The Panthera Discus exhibits a combination of colors and patterns reminiscent of the majestic big cats it is named after. Its base coloration can vary, typically ranging from shades of beige to golden or amber hues. The body is adorned with bold and distinctive black or dark brown markings that create a striking pattern. These markings can take various forms, such as horizontal stripes, spots, or even rosettes, resembling the patterns found on the coats of panthers or other large feline species. Like other discus fish, the Panthera Discus is relatively large. When fully mature, it can reach a diameter of around 6 to 8 inches (15 to 20 centimeters). However, growth rates and maximum sizes can vary depending on factors such as water quality, diet, and overall care. Panthera Discus are generally peaceful and social fish. They can be kept in community aquariums with other non-aggressive fish species that share similar water parameter requirements. Providing ample hiding places, plants, and open swimming space is important to ensure their well-being. They may form small groups or pairs and display breeding behaviors under suitable conditions. Maintaining specific water parameters is crucial for the well-being of Panthera Discus. They typically prefer soft, slightly acidic to neutral water conditions. The recommended temperature range is typically between 82 to 86°F (28 to 30°C). Consistent water quality, regular water changes, and appropriate filtration are essential for their overall health and vitality. Panthera Discus are omnivorous and require a balanced diet. They can be fed high-quality flakes, pellets, and granules specifically formulated for discus fish. Supplementing their diet with frozen or live foods such as bloodworms, brine shrimp, and daphnia is recommended to provide essential protein and nutrients. Offering a varied diet enhances their coloration and promotes their overall health.
