Tropical fish magazine article . Discus and angelfish living together?




Many people say you shouldn’t keep Discus with Angels because they’re not found together in the wild, but is this really true?

Angelfish are frequently mates of Discus in nature. Normally they are in a minority within a large Discus group, but I was recently very surprised to get 400 Green discus and nearly 250 angelfish together in one netting.

Pterophyllum scalare are found normally in smaller groups of five to ten within a large Discus group and are, after Geophagus/Satanoperca/Biotodoma species, the most frequent mates of Discus.

P. leopoldi can only be found as mates of Heckel Discus (Rio Negro system), but less than with P. scalare, which also lives in the Rio Negro basin.

P. altum is never found with Discus, as it does not live in their habitats. It is restricted to the upper Orinoco tributaries where no Discus has been found.

In my opinion…and a personal one is the amazon is a huge body of flowing water and fresh aerated water . In a closed system there possibly could be a different set of immunities or parasites that discus don’t hsndle as well.
Although the altums and a lot of altum crosses are beautiful fish.
There’s more and more breeding now with wild angel
