The Yellow Marlboro Discus has been selectively bred for its brilliant Yellow coloration. The face of this Discus is cream and the main part of the body is bright Yellow. The Anal and dorsal fins have electric blue stripes that add to the appeal of this fish. The overall coloration of Discus will vary depending on mood and overall health of the fish.
The Discus has surpassed the Angelfish as the most popular freshwater aquarium fish. Depending on sub-species, the natural range of the Discus extends from the Amazon to the Rio Negro Regions of South America.
The Yellow Marlboro Discus requires an moderate level of care due to its feeding habits and water filtration requirements. Territorial during spawning, this otherwise peaceful fish is among the schooling group, forming a well-defined nuclear family. Becoming slightly territorial when breeding, it is best to breed an established pair, or maintain a group of young Discus and allow them to pair themselves. Warm, soft, slightly acidic water is required for spawning.
The pair will clean a flat surface (usually a broad leaf or the side of the aquarium) prior to spawning. The parents must not be removed from the fry; the fry feed on their parents’ mucus. Largely carnivorous, the Yellow Marlboro Discus prefer freeze-dried bloodworms and pellet food designed for Discus, high-quality flake food, and meaty frozen foods.
