    It's most interesting and striking, Tom. They suggest Dark Angel in a way to me.

    In the reds females tend to be redder and because of dorsal fin I would guess female for this one.

    Thanks peewee but I’m talking about the orange one in the 2 pics before . Just wondering if any in the 125 are male. It’s been a very calm tank with no attempts at breeding.

    Are you asking because you want to breed it? Do you have an empty breeder? Maybe a 20 gallon? Try putting the orange into the tank along with two others that have streamers on the dorsal. See what happens. I guess the orange to be a female. I was talking to Kenny last week and because I have all males, except for one, I asked him to send to me females. As good as he is and as long as he has been involved with discus he said that he can only guess unless he sees a breeding tube but he was going to try. That based on his best guess.

    Nope no intentions on breeding. Just wondering why it hasn’t happened? Is it because the planted tank? Or are all 13 female? What are the odds.

    Thirteen will find you a pair. I think that a fish would be more at home in a planted tank rather then a bare one. I have 5 suspected male and 1 female based on my best guess. How old are the fish? They may not yet be developed yet. Water change, temperature change, ph change, food change all could trigger. If you know a storm is coming try a water change prior to the storm. I have said before that back in the day when there mostly only wild and first or second generation wild to be had it was pretty easy to breed discus. Now it seems dang hard to do. In breeding, cross breeding, out breeding, hormones, factory food and factory fish seem to have taken something out of these fish at the cost of decoration, size, and color. I think it was either willie or Al said that growth hormones can lead to sterilization. If indeed true then any sterile fish won't have reproductive interests.

    I'll guess the orange is a female .
    Looking at the group photo I don't see any nuchal humps ?
    I am not skilled sexing discus but would think if there was a pair they would have spawned by now ?
    That or it is possible with all the mixed colors none of the opposite sex want to mate up with a dis similar color ??
    I don't believe that is a hard rule but do think some discus can be picky like that and have heard before given the choice they like to pair with their own ?

    If they can picky eaters they can just as well be picky partner pickers too.

    Not looking to breed was just wondering. The discus have been with me for a year to just over a year. All but 2 were bought at the 2-2 1/2 size.
