 Nothing  else,  just  the  blue  to  be  spread  all  around  the  body,  and  not  only  onto  the  fins.  About  the  food,  is  it  OK?
 
 Thanks  in  advance.

 They  look  more  turquoise  than  snakeskin  in  pictures.  But  they  are  looking  in  good  health.  
 
 Don't  know  who  advised  you  to  feed  crab  eggs  to  discus  but  otherwise  your  fish  diet  seems  fine.  
 Don't  overfeed  Freezed  dried  BW,  not  good  for  them.  
 Go  for  Hikari  Discus  Bio-Gold  pellets  for  better  coloration  you  are  looking  for.  These  strains  will  show  full  colors  in  adulthood  only.

 Prawns  crushed  with  spirnula  and  becosul  tables  have  shown  very  good  results  in  my  discus  collection.  Hikari,  as  suggested  by  Yogesh  is  an  excellent  feed.  You  need  to  balance  the  dried  food  with  live/frozen  food.

 Thank  you  Abhis9,  Vardesh,  VENKEY  and  Yogesh.  I  will  then  stop  feeding  the  crab  eggs  and  Freeze  dried  Bloodworms,  and  will  go  for  Discus  Bio  Gold.  
 
 Abhis9,
 As  for  the  "Prawns  crushed  with  spirnula  and  becosul  tablets"  goes.  Just  take  some  fresh  market  prawns  (250gms),  peel  their  skins  (to  get  only  the  meat)  and  wash  them,  now  add  a  spirulina  capsule  and  Bcomplex  capsule  to  it  and  put  them  altogether  in  grinder  (you  can  also  add  some  garlic  to  it),  mix  well  and  that's  it.  You  will  get  the  mix.  This  is  just  how  I  prepare  the  stuff.
 
 Thanks  a  lot  to  you  all  guys  Smile  once  more  for  all  your  help  Smile

 These  discus  are  growing  well  ,  they  have  potential  to  grow  Round  and  big  .
   Next  time  don't  add  Chicken  Breast  in  the  feed  and  see  if  they  are  consuming  more  feed  .   Chicken  heart  and  prawns   are  good  ,  try  adding  Multivitamin  also  in  feed  .
 
 
 Thanks
