Galaxy Red Turquoise Discus Fish 3 inch

(13 reviews) Write a Review


Galaxy Red Turquoise Discus Fish, this strain is a new twist on an old favorite. It has been selectively bred for its brighter neon blue and red tiger stripes. Like the red turquoise discus fish they are very prolific breeders. Adults will grow up to 8 inches on a diet of frozen bloodworms and krill. This strain is very round and the tiger stripe design flows vertically and horizontally through the body. I like the vivid neon color that this strain displays as an adult. If your fancy is a nice striated discus fish, the Galaxy Red Turquoise is the one that will show off its colors the best and makes a pleasant addition to your discus fish aquarium.

Discus fish are native to the slow and warm tropical waters of the Amazon River. They eat a variety of fresh water shrimp, worms, insects, and aquatic vegetation. In the wild, discus fish colors are limited to a few varieties which are earth tone in color. This helps to protect them from predators by allowing them to blend into their natural habitat. Through selective cross breeding, tank raised discus fish are now available to the hobbyist in a wide range of vivid colors, like the Galaxy Red Turquoise Discus Fish.

    I have received a beautiful, happy, healthy discus from MAC's DISCUS once again. Every discus I have received have greatly exceeded my expectations and are the best that I have received from any DISCUS retailer. He sends exactly what is pictured and are not deceitful in his practice unlike some other discus retailers. I rarely post reviews, but I had to express my thoughts on his Discus. I SINCERELY THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING AGAIN AS YOUR DISCUS AND SERVICE ARE THE BEST.

    Large Discus Order

    Posted by Larry Felder on 25th Apr 2014

    I've bought Discus from Mac for years. We have a 400 gallon Amazon basin tank. The 10 original discus I purchased from him over the years have grown to be the size of small dinner plants. The fish are healthy and a great addition to the family. We just order 16 more 2 1/2" of various types to add to the school. Every time I deal with Mac it is a great experience. He is very knowledgeable on Discus from every aspect. From the proper food needed, to how to make sure they are moved through the process of getting them shipped and into your tank properly. He treats you like one of the family and makes sure everything is going well every step of the process. I highly recommend Mac and have done so on many occasions to other people who love Discus. Mac is the only person I would ever buy Discus from!!! Steve feel free to post the picture of my tank to let people know what a Mac Discus tank looks like.
