About the author Chris Ingham has been keeping many types of tropical fish for over 40 years. This path has led him to keeping the ‘king of the aquarium’ the discus. Discovering discus changed life for Chris greatly, taking him around the world to places such as Singapore, Malaysia and many others to be at the world discus championships, Aquarama and visiting many discus fish breeding farms in the Far East. Discus soon took over his main job, where Chris set up Plymouth discus breeding his own discus, and then shipping them around the UK and even to Italy, France and Spain. He has also been the main guest speaker at fish clubs around Devon and Cornwall in the UK, giving talks and lectures on discus. At the end of 2003 he was asked to write for Tropical fish magazine, which went well, and he was soon asked to be the discus expert writing every month. He then went on to be on the expert team on the questions and answers page of the same magazine, which earned him the name of ‘the discus doctor’. Since then he has also written apart from his regular spot every month in Tropical fish magazine for Practical fish magazine, and tropical world magazine on his favourite fish, discus.
