Red Ruby Discus Fish 2.75 inch

(18 reviews) Write a Review


The red ruby discus is a stunningly beautiful fish for your tropical aquarium. As is typical for cultivated discus, the red ruby discus is the result of careful crossbreeding among several varieties of cultivated discus to produce a fish with splendidly vibrant colors. As fry, the red ruby discus are shimmery gold with a hint of red. As they mature, their color deepens. The head and body of the red ruby discus are white to golden colored. Overlaying the base color is a beautiful reddish orange color that covers the majority of the body of the red ruby discus. The tail fin of the red ruby discus is the same color as its base color. The body of the red ruby discus has no stress bars, striations, or spots. The dorsal and pectoral fins of the red ruby discus have light colored striations that form lines, but the entire fin is typically not marked.

Discus fish are coveted by tropical fish collectors because they are large and beautiful. They also have a pleasantly round shape. When it reaches its full size, the red ruby discus will be 8” in length. Its round shape comes from it being almost as tall as it is long. In addition, it has very full, rounded dorsal and pectoral fins, which increases its appearance of roundness. This lovely, flame colored stunner will make a great focal point for your tropical aquarium. The amazing red-orange color will burst among the vegetation and other fish in your freshwater aquarium.

    The Red Ruby arrives and looks like its picture by the next day if not within hours. Steve's Discus are top notch, in great health and are packed very well and shipped with great care. Steve cares very much about the welfare of the fish he sends out. When you receive these little guys you will know why, they are beautiful. I will be buying more discus from Macs very very soon.
