 I  have  two  baby  discus,  less  than  2  inches  body  size,  blue  in  colour.  No  lines  or  dots.  From  time  to  time,  they  both  change  from  being  light  aquamarine  blue  to  very  dark  blue,  nearly  black.  Why  is  that?  Is  it  normal,  or  this  reflects  their  state  of  mind  like  distress  or  water  condition?

 Discus  normally  turn  dark  if  they  are   stressed.  By  your  description  your  discus  are  Blue  Diamonds...so  you  won't  see  stress  bars  if  they  are  stressed,  just  the  darkening  of  color.  What  conditions  are  they  kept  in?  That  can  help  us  give  you  more  information.  
 
 I  have  generally  noted  the  colors  of  my  discus  brighten  when  they  are  feeling  aggressive  and  chasing  eachother  or  just  after  a  water  change.  They  darken  in  the  absence  of  light  for  a  long  time.

 they  may  be  in  a  stress
 just  check  the  ph  &  nitrate  level  of  your  tank
 and  one  thing,dont  strike  on  the  glass  of  the  tank  usually  done  by  small  children..this  kind  of  action  make  discus  afraid.  Smile

 2  discus  of  less  then  2  inch  size  in  48  x  15  x15  size  tank  is  not  advisible  ,  this  is  the  cause  of  your  problem  .  Your  discus  finds  them  insecure  and  may  be  frighten  and  under  stress  hence  blacken  .  
 
 It  is  always  advisible  to  keep  discus  in  groups  ,  in  the  above  mentioned  size  tank  you  can  keep  atleast  20  discus  of  2  inch  size  .  
 
 
 Thanks

 looks  like  stress  for  me,  as  i  have  noticed  that  they  are  definitely  light  blue  in  colour  for  some  time  after  water  change.
