Hi-Fin Cobalt Discus Fish 3 inch

$46.95

Hi Fin Cobalt Discus Fish, this was my Mac’s trademark discus fish. I bred thousands of this strain and sold to wholesale and retail pet stores throughout the United States, Mexico, and Canada in the late 80’s. This beautiful sky blue discus fish shows off a sail fin dorsal which is spectacular. The back streamer is typical for the male while the females back dorsal is rounded. It is very easy to tell males from female with this strain. I have witnessed on many pairs that once the female starts a spawning cycle she will not go into a rest period for 18 month. Today the Hi Fin Cobalt Discus Fish is still sought after for its sail fin dorsal and vibrant sky blue body. While the female hold on to their horizontal stripe the male fill in to a 90% solid colored body. The H.F. Cobalt discus is a hearty strain and males can grow up to 9 inches, showing off a thick cichlid forehead and round body. This discus fish is a great addition to your collection.

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 Hi Fin Cobalt Discus Fish.

Very nice Discus,nice red eyes, and healthy appetite. Started trying to establish pecking order before I could even get them out of the bucket. They love frozen bloodworms. Two of the six so far will also eat flake but not all of them yet. Nice fish!

Fantastic trademark fish

a returning customer. Bought 3 males and 3 females, and Steve made it happen with these 2" gems. Eating bloodworms within a day and after just 2 weeks, eating everything!
