Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Discus are a genus of three species of cichlid freshwater fishes native to the Amazon River basin.Discus are popular as aquarium fish and their aquaculture in several countries in Asia is a major industry.Discus belong to the genus Symphysodon, which currently includes three species: The common discus, the Heckel discus, and a new species which has been named Symphysodon tarzoo.However, a further investigation published in August 2007 suggested that the genus held the three species: S. aequifasciatus, S. haraldi and S. discus (the Heckel discus). Both studies suggest three species; the only disagreement is in the scientific names for each.show more
