Ica Red Discus
Ica Red Discus Fish
The ica red discus fish is named after the area of the Amazon River, the Ica River, where wild discus of this type are collected. The ica red has many natural variants in the wild. A notable feature of the ica red discus is the pronounced middle bar of the body. This is often referred to as the stress bar. Wild caught Heckle discus fish show a pronounced middle stress bar. It looks like a wide black stripe
running vertically down the middle of the back. The ica red was used to make the san merah red discus. The pronounced black stress bar was bred out. Females tend to show the best red color. Also, at breeding time the ica red is showing bright red coloration. At other times the ica red may appear to be a brown type discus. When the ica red is showing it's red coloration, the head usually remains a lighter brown color. The photo shown was taken when the pair was actually spawning. Note the lighter head coloration. This is one reason many red discus types have a a head color that is different from the body color. That indicates the ica red was used along the way in developing that particular discus fish.
Each red ica discus fish we ship is carefully prepared prior to shipment. We fast the red ica discus for a day and perform a large water change to clean them out so the shipping water remains clean. The discus fish are double bagged in 4 mil. thick bags with a liner between the bags. The bags are filled with shipping water and oxygen and placed in a styro box. The insulated styro boxes are placed into cardboard boxes. State of the art heat packs are used to maintain a constant temperature for the discus. There is an art to properly shipping discus and our years of experience ensure your discus will arrive in fine condition. In Colorado we developed a winter shipping technique that is second to none.
For shipping discus fish we use FedEx. The fish leave late in the evening and arrive the following morning. Shipping discus fish by FedEx is faster and less expensive than shipping them by expedited air freight such as Delta Dash. We guarantee live healthy arrival of your discus.
