    Default New discus strain

    This is an Albino Super Crystal are from Myrtle Beach Discus. I am the second person in the USA to have one of them. It's a new variety. Has anyone seen a discus similar to this? He's about 3.5" now. I'm excited to see how he turns out.

    It's hard to tell from your pics. Are the pupils red?

    Hi Steve. It's called an albino but the pupils look black to me.

    I can't tell. I think I need to shine a light at him but I don't want to stress him out.

    I don't know what the discus gender is. I don't like to call an animal an "it" like they're an object so I called them him or her. Sometimes I have to correct myself from calling the same discus a him and her in the same sentence. I try to stick with one gender so it doesn't confuse anyone. I usually end up naming my discus female and male names even though I don't know what gender they are.

    Also I call more animals him because I'm surrounded by males. Our 2 dogs, 1 cat and bunny are all boys. It's just me, my husband and son (no daughters) in our household and I make sure most of the koi I purchase are male because they don't have a propensity for becoming egg bound.
