you are looking for fish that are interesting as well as beautiful than
discus cichlids are the perfect choice for you. With discus cichlids you
will never be bored.
Discus cichlids are fresh water fish that come from the Amazon Rivers. They
were discovered in the 1940ís although they were not successfully bred in
captivity until the late 1950ís. Now you can find many different types of
discus cichlids, including a wide variety of hybrids.
If you are just starting out with discus care and you are not sure what type
of discus cichlids to buy and raise, there are a few types that are easier
than others. A good choice for a starter discus is the Brown Discus. This
fish is relatively inexpensive due to mass breeding and it is easy to care
Another good choice for people who are starting out with discus cichlids is
the Blue Discus. This fish is more expensive than the Brown discus, however
as the name implies, it does have more color. There are blue lines from the
head to the flanks, and the more lines that the fish has, the more expensive
the fish will be.
Discus cichlids are very rewarding fish to raise, although some people think
of them as very difficult fish to keep. Discus fish get the reputation as
finicky fish because they like their water to be just right. Discuses enjoy
optimum water conditions including the proper pH levels, soft water, and
water free from chemicals and additives.

fish to raise and breed. And they will provide you with hours of
