Discus are immensely popular aquarium subjects, available in a staggering variety of colours and patterns thanks to selective breeding. These majestic fishes require a spacious aquarium and excellent water quality to thrive. Although not recommended for beginners, Discus are a rewarding species to keep – it’s easy to see why they are sometimes referred to as the ‘king of all fishes’.

Red Coat Discus are an aquarium-bred strain featuring a red/orange background with many white/pale reticulations. Individual specimens may vary somewhat from the picture.
