Ive never had/seen that in my discus. Red melons, super red whites, mandarin passions, pigeon bloods. All the fry from them have had no troubles finding parents for me. I have seen this, though, in albino, whites, platinums, etc.... i have no foundation for this ither than my own observations, but i think the lack of color makes it harder for them to find.

Ok, so it's the whites and not the reds that are a problem. Interesting.

I'll have to talk to my advisor about our budget tomorrow. We may not even have available budget until June because of how these things work out.

But he did tell me he has a fairly hard to find group of curipera wilds. Heres pics. And if you find wild types that can fit your budget, lemme know. Id be in for a dozen.

I didn't mean pure wild types, just closer in coloration to wild types. No way we could afford that

Ok, well if i order them. I can send them your way and just figure payment out later. I cant tell you how awsone the research your doing is. If to nobody else, know that to me, doing this is nothing compared to what you can do for our passion of symphosodon . Just furthering my cause, your cause, and makin a good new friend never hurt either. Its been rather nice having someone to nerd out with. So thank you sir

I'm glad you really appreciate this research! Honestly, I'm really excited myself just to have the chance to keep these guys. My mom never liked them growing up, and she had veto power over my stocking plans, so i never got a chance to try them but I've always wanted to. Now I don't have the space or the money so this project is probably going to be my only chance for years to keep these awesome fish. It's fantastic to learn about them. Especially because of how far science is behind the aquarists on this one. I've learned more about discus from you and people like you than from all the papers I read. Hopefully I can throw a little bit of knowledge into the pool, maybe even something immediately useful. And considering how few people keep fish locally here any fishkeeping friend is invaluable. Thanks again for all the support with this stuff, not just the fish but especially the information!
