    I started a thread about San Merah's recently but there are a lot of comments about them online. I order from DiscussMadness and have good communication with Mathias. DiscussMadness has San Merah's, Rose Reds, and, Blue-Faced San Merah's on their site. I am unclear if San Merah's are unbarred as they grow out. I have three of Discuss Madness's grow-out size San Merah's and I am thinking of moving them into a 68 gallon with 3 not yet ordered Red Rose's. I really like these strains I will breed them if I get the right combinations; I am open to other sources as well. Good Thread.

    Is this what you are talking about ? Someone posted this fish on another discus site on facebook ..... they tagged it as a blue face brown.

    Larry,
    Looks similar but with the stress bars and lightly blue face/gill plates with the blue halo.

    The Blue-Faced San Merah looks similar to what Kenny has sold under the 3R / 3R Intermediate strain. I'm sure Kenny wouldn't mind me sharing, but this is from his last shipment in December 2020:


    These images are 2 months later directly after adding them to the main tank. Ignore the torn fins / minor scrapes / color differences - they were NOT happy being moved from one tank to the next (also, I'm no photographer :P).
