Bloody nose on discus

I never bought fish online but I bought these two discus and alenquer red they are growing great but since this one was a baby I got it has this red in his nose like blood it seems to be the dominant one out of the pair you know what that could be? The one with my electric blue ram is the one that doesn't have it

There are really only two likely causes in my experience.

I've found that fish with lighter colored, white, or albinos faces tend to show the blood vessels in their face from better than darker colored fish.

The second most likely cause is a bacterial infection which would require medication to eliminate. I've seen this type of infection even lead towards secondary infections such as pop-eye.

Yeah. The one of mine who has the "bloody nose" is albino. But he is extremely lazy and very timid unlike the rest. He acts almost weird. He rests of the bottom. But comes up for food, eats some and goes back down. Hopefully I figure that out soon. Here are mine.
