Feeding Discus

The type of feeding for the discus is very important because; a) to get them full-grown and b) to keep healthy and strong fish.

The diversity of frozen food is adequate to provide our discus fish with a very various dinner. Because of the negative developments in Dutch ditches and lakes, you should not feed live tubifex or mosquito larva. This is a very annoying development because the discus likes these food types very much.

Next to frozen food, people use more often recipes with a basis of cow- or turkey heart. I use both kinds. You add, among others, pieces of cod, spinach, carrots, paprika and vitamin preparations. The butcher minces the heart to a very thin grain. Then all the other products are added and blended together. I store the finished product in rubber forms used for ice-cubes (you can get it in most department stores) and freeze it.

Discus Land suggests feeding Discus the following way:

Special cow- turkey heart mixture, artemia, krill (Pacifica) red mosquito larva, mysis and for my smaller fish; black mosquito larva, daphnia and cyclops.
