Marlboro Yellow Discus is the selectively bred variant of the Marlboro Red Discus. The process is meant to create a new strain with the yellow coloration not only distributed in the face areas but the whole body as well. Thanks to it, Marlboro Yellow Discus have appeared and soon become one of the favorite species of the Discus-keeping community.

As a variant of Discus fish and a member of family Cichlidae, Marlboro Yellow Discus are famous for the distinctive disc-shaped appearance, and regarded as quite difficult to care for, yet once successfully, the fish become the pride and joy of those aquarists who possess them. The reason behind the advanced care level mainly lies in Discus’s size and high demands for living conditions. Although they are mostly captive-bred species, Marlboro Yellow Discus still incline to tropical environments. They prefer dwelling in calm water flows with abundant live plants around. Warm and clean water are still the key factors for the survival of Yellow Marlboro Discus. More importantly, their big size with a distinctive disc-shaped appearance, despite highlighting the aquarium, increases the difficulty of care level by impelling the aquarists to pay more attention when setup and maintenance of the fish tank.

Nevertheless, if you grasp some key points, keeping the Marlboro Yellow Discus is not as hard as you’ve imagined.

  1. Big size, big tank: If your fish are large, then your tank should be large, too. The average size of Discus fish is about 6 inches (above 15 cm). And, they often live in groups of six specimens. Hence, you may need a 75-gallon tank in the least for this case. Also, be aware of the pecking order issue as it is often established among Discus fish.
  2. Water conditions: Appropriate water temperature and clean water are two main issues when it comes to living conditions of Discus. Make sure your tank imitates the tropical areas characteristics (you could refer to our suggestion below), and the water change process is well performed regularly (30% per week). Given its large size, Discus eats a lot and disposes of the comparative waste. Thus, performing water changes diligently helps filter their waste out and return the clean conditions for them to thrive in captivity.
  3. Semi-aggression disposition: Try to reduce their aggression level by providing sufficient ample spaces and live aquarium plants to hide them from each other. Discus will be happier and surely appreciate such additions.

  • Social behavior: Semi-aggressive towards the same species (especially during breeding seasons), yet relatively peaceful to the tank community.
