Gold Crystal Discus Fish 2.75 inch

(3 reviews) Write a Review


This golden beauty is unusual among discus due to its lack of patterns, but its vibrant, rich gold color makes it a standout among tropical fish. Discus that occur in the wild have a series of vertical markings, called stress bars, on its body. In addition, many discus have striations and spots on them as well. Breeders of discus have created an amazing variety of discus incorporating these spots, bars, and striations in assorted patterns, but breeders have also had amazing results breeding out the markings to produce crystal discus. All of the markings have been completely bred out of the gold crystal discus, and the resulting fish is a solid golden color free of spotting or striations. The eyes of the gold crystal discus are an intense yellow, and the pectoral, dorsal, and tail fins are opaque. 

Discus fish are popular because of their size, their appealing round shape, and their vibrant colors. The gold crystal discus has a very round and flat body. It has full pectoral and dorsal fins that extend almost the full length of its body, increasing its round appearance. A mature gold crystal discus will reach a size of 8” long, and its body is almost as tall as it is wide. Discus are appealing because of their calm, peaceful nature, and the vibrant color of this golden stunner will enhance any tropical aquarium. The gold crystal discus will stand out among all of the other vibrantly colored fish in a tank like a burst of sunshine.

    Color is developing beautifully!

    When this fish first arrived, it looked more brown than gold. Mac assured me that the color would develop more as it got older. Well, let me tell you, he was right again!!! The beautiful golden color seems to get brighter every day. I am SO satisfied with Macs Discus that I will probably buy only from him in the future..

    Gold Crystal Sparkles

    Posted by Unknown on 19th Apr 2014

    This is my fourth Discus from Mac's Discus and as always this exceeded my expectations. The gold color on the discus is bold (not faint) and adds color depth to any aquarium. I love that the yellow eyes accentuate the body. The only reason that I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because the color is only on about 70% of the body so I can't determine the final look of the Discus. This discus is unique and beatiful.
