael, I just want you to know all the fish I purchased from you is very healthy and eating. I’ve waited about a week like you said for the color. I am very happy with 4 of them but displeased with two. They don’t look anywhere near the photos on the website. Please let me know what we can do. The two fish are the golden leopard discus 3.5-4 in and the golden lollipop 3.5-4 in. Look forward from hearing from you. From Michael: Hi Danny, it’s great hearing from you. Your fish look spectacular in your setup. There’s nothing to be disappointed in, as you ordered baby fish. Please review our FAQs for more clarity.

    I was worried about salient peppering and dark background. The quality fish you sent have such light peppering that it isn't a problem. You ruined me, man...lol. I was going to get a saltwater, but now I'm going to simply get a bigger tank. These guys are worth it.

    Hi Michael. I am very happy with the fish you sent me. I got 9 Discus from you and the only thing wrong was I hoping for a solid color cobalt. The fish are all still healthy and good, I even have a pair that have laid five different sets of eggs since I received them.

    I just received my order today and can't express how happy I am with the quality of fish that I received. The discus were all in great condition, brightly colored, no rips in fins, and exactly what I ordered. On top of that - the fish that I received were twice the size in comparison to other discus dealers!!! The wait was a little longer than I expected, but my God it was well worth it. I will absolutely recommend you to others and will definitely order from you again. Thank you.

    Dear Mr. Li: After receiving a shipping, I noticed the Red Fuji Discus has a lot of black spots on gills and fins. I though that was from the natural born, but after 2 days, others fish stated having black spots on gills, fins, and body. On the day three, all the fish got it. I started raised the temperature to 88 and used API-General Cure for treatment. Try to hold off my second shipment for one week or two. Anything I can do to help my fish. I am new to discus. Thank you, An From Michael: The small black spots are what is called peppering in discus. It is normal for any pigeon strain, and does not indicate the fish are sick.

    Fish arrived healthy and happy. On the smaller side of what was ordered. Looks nothing like the pics. This fish is light orange NOT deep red... possibly a Melon? From Michael: John, as per my other comment on a different fish review you left, you should order adults going forward in order to avoid disappointing yourself. Babies take time to color and pattern up.

    Honestly at first, keeping discus has been terrifying, but now that we got through the horrors, honestly we love them so much. We realized that due to the stress their colors weren't showing as much but now that they've settled their colors are just as we expected. Michael, thank you for following up and helping us through this. I'm so happy we saved these babies. They're absolutely beautiful and such a pleasure to have in our home. We will definitely keep buying from you as we upgrade our tank size haha.

Natural Habitat for Discus

Discus are found in floodplain lakes and flooded forests of the lowland Amazon River basin and some of its tributaries, including the Rio Negro.  These areas experience extreme changes in water level due to seasonal flooding.  Discus tend to congregate near fallen trees, known as “galhadas”, along the shore.  They prefer quiet water, and are rarely found in areas where there is strong current or wave action.

Discus Water Requirements

Discus prefer warm, soft, acidic water.  pH should be between 6.0 and 7.0, with hardness between 1° and 4° dKH (18 to 70 ppm).  Temperature should be kept between 82° and 89° F. Water conditions for both wild and hybrid discus are the same. While captive bred discus can be kept in dechlorinated tap water  reverse osmosis or deionized water supplemented will ensure the the best conditions. Discus require pristine water quality, and depending on the filtration system being used, a weekly or bi-weekly water change of 10% to 25% is highly recommended. Don’t forget to treat tap water with conditioner before refilling your aquarium!  

Housing Requirements for Discus

Discus grow to be quite large, and full sized discus will require an aquarium of 50 gallons or larger when they reach adult size.  Tall aquariums are best, to accommodate their body shape.  Current should be gentle, and décor if used at all should include large broadleaf plants and driftwood that is arranged vertically to simulate downed branches and trees.  A few floating plants can also be added to provide shaded areas and cover. Substrate should be fine to medium grade and smooth surfaced, as discus like to forage along the bottom for food.

Discus Behavior/Compatibility

Discus are generally calm, peaceful fish, but as cichlids they can be aggressive toward one another, especially when attempting to pair off and spawn.  Shy or submissive fish should be removed if they are unable to compete. Most serious hobbyists do not mix their discus with too many other species. However, suitable aquarium mates include cardinal tetras, neons, emperor and rummy nose tetras, as well as clown loaches and dwarf cichlids such as rams and Apistogramma species. All of these fish tolerate the high temperatures and low pH/hardness required by discus.  

What do Discus Eat?

In nature discus eat a considerable amount of plant material and detritus, but also forage along the bottom looking for worms and small crustaceans.  They are omnivores and will thrive on freeze dried black worms, beefheart, frozen blood worms, and a variety of pellet and flake food. Frozen and live foods may be fed as treats or to help induce spawning.  For best results, rotate their diet daily and feed only what they can consume in 2 to 3 minutes, once or twice a day.

Discus Breeding Level – Difficult

Captive bred discus will pair up and spawn relatively easily, but young, inexperienced parents may eat their eggs the first few times, particularly if other fish are present.  After hatching the young feed on heavy body mucus secreted by the parents for a few days until they begin to free-swim.  Parents will transfer the young back and forth several times a day.
