    Glad you uploaded the pictures because discus names can be very misleading. In this case, I believe the snow white phenotype results from a ghost gene which blocks expression of colors and patterns in a homozygous condition. I don't know if this mutation is dominant, semi-dominant or recessive. In most cases, the progeny should resemble either one parent or the other. You will not get something in between.

    In my experience, the male parent usually produces the most slime and do more parental care for the brood.
    At my age, everything is irritating.

    Cheers!

    May try using a flashlight, shine the light on the side of the body, if you see 14 stress bars those are the snakeskins. Possible one of the fry has a bladder problem.

    Hi Cliff it's getting interesting I hope. I can already make out clear snakeskin bars on about 3 of the fry. My guess at this stage is that roughly half of them are snakeskins. It's very distinctive because bars are very thin and there are many more than the usual (9?). Will keep you posted. They're still feeding well🤞🤞
