Getting Rid of Peppering
Ardan Huck March 15, 2002

Some strains of discus, mostly pigeon-blood or pigeon-blood crosses, may acquire peppering, or darkening of coloration in some areas of the body. This can be due to genetics, or how the discus is raised somewhat (i.e. food or water quality)

Getting rid of this darkening or at least "lightening" it up so it is less noticeable can be accomplished by changing the backround that the fish is in.

1. Move the aquarium in front of a light colored painted wall (like white paint)

2. Paint the sides and bottom of the aquarium with a light colored paint (white or light blue)

3. Maintain good water quality and good food.
