As the name implies, the body of the Red Marlboro Discus is disc shaped with full dorsal and anal fins reaching to the tail. The body can reach to 8 to 10 inches in diameter. In the wild, Red Marlboro Discus are found in very soft, acidic (ph< 7.0) water and prefer to live among the submerged roots. In the home aquarium you need to provide plenty of cover. Juvenile Red Marlboro Discus can tolerate large schools while the adults may start to pair off and defend territories. Discus are rather intolerant of poor water quality, so regular partial water changes must be made and proper filtration maintained at all times. When under stress, most Discus will turn very dark and may clamp their fins and refuse to eat.

Petsolutions Discus are from an award winning German breeder. The breeder is the winner of 9 out of 13 awards at the 2005 American Cichlid Association conference, including best in show. These fish arrive at our facility with amazing color, even the medium fish showing more color than commonly seen in smaller Discus. The large size fish is an absolutely breathtaking exhibit
