 Hi,

 Just  wait  for  few  more  months.I  guess  it  would  get  the  coloration  once  it  grows  bigger.
 I  also  have  a  pair  of  Blue  turquoise  and  its  also  showing  the  same  coloration  as  you  mentioned.

 I  guess,  they'll  take  some  more  time  to  get  the  solid  blue  colour.  Be  patient  with  them  with  regular  water  change!  Try  consult  with  Yogesh,  Madan  or  Shiva  for  their  expert  advice.
 Cheers!
 
 Happy  Dicus  Keeping!

 Hi,
 
 Blue  Diamonds  will  show  darker  color  when  they  are  stressed.
 Instead  of  Tetrabits  &  DTW,  start  Hikari  Discus  Bio-Gold  pellets  if  you  are  not  using  Beefheart  and  you  will  not  need  any  other  color  enhancer.  Even  2-2.5"  juvenile  should  show  nice  skyblue  color  on  its  body.
 
 Ensure  your  tank  background  color  is  light.  Darker  backgrounds  stress  discus  &  they  will  not  show  their  natural  colors  then.  Don't  use  those  vibrant  color  background  posters  even  to  that  matter  poster  of  freshwater  plants.  Thumb Up  
 
 Painting  back-glass  with  light-blue  color  is  best  option  if  you  are  Blue  Diamond  lover.  You  will  not  get  contrasting  effect  but  your  fish  definitely  shows  good  color.
 Here's  the  pic  of  Shiva's  BD  tank,  background  is  light-blue  oilpaint.

 If  you  are  really  looking  to  enhance  blue  color,  you  will  have  to  use  Methyl  testosterone!

 CR4=Yellow,  CR5=Blue,  CR6=Red
 These  horomoned  ingredients  do  enhance  respective  colors  for  Discus,  but  do  damage  their  liver  and  fish  doesn't  make  it  in  the  long  run.

 Artemia  will  never  make  your  discus  blue  ,  but   when  you  feed  them   to  discus  babies   they  looks  red  and  healthy  .
