Here's some of our checkerboard pigeon blood discus. They are just developing their pattern on their body. You can see the reddish-orange color starting to develop as well. The checkerboard discus are eating live daphnia that we grow in our greenhouse vats. The discus fish love chasing and feeding on the daphnia. Daphnia is an excellent food to feed to your young discus because of it's high protein content. Click the link below to read how we raise our daphnia at the hatchery.
