Discus

Discus originate in the mixed tropical waters of the Brazilian Amazon River of South America. The Amazon and its tributaries contain water described as either white, clear or black. It is in the areas where these waters "mix" that Discus are found. Today, the Discus is a favorite among experienced freshwater aquarists and does very well in planted aquariums.
