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.
