If you want a tropical and colorful fish for your aquarium tank, you can choose discus. Their colors are red, blue, green, yellow and other color. You can find them from many countries of world. Discus is a genus of cichlids native to the Amazon River basin. Discus are popular as aquarium fish and their aquaculture in several countries in Asia is a major industry. They are sometimes referred to as pompadour fish. Discus are fish from the genus Symphysodon, which currently includes the above species. However, another review of the genus published in August 2007 suggested that the genus held these three species- S. aequifasciatus (the green discus), S. haraldi (the blue-brown-common discus), and S. discus. Another characteristic of Symphysodon species is their care for the larvae. As for most cichlids, brood care is highly developed with both the parents caring for the young. Additionally, adult discus produce a secretion through their skin, which the larvae live off during their first few days. However when bred in captivity the larvae will tend to live off their parents secretion for up to 2 weeks.
