The Red Marlboro Discus Fish, symphysodon spp, is a selective bred Discus for its brilliant unique red coloration. In the wild they are found in soft acidic water with a pH less than .7 and also prefer to live among the submerged plants and roots. The Discus’ from Thailand are usually more colorful due to hormone additives while the ones from Vietnam and Singapore are more naturally grown.
These fish are known for their high quality. Be sure to keep their water temperatures above 72 degrees Fahrenheit. If not, they will turn very dark in color, stop eating, and sometimes even clamp their fins. Their color changes depending on their mood, health, time of year, and feedings. With the use of color enhancing foods they will become more colorful over time.
If you are having trouble getting your Discus to eat we strongly encourage trying supplement feeding with bloodworms! They can be very finicky fish from the beginning, especially when placed in new surroundings.
