Checkerboard Pigeonblood Discus Fish 2 inch

$49.95

This is one of the most stunningly beautiful cultivated discus, and it will make an excellent addition to your tropical fish collection. Discus are cultivated to enhance certain qualities and to breed out unwanted traits to achieve a particular look. The breeders of this beauty have eliminated all trace of the vertical stress bars found in wild discus. The colors have been enhanced, and a striking pattern has been produced in the red checkerboard pigeonblood discus. The head of this discus is a tan to gold color, and it has white striations on it. The rest of its body is a vibrant reddish orange color, and it is marked with white striations. The striations are irregularly shaped spots, and they are clustered in a close pattern in the center of its body. Closer to the fins, the striations are longer and more loosely patterned. Both the dorsal and pectoral fins of the red checkerboard pigeonblood discus also have white striations that vary in length and width. The tail fin of the red checkerboard pigeonblood discus is opaque and free of markings.

The red checkerboard pigeonblood discus is a large, vibrantly colored fish, and its shape makes it special among tropical fish. The red checkerboard pigeonblood discus grows to about 8” in length, and it is nearly as tall as it is wide. Its flat and round shape is enhanced by its full, rounded pectoral and dorsal fins. In your tropical aquarium, the size, and vivid coloring of the red checkerboard pigeonblood discus will make it a standout among your other fish.

As always gorgeous Discus and excellent customer service. The 2" discus are very healthy and eat everything I give them. Thanks to Mac's discus and staff. :)

The checkerboard pigeonblood is a beautiful discus.

Seeing a group of checkerboards,white diamonds,snow leopards,ocean greens, marbolo reds and ruby reds is one of most spectacular sites for me. I set up my first aquarium in 1965 and have kept every species of freshwater and saltwater fish in the market. I say without hesitation buying discus at Mac's is the best buy I've made in all the years I've been keeping fish. Thanks Steve.
