    Question Please help me ID my 5 new Discus

    Hi all,
    I picked up my 5 new discus last night from my good friend who is retiring from the hobby due to illness. It hasn't been quite 24 hours yet but I was able to get some low light photos just now and would like help to ID the strains of my new discus please. If you can see the littlest Discus in the phots please ID him too if you can, I have had him for 1 month

    (1) Is this an Orange Pidgeon Blood?

    (2) Is this a Red Turquoise?

    (3) Apparently this is a Red Rose?

    I would agree with you names for the first three. There are many varieties of orange pigeon blood like you have, mostly defined by the pattern. Fireball sounds like something a seller made up, so hard to tell, but it's probably a pigeon blood based white with red or orange. You might check out the pics from folks in the sponsors section, like Kenny, or Chicago Discus, or Uncle Sam's, just to name a few, for comparison. I've got several Rose Reds like yours and your turq looks to have nice shape.

    Hello again Rogue,

    Thank you for clearing that up a bit, I wasn't quiet sure of their strains as I have had over 12 months off Discus keeping and have only started up again 1-2 months ago, its funny how quickly you can forget some of the details and info around keeping these fish.
    I will go have a look at the sponsors section thanks
    And yes, that turq is lovely, it is the biggest discus in the tank, not sure of sizes yet because I don't want to frighten them too soon.
    Cheers

    The last picture is probably Red Whites, Willie
    Whenever you feel stupid, remember that there are people out there looking for Pokemon.

    Thanks Willie, I hadn't heard of Red Whites before but someone else on another site also said that's what they are
