The website is now more than four years years old. At this time, There was a large amount of forum dedicated to the discus, but few of blog.

The idea then came to me to share my passion with those who wished to.

The first version of the blog quickly became limited, and thanks to my friend David Lassalle it is in December 2011 that site has taken off. Indeed, his help was invaluable (It is still regularly! 😉 ) in order to run a more modern version of Fanatik-Discus.

Without his help, I would not be there! Thanks again David!!!

From the beginning, my friends fans of’discus aquariums did not hesitate to participate in this project; and I thank them again! I also think to Raymond, Victor, Lilian, Cüneyt, Jeffrey who regularly contribute to the quality of published informations and pictures.

Informations dedicated to the discus

My goals will be the same. Bring the informations quality and relevant, Stay for a long time and share.

Regularly, I get to ask aboutinformations from passionates. I think it will have to fill out some categories of the blog with moreinformations dedicated to the care, the identification of varieties, the prevention of problems, the reproduction etc…

Because a large number of visits go to articles dedicated to the maintenance of the discus.

I think to Bassem who in, Egypt has reproduced and raised its first discus. We exchanged a lot through social networks and I am happy to know that, to this day my help have allowed him to realize one of his dreams!

What challenge for him to live his passion, in a country that has known disorders we know… Congratulations again to you Bassem!

This kind of adventures give me the desire to continue again and again…

And here are his results… I found the name of his small farm: Pyramids discus farm !!! (You will understand why a little bit later)

  6. Hello,

    I would like to change the decoration for my discus. I would like to offer them a very well planted tank with a lawn. Could you tell me if I can order from you? Thanks in advance and have you got pictures?

    Regards M.Blondel
    (What do you recommend and how to achieve this, thanks again)

    Good evening,

    I replied you via the facebook page of the blog. You are on a site dedicated to the hobby on the discus.
    No sale of products here… 😉

    To make a sward with discus, won't be very easy…
    I advise you to consult the website tropica.com where you will find a lot of informations on plants.
    Generally, This kind of plants need strong light, a good rate of CO2 etc.…. Things not necessarily compatible with discus.

    Keep me informed of your research!


  8. Hello, Yann

    Your blog is nice, I'm also a fan of discus, but I stopped following my move to Egypt. I'd like to go back to my activity, and I saw that you knew someone in Egypt (Bassem) that breed the discus. Could you make contact with him for me.

    Kind regards

    Good evening Hamza,

    I just contact Bassem, as soon as I have an answer from him I will tell you.
    How did you discover the blog in Egypt?

    Yann 😉
