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.

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.
