Diskus Nhamunda rosé

6. July 2007

Nhamunda Rosé is the trade name of a strain of the brown discus Symphysodon aequifasciatus axelrodi originated in the Rio Nhamunda (northern influent of Amazon, west the city Alenquer). Now again some Nhamunda Rosé are available. Characteristic for this variety is the partially laminar high red part of the brown primary colour. Thus they are not only for fans of true bred location variants but also for breeders of new colour forms from interest. Their maintenance requirements are typical discus like: soft water, high temperatures, good hygienic conditions as well as a balanced nutrition. Best one maintains it in a group of at least 6 animals and avoids a developing of social stress, since this is probably decisive for the occurrence of the most diseases in discus keeping.(Photo F.
