Top-notch experience from beginning to end from this fantastic company. I’m in Phoenix Arizona and had them sent here through Southwest airlines, who ended up delivering them late, but Miranda was on the phone with me at midnight to make sure they were all right. And they are incredible! (Review by Don M. on Chicago Discus Facebook page 12/30/21)

Gotta say I absolutely Love all my Discus from They always arrive Healthy, fast and packed so well. Just an Awesome place to order from!  (Comment by Deborah H. on Discus Review Facebook page, 12/26/21)

I knew from my first order before ever receiving it that Chicago Discus was going to be special. On the evening they were shipping my first order I get all call from them on the road outside of the airport. Because of a disturbance at the airport that evening, all roads into cargo were closed. This was the first time they had experienced such a thing and were concerned my first experience with them would be bad. The order was for only one fish but it was special because it was a gift for my wife. No harm, these things happen and they took the fish back to the shop putting him in his own tank until they could try again the next day. What they didn’t know is I own a mail order business and know what they were going through. Expensive shipping supplies wasted, another trip to the airport, time canceling and recreating shipping document. They never missed a beat, keeping me informed all the way and never once complained and only concerned about keeping us happy. Placed my third order now and am so thrilled with them. This is that first purchase, a red panda.  (from Mike K. on Chicago Discus Facebook page, 12/17/21)

Great source for high quality discus (Review by Patrick published on Facebook 10/18/21.  Patrick bought all 6 of our Albino Red Leopards and sent this wonderful photo of them in his tank.)

Would like to do a shout-out for Chicago Discus. Miranda is the most humble honest and caring person that I have ever dealt with..!!. I have made multiple purchases from her and have been extremely pleased with them all. She will Not sell you anything that is not up to her standards. I have had only 1 fish that has died from her and really do not know if it was my fault or hers but she gave me credit for it..that is just Miranda..she did not have to do that. All my shipments have been pack perfectly and arrived in good health. The fish will also eat within the hour. shorten this..if you are looking for quality, healthy and reasonably priced discus check out Chicago Discus..!!  (from Roxanne, 7/29/21, posted on Discus Review Facebook page)
We’ve been searching for a business that we could visit while getting Discus. Chicago Discus was that and so much more. Imagine a mini Garden of Eden. Thats what it feels like as you walk thru the property. The Discus room was equally impressive. They pack each Discus with great care. I will be returning many times. If you like Parrots, Ducks, Chickens and of course Discus. While also residing anywhere remotely near Chicago, I recommend you visit them. Even if you don’t live near, they have top quality Discus you won’t be disappointed. (from Jeff, 7/1/21, review posted on Chicago Discus Facebook page)
I am a passionate discus hobbyist and my son happened to move to Chicago within a few miles of Miranda and Josie (we are from Rochester, NY). I made an appointment to visit and had no idea what was in store for me- literally.  The tanks were pristine and full of gorgeous discus. Healthy and vibrant. There was even an hours old batch of fry to prove a pair she realized right as we were viewing the tanks.  Miranda was so generous with her knowledge, experience and time. She actually showed me step-by-step her process for making her beef heart recipe and even how to find her recipe on her website.  She’s passionate about her fish and so many other creatures she keeps on site- parrots, chickens, ducks, turtles, koi, bees and a myriad of gorgeous healthy plants that I heard are Josie’s talents. This tiny plot of land is heaven on earth to anyone who loves plants and animals. Their passion is visible in the care of every living thing there.  As I looked at the tanks full of the most beautifully shaped, brightly colored discus I’d scoped out the ones I wished I could take home. My tanks are full at the moment but she’s won my heart and confidence. Thank you so much Miranda for letting me experience a few minute of your beautiful life. I can’t wait to visit you again.  (Review posted by Jenene on Chicago Discus Facebook page, 6/30/21).

I have been a discus hobbyist for over 10 years and I have purchased many discus from local fish shops and none have come close to what Miranda has. These discus are healthy and great size. Just beautiful. Only regret I have, not finding Chicago Discus sooner. (from Josh, Google review, 4/3/21)

Once again my order came in great health. All most immediately grouping with the other discus. I don’t even shop around anymore. You folks are my go to discus shop. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK! The Red Panda is exceptional. (from Mike, 4/14/21)

Just had to share my fantastic experience with ChicagoDiscus. Meeting Miranda was awesome as she was nice, very knowledgeable, and patient with my fish selections/questions. The place is awesome to see and the fish are superb. I was looking for larger reds and boy did I get some beauts. …  I tried ChicagoDiscus……boy I’m glad I did. The pic below was a short while after my two hour trek home releasing them into into their tank. I’m picky about the fish I buy and Miranda and her fish were SO worth the drive/traffic.

Good morning Miranda! I received 4 discus from you yesterday and I wanted to thank you they are absolutely beautiful. I maybe be making another purchase in the near future. Thank you again. Hope you have a great day.  (from Heather, 4/7/21)

Just wanted to say thank you for my order. The Discus look AMAZING! I will order all of my future Discus from you. (from Brandon, 4/4/21)

Everyone arrived safe and sound!  They seem happy checking out their new home and are so colorful!  Thank you so much for all your help and picking out such beautiful fish!  Now I just need to figure out names…  (from Erin, 3/31/21)

Received the fish right on time! They are doing wonderful and all I can say is WOW, they are absolutely beautiful!! Thank you again for the wonderful customer service!  May you and your business have many blessings! (from Elizabeth, 3/9/21)

Integrity is what this seller is all about. The discus we ordered was not delivered until day 3 after shipment, due to FedEx delay.  Seller kept us informed during entire process, and took the time to listen to our distress. When our fish was finally delivered, two days overdue, it was, amazingly, still alive! Today our miracle discus is swimming among tank mates and is a gorgeous addition to our aquarium. THANK YOU so much Chicago Discus, you are the ultimate Discus store!! (from Shirley, 2/28/21)

Beautiful fish, A+ packaging and great communication. Do not hesitate to do business with Chicago Discus 👍🏻 If you’re in the Midwest looking to get into the hobby I highly recommend! (from Zach, posted on Simply Discus Facebook 2/2/21)

I’ve always bought my Discus from Chicago Discus . Chicago Discus is my number one stop to go to when it comes to needing high quality discus. Check out the website and look at the food being delivered to your King Of The Tank. Miranda and Josie is very knowledgeable and always willing to assist you with whatever you need when it comes to your discus just look at my tank picture.  (from Ray, Google review 1/22/21)
