    Default Tiger Turq before & after (6 months)

    ~6 month update on the smallest one in the group who was barred-up for almost the first two months. Now on a good path

    Are you sure that's the same fish? Just kidding!

    Great job though it looks nice, round and full of color. I have some red tigers coming Wednesday so it's great to see this.

    I know, it's almost unrecognizable! I didn't even get to see his true pattern for a few months until he became more comfortable and dropped his bars. Congrats on your fish, I think you'll be really happy with them, Kenny never disappoints!

    Is it typical for all turquoise or barred discus to "drop their bars" once they reach maturity? Or are the bars simply a sign of stress? Asking because I think the barred look is kind of attractive and I'd like my discus to retain them.

    In this case he was just stressed. As everyone was figuring out their territory he was sort of odd man out for a while. Once he found his place the bars have stayed away.
