You might want to reconsider that black background. A lot of Discus will pepper and they don’t look as nice. I made the same mistake.

Picture black pepper on a beautiful Discus.... basically dark colors and black spots on the fish.

here you go. Look at the difference from the blue to the black. Look at the orange one.

Hey guys, I have 11 discus right now, I'm getting rid of 4 which are pigeon blood, the rest that I'm keeping is albino, so I don't have to worry about peppering.
