This giant blue red German monster is sure to add a powerful touch to even the most complete collection. Streaks of blood red run through an iridescent body, creating the classic “Red Turquoise” effect originally pioneered by Eduard Schmidt-Focke.

One constant that has run through my life has been a love of art. While I mostly like realistic works, there’s something to be said for artists who express themselves in bold paint strokes. My mother had a painting done by a family friend that was of a woman but her face was done in a style more reminiscent of Picasso in his surrealistic stage. There was still something evocative about the painting that showed inner turmoil.

I get the same feeling when I look at the German Red Turquoise Discus, with its red base. It feels like nature decided to paint it with a frenzy of red and white brushstrokes all along its body. There’s almost a tribalistic feel to it, especially with the patterns around its eyes and mouth. It would not surprise me one bit if those colors actually glowed in the dark, making for an ethereal scene in a tank. There’s passion in these streaks, showing what a unique fish it is. I’d love having one or more in my tank, showing off their vibrancy.

    Thanks 4 the e-mail Michael! Fish are doing great!!! Thank 4 the sweet fish! I will be getting a few more fish in May.....the fish were packed great! But after they left you!.... they were not handled right.... they were beat up pretty badly! My order was to big and thats my bad :) If the carrier does not keep the box the right way the whole time the fish will get beat up and stress out and are in trouble! All fish survived and in the time since have only Lost 3 of them! Love your Web site i have to be on it everyday and see all the great selections You have! (I want all of them!!) Hahahaha thanks again 4 everything Michael!



    They eat all that You can put in front of them! The golden pigeon leopards are getting better looking everyday and are always moving around the tank and active! My favorite guys are the german red turquoise (red base) ... they have a great shape to them and the fins are always up and out on display!! And the royal heckel cross! Cant wait to see what he will be look like in a few months! Beautiful fish!! Thanks y'all! I appreciate ya.

    All fishies received! They seem “tired” maybe sedated but all are upright and calm and being acclimated. One question... I notice they all look kinda the same and I know 3 I ordered DO look kinda the same so no question there. Will the turquoise one I ordered start to show more turquoise as it ages and will anything help me indicate which one he is out of the group since right now they all kinda have similar colors? Obviously the very turquoise one in the photo below is likely much more mature, where I see in the lower picture, maybe younger ones so the color maybe is just not quite as there yet? Very happy with everything so far! Took video opening them. Will take more throughout acclimation and release!

    Hi Michael, this was one of the best purchases online I ever experienced. From the selection of fishes, placing the order online to the delivery. It was all a very smooth and well thought out process. I was really impressed with customer service and information available on your website for Discus lovers like me. I learned a lot from the training course you offer to improve my knowledge of Discus. I will be ordering more Discus fishes in near future. --Syed

    Good morning! The discus just arrived! They are beautiful! They were very cold at 69 degrees. I hope they will be ok!  I thought the red was dead, but today, Friday, seems ok this morning. Also, a lot of the water leaked out during shipping, but they are so beautiful! My current discus is harassing/herding them. I have the lights turned off and feeding a bit more often, any suggestions? It’s a blue diamond about a half inch bigger than the new ones.





    Thank you!

    This discus is doing very well. It has become much more active over the past couple of weeks and is starting to color up pretty nicely. He was fairly small so I am sure he will continue to color up.

    All of the fish arrived safely and are now settled in and are loving life. They look great and we are very happy with them. Thank you. I sent them all in a few different emails because it wouldn't let me send them all in the same one. Hope you get them all. We look forward to doing more business with you in the near future.
