Red Eagle Discus are a well sought after variety due to their coloration and pattern. Notice how these look like Pigeon Blood discus? But these have the more plain white faces, kinda resembles a bald eagle I guess, so thats why they are called Red Eagles? Some people may call these Red Carnation Discus as well, its the same thing. These discus do not usually have any “peppering” on their body (black spots that may/may not show on Pigeon Bloods).
Discus are a genus of three species of cichlid freshwater fish native to the Amazon River basin in South America. Discus are usually shy but generally peaceful aquarium inhabitants. They are sensitive to stress and disturbance or lack of protection. The best cohabitants are angelfish and small tetras. The discus is a social fish and lives in large groups in their native waters, and has a very advanced social behaviour; they are one of the few real schooling cichlids. Remember to keep this in mind when starting care for discus and always purchase more than one. They need social interaction to develop their character to its best potential. Discus do better in deep tanks. All discus require excellent water quality with little movement of water as they do not like strong currents. Discus require higher temps of no less than 79 and up to 86 degrees.
