How much does a discus fish cost?
Quality discus fish range in price from $18 up to $150. You have to be careful when purchasing discus fish for less than $18. Usually very cheap discus fish are low quality. Low quality discus fish are stunted meaning that they are not perfectly round.
In addition, cheaply priced discus fish may also have genetic issues such as very large eyes in comparison to the body or very small eyes in proportion to the body. Another reason why cheaply priced discus fish are not good quality is because they usually are injected with growth hormones to enhance the colors and make them grow large quickly. Hormone injected discus end up having health issues, do not live long and will most likely not reproduce and if they do reproduce the offspring will be very low quality with similar issues. Remember that you get what you pay for and the same rule applies to discus fish.
What kind of fish can live with discus?
Slow moving fish such as tetras, cory cats and ram fish can live with discus. Other compatible discus tank mates include clown loaches. Bottom dwelling fish do well with discus because they do not interfere with the discus and do not compete against the discus for food.
How long does a discus fish live?
Under the proper conditions a discus fish can live around 6 years.
Proper conditions include a large enough tank for the discus to swim and grow, proper filtration, proper heating, regular water changes and proper food.
Are discus easy to keep?
Discus are fairly easy to keep with the proper aquarium setup and maintenance. While discus fish are not meant for beginners, they are still pretty easy to keep. You must do your homework before purchasing discus fish to make sure that you will be successful.
Can I put discus in a community tank?
Yes, discus can be put in a community tank considering that the community tank has the right water parameters and the proper discus fish tank mates. Discus fish tank mates are usually slow moving fish and bottom dwellers that will not compete against the discus for food.
