Discus Fish

To look at these fish can be awesome, they have soft stripes and a rainbow type shimmer to the scales. However I would seriously only recommend these fish to experienced owners. I have owned a lot of fish in my time but these are incredibly difficult to look after.

They require a variety of food and being slow fish, they are not suitable to be housed with faster fish. The Discus' will not fight for food and because they are slower they will end up not getting feed and then can get ill very easily.

Personally I would not recommend these fish but of course it really does depend on what purpose you have for them, but I would advise against them for the unexperienced owner or family tank.
