    The fish in photo’s 2 and 5 could be Marlboro Reds or Red Melon, probably Marlboro Reds

    The fish in Photo’s 3 and 4 could be Blue Diamonds or Platinum Golds, probably Blue Diamond

    I am in no way a discus expert so I am not 100%

    Lovely fish by the way

    Thanks Mad Duff,
    I thought they were Red Marlboro’s too.
    And now i feel(strongly)that the others are Blue Diamonds.
    I think they are lovely too and hope to breed them soon.
    Thanks again,
    Shiv

    6 Rainbow tetra’s
    4 Serpae Tetra’s
    2 Zebra Danio’s
    4 Blue Rams
    1 Albino Pleco
    1 Common Pleco

    I got the discus when they must’ve been a month or so old.
    In India the shopkeepers aren’t really aware of what they sell so i was i little confused if the red guys were Sunset Reds or……
    They have now grown to 3inches and are thriving.
    What does your tank hold Matt?

    At the moment I have two containers, one with Aphanius mento and the other Cualac tesselatus Shiv…both species of killifish that don’t have common names. /smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” /> The members here have a pretty varied selection of stuff. Have a look in the photo album bit and you’ll be able to see some of our fish. How are you finding the serpaes with the discus? I always found they would nip the fins of cichlids. Oh and where in India do you live? Your country has some wonderful native species.

    I haven’t had a problem(as yet)with my Serpaes nipping fins….
    I live in a city called Mumbai which doesn’t have much variety of fish,besides Pearl Arowanas,a few kinds of Discus,some variety of Tetra’s,Piranha’s,Flowerhorns and Pleco’s.
    I am slightly inclined to the Discus and Arowana’s.
