Wild Red Heckel Discus from Brazil have an overall red color with bright blue horizontal stripes. Like all wild Discus, these fish prefer higher temperatures from (82F-90F) and acidic water (pH 5.5-6.5) with lots of tannins. When adding new Discus to an established Discus tank, it is better to add more than one at a time to prevent territorial behavior. Discus are peaceful, and also very sensitive. They do well with other peaceful fish that like similar conditions, such as Rams, Cardinal Tetras, Rummynose Tetras, etc.
