Dirk's Discus

An amazing fish!

The Discus fish is a type of Cichlid which is a very popular pet. Many aquarist opt to keep these disc-shaped fish due to their vast colour varieties and their relativley peacful nature. Discus are relativley easy to breed(once they have found the right mate). but they will only do so if they are kept in a large enough tank. They will lay their eggs onto porous surfaces such as a plant pot or rock and protect them until they hatch. Some fry may become food, but if you remove the parents, the fry will also die, as they feed off their parents.
