    Default Yellow discus and beef heart

    Wondering if removing salmon and shrimp from recipe of beef heart would be enough to retain the yellow in discus without them going orange? I feed 95% BH mix and snacks of frozen blood worms and algae wafers. Would blood worms also be a problem with regards to color? Thanks As I side note, I really knew nothing about the importance of keeping yellow discus yellow until recently.

    Blood worms should not impact colour. If you are having trouble having them retain colour you might consider a colour enhancer such as carophyl yellow. They actually use it on chickens to make the egg yolks really yellow.
