White Diamond Discus Fish 2.5 inch

(10 reviews) Write a Review


As the name implies, this discus is bright white in color. There are no patterns and it is a solid color all over the body. The dorsal fin and the pectoral fin of this discus are white to opaque and from far away resemble spikes. The tail region is opaque and it seems as if this discus has no tail when observed from a distance. On closer examination, the facial region is a dark cream color which stands out against the white eye of this discus. This is a beautiful addition to your aquarium because of its color and the spiky resemblance of the fins makes it a rare looking discus unlike some other fish that are available.

Discus originate from the basin of the Amazon River and are a larger type of tropical fish that have become a popular choice for aquariums. This is because of their distinct disc like shape and the dorsal and pectoral fins that run across the top and bottom towards the tail region. On average the white diamond can mature to about 8” long. They usually have the same height and length which contributes to the overall round, flat shape. The color of this white diamond discus contrasts against the green vegetation of an aquarium and will be a beautiful addition to yours. Although they are large, the discus is very peaceful and possesses a calm nature. It is non-aggressive and highly social and prefers the company of other fish with a similar temperament and that are also slow feeders.

    Very Satisfied

    Posted by D. Arthur on 21st May 2017

    Given the colors of our other discus we didn't expect this one to really stand out but rather bring a new look to the group. The aquarium has a black background and can be seen from two rooms. It's bright white color stands out well around the others and it's normally the first discus your eye goes to. This was our first purchase from Macs and it was a very good experience. The communication was great and he was very helpful with questions we had. When I decide to purchase more they will come from Macs

    A splash of white among a rainbow of colors

    Posted by Robert on 7th Apr 2017

    I bought 2 white diamond discus. They showcase the others and the colors pop. As many others mentioned the shipping and customer care makes buying on the internet a pleasure. When you deal with Steve you know everything important from the purchase until they arrive at your home.

The white diamond arrived healthy and adapted to my tank within hours. Great fish, great customer service, and great prices equals a great business in my opinion. I highly recommend Mac's Discus to friends and strangers!

    Only from Mac's Discus

    Posted by Shaun Johnson on 14th May 2015

    These are my favorite discus. Sometimes I see them in the LFS but I only get this from Mac's Discus because I know they will be very healthy and none of them will be stunted, which is a big deal to me. They are young but they look exactly like the picture just slightly smaller.. Do yourself a favor and follow Steve's instructions on acclimation exactly. I followed Steve's acclimation instructions exactly, and even sooner than expected, they are roaming about the tank and are very curious. They sort of follow me in their tank as I walk around the room. It's pretty cool because I'm used to most Discus being very shy for a long period of time. In any event, I waited until night time to feed them, in which the gobbled up everything I put in the tank. Here we are 3 days later and they are doing really, really well. I am very happy with this purchase!

    You Just Won't Find Any Better

    Posted by Shaun Johnson on 25th Nov 2014

    These are hands-down the best discus I have ever had. Stunningly beautiful and you can tell the quality in the breeding. Steve really knows his stuff! I followed his acclimation instructions exactly and they are doing extremely well. They weren't even hiding the first hour and have already started pecking at the substrate as if they are looking for food. Thank you again, for the excellent selection..!
