also what would be the most expensive discus ? today I saw a large blue spotted red discus for $350 which was much more than any of the SW fish at the store

The price on fish ranges greatly.There is a thread on most expensive fish.
Try the search and find it.Some members have paid thousands!

Most expensive discus I have seen was $10K from a breeder out of Malaysia. Most expensive I have paid for was just over $500. Price is highly subjective to quality and uniqueness of the fish itself...especially if it is a new color type.

It was a few years back when the first albino blue diamonds started popping up around Hong Kong and China. $10K for a 3.5" fish. :ssuprised:

Turquoise and Pigeon Blood variations are still very popular.

The easiest color strains to come by are the brown discus, and usually the neon blue. Other strains may be far more popular but aren't nearly as easy to find. (at least thats how it is in new england from what I've seen)

Blood Pigeons and Turqs are both extremely popular.

Most expensive Discus I've heard of and seen pics of was the Grand Champion form an international show a few years back. It was a Leopard Snakeskin and it sold for $25,000

They are a truely unique fish for sure! As expensive as they may be, when they are kept well the result is extremely rewarding.. when my 55 is vacant I will either go reef or do another discus tank.

What do you have readily available in your area for discus?
