San Merah Discus Picture
One of my favorites, the San Merah discus...

Quick story, the San Merah was developed in the 90's by Mr. See Cheow San, crossing wild red brown ( ica ) that produced a rather reddish male...

Breeding through several generations to remove the bars and blue striations, the San Merah was born...

Dedication to the Discus hobby has produced some amazing variations...

The San Merah are awesome!

How fish get from the reefs to your aquarium...
Interesting article by National Geographic on how fish get to the LFS and ultimately how unregulated the industry is...

Wasn't expecting this...

"No centralized database tracks how many fish are taken from reefs, for instance, and little information exists about how the capture of fish—sometimes by the destructive use of cyanide and dynamite—affects their numbers in the wild."

Pictures of visit to Uncle Sam's Discus in Canoga Park, Ca
This pair of bright orange pigeon blood discus was amazing to see... I didn't see any wrigglers on their cone, but their color and size were impressive, wouldn't mind having this pair of discus in my fish room!
