New discus

Got some new babies today. They are supposed to be red marlboro, snake skins and some other that is a rusty color. If anyone has any idea on the actually color/name for them, I'd appreciate it.

I'm impressed too Cindy. They're terrific looking fish and look VERY healthy. The real colors of discus won't come out until they're at least a year old (unless they've been treated with hormones which will stunt them). So many breeders have crossed so many strains that they make up names as they go. For the most part it looks like you've got red melons and one red turquise.

You might want to keep a monthly photo record to gauge their development.

That's awesome. Maybe that's what she meant. Red melons as opposed to red marlboro. lol Thanks Brian!!! The photo diary is a good idea.
