Diskus Royal Blue/Rio Moju

6. July 2007

If an increase of beauty and charisma of the at 01.02.06 introduced Diskus variant Red Inferno/Rio Moju is still possible, then by the Royal Blues originating from the same river. When first seeing these fishes I remembered the headline of an old “aquarien magazin” article. In January 1972 Eduard Schmidt Focke a famous german discus breeder wrote “Forget the price”. It dealt with the first imported Wattleys Tuerkis Diskus a selection from Royal Blue, which at that time were sold for 500 $. Sometimes, if something extraordinary meets, one should lay aside the ratio and actually forget the price, particularly since today discus cost in relation to the purchasing power only a fraction of the 34 years ago required prices. And with something completely extraordinary it acts with this dicus, perfect bluish green wave lines on an orange brown basic colour, strongly coloured ventral fins and bright eyes. For me they are simply the perfect discus.
