Cobalt Discus Fish (Symphysodon aequifasciatus)

The disucs fish is considered to be one of the most beautiful freshwater fish in the hobby. These fish have a wide variety of colors and patterns.

Best kept in large groups of 10 or more, these shy fish get along well with small community fish that can handle the high temperatures these fish can.

While the discus fish is recommended for advanced fish keepers, these fish are not impossible to keep. A well-balanced diet, a tank big enough to house many, and regular water changes are key items to successfully keeping these fish.
