Rio Nanay Discus (Symphysodon aequifasciata)

Out of stock

Remarks: Wild Discus are a delicacy in the fishkeeping world. This strain comes from the Rio Nanay in Peru. They are often called Green Discus or Red Spot Green Discus.

Discus require softer water and higher temperatures than most South American fish. They are sensitive to high nitrates. 

Due to the sensitive nature of these fish, DOA claims will only be provided if photos show the fish in the unopened bag within two hours of delivery.
