    No. This is called a Red White.

    I think the colour of the eyes has nothing to do with the "red Mellon" name . Im not sure about the difference in red whites vs res mellons , but the discus from this picture looks like a red Mellon to me .

    Yours like discusbi have seen labelled red whites. My red melons have more of a cream/yellow base and a blood red eye. Here's a pic

    It's the white eye and the coloration.
