2.) How difficult are discus to keep?
Don’t believe the hype about Discus. Keeping Discus can be for everyone and is also quite rewarding. They do require a bit more attention than a goldfish. The smaller the Discus the more growing they will have to do. We recommend weekly water changes (40-80% volume), if you can do more then go for it.
3.) Where do discus come from?
Discus originate in the Amazon river in South America. We source our Discus from the finest Farms around Malaysia and Singapore.
4.) How big can discus grow?
Discus can grow up to 8 inches with proper care.
5.) How long do discus live?
If well treated discus fish can live for up to 10 years.
6.) What do discus eat?
Discus will eat almost anything. At our facility we mainly feed pellets, flakes, freeze dried black worms and homemade Beefheart mix. We recommend you feed them a variety of foods also. Be cautious with frozen foods, other than homemade Beefheart mix.

Generally between 5 to 8. Consistency is key. Our Discus are bred and raised off tap water. We maintain a 7.2 ph.
Temperature between 82-86
