If you're a Discus fan, you're bound to enjoy these great books from two leading experts on the subject.

Discus Book 01 by Heiko Bleher
This must be the world’s best book on wild Discus and Heiko Bleher has literally spent a lifetime putting it together. The publication is a milestone for nature lovers, explorers, Amazon lovers and those who want to know about the newest Discus and other Amazonian discoveries.

Inside you can also find unique and truly new loricariid catfishes (20 pages), from Brazil, Colombia and Venezuela; discovery of new Discus variants, new angelfishes and an overview of the nine angelfishes recognised by Heiko throughout South America, discoveries in previously unexplored Amazon regions; rediscoveries, conversations with breeders never before interviewed, authentic biotope aquariums for Discus down to the last detail, journeys to Amazon regions unknown to white man — and so much more.
