Did you figure out what the blue one was? I like the two-tone pattern he's got going.
I am still thinking it is a Blue Cobalt just to young to see some of its pattern yet.

A comparison of this girls growth in just the last 3 weeks she has put on another inch and starting to bulk up a bit. Her and the snow white beside her was roughly the same size in the middle of Sept. the Snow white is growing as well but not at the pace of Red. and they are both eating the same foods.

ALSO SOME PICS OF THE NEWBIES, these 3 are in a Qt tank and will eventually move over and join the other 5. My Wife bought these as a Christmas gift. I just love that woman

I do not have that kind of "pattern" among my fishes.

Hi Noslen, how have you been? That is the "Penang Eruption" Leopard.

No wonder - Hans or the Germans do not have that kind of similar fish or breed; maybe the snakeskin.
I have been doing well.
the baby discus -quarter size - that I got from Hans last year - 7 out 10 survived and have grown to 5" or more at this time.
I have 17-discus on my 90-gallon at this time. I kept the water changes on regular 2-3 day basis; all seems to be fine.

They look great, I will be heading into breeding this year. New years resolution of mine, probably not til mid year, but looking forward to it.
Hopefully this Penang will be a part of it.

Good Luck to your breeding goal; hope you find a PAIR.
I had the experience by accident - it was the greatest until it came to the point of raising the fry; too much work for a working person.
would I go thru it again - nope.

Yeah Nos I am definitely back, just have all the time now for them. disappointed I had to get rid of my last batch as there was 2 Brilliants from Hans in that mix. they were gorgeous. This will be a completely Snakeskin group, looking forward to it. this is the second tank of Discus now and definitely mo0re to come. Slug mentioned when I left that I wouldn't be gone long, I guess he was right. that Snakeskin above is awesome. this guy below is a Scarlet from Angelfish USA I got back in Sept as my first group back in. he has doubled in size in 4 months or so to over 5 inches.
they are all Tony Tan Discus. I also have 3 of Kenny's but really looking forward to this next group and growing them out.

New Pics, another month has gone by. thought I would share some new pics. Big Red is still growing. back in March he was 5.5 inches now at 6.25 inches.
But, am noticing some of the others starting to catch up a bit. the 2 blue diamonds and the San Marah are all right at 6 inches or just under as well.
