 Those  are  beautiful  fish.  Can't  wait  for  Shiva  to  start  breeding  them.  I  have  similar  LSS  and  EL  from  wayne's,  Phillipines.  but  they  are  with  browinsh  base  with  little  spots  appearing  in  the  center.
 
 Shiva,  you  are  an  assett  to  the  discus  hobbyist  community  in  India.  
 
 Yogesh  great  job  with  the  pics.

@  Shiva
 
 Which  strain  in  first  2  pics.  
 
 @  venky
 
 Yogi  is  right.  not  seems  ring  leopard  but  snake  skin  leopard  or  may  be  pattern  not  that  much  identical  in  small  size.  May  be  fully  grown  shows  the  actual  rings.  I  m  90%  sure  that  this  is  snake  skin  leopard.                

 
 I  think  the  first  2  are  Checkerboard  Pigeons.
 
 snake  skin  leopard  =  leopard  snake  skin?
 Couldn't  understand!  You  think  the  ones  in  the  last  pic  are  a  14  bar  LSS?

 Hey  Adi,
 
 If  we  are  talking  about  Venky's  fish,  I  don't  think  its  Snakeskin.
 Looks  like  just  7B  'Leopard'  Smile

 What  does  it  mean  when  you  say  that  a  discus  has  "bulldog  features"?  Would  it  mean  that  the  facial  area  is  less  compared  to  other  "normal"  discus?  That's  what  I  could  think  of  after  looking  at  the  last  photo  in  the  set  from  Shiva.  Would  be  grateful  if  some  one  would  explain  the  term.

 Some  deformed  culls  were  bred  &  marketed  as  'Bulldog'  shaped  discus.  Its  forehead  looks  compressed  &  body  appear  taller  than  normal  discus  also  called  'standing  egg'  shape.  You  can  google  for  more  information  &  pictures  about  Bulldog  discus.
 
 I  remember  one  thread  featuring  Bulldog  discus  here  on  IAH.

 Yogi  ya  i  am  talking  about  Venky's  discus.  That's  not  "snake  skin"  (because  snake  skin  having  very  thin  line  pattern  having  14  bars).  As  beta  said  actual  name  is  leopard  snake  skin  (or  as  i  said  snake  skin  leopard  Smile).  Most  of  time  people  calling  this  variety  ring  leopard  (even  in  adult  discus  i  didn't  find  a  single  ring  at  all).  
 
 Shiva's  first  2  pics  not  looking  like  checkerboard  pigeon  but  some  nonidentical  strain  (by  seeing  picture).  Shiva  put  some  light.

 Venky's  Discus  is  9  Bar  Leopard  ,  they  are  not  LSS  .  LSS  are  14  bars

 Last  Saturday  I  and  my  brother  were  there  in  Mumbai  for  Exhibition  but  my  main  intention  was  to  visit  Shiva  sir's  hatchery.  I  called  him  up  to  fix  the  appointment  and  we  agreed  on  meeting  in  the  evening.  So  just  to  kill  the  time  I  started  wondering  in  the  exhibition  and  when  I  was  about  to  leave  to  Shiva's  hatchery  I  called  him  to  check  if  we  still  can  meet  at  his  hatchery.  And  fortunately  Shiva  sir  was  present  in  the  exhibition  only.  He  guided  me  through  the  map  to  reach  to  his  hatchery  from  Bandra  as  I  was  on  my  bike.  He  soon  left  the  exhibition  although  he  had  just  arrived  to  see  it.
 
 In  the  end  I  landed  up  near  last  landmark  and  he  welcomed  us  in  hatchery.  I  was  amazed  to  see  so  many  quality  discus  in  his  hatchery  and  his  dedication  towards  this  hobby  and  breeding.  His  son,  Ritesh  is  a  good  chap  and  helps  him  in  maintaining  the  quality  discus  strains.  I  was  there  around  2  hrs  and  we  discussed  discus  and  only  discus   Very Happy.  I  managed  to  collect  few  discus  from  him.  I  acclimated  them  to  Pune  climate  and  to  my  surprise,  they  have  adjusted  to  the  Pune  water  and  temperature  in  no  time.  I  had  acclimated  them  in  the  night  -  same  day  and  next  day  they  were  begging  for  the  food.  I've  never  seen  discus  adjusting  themselves  so  quickly.  Not  to  forget  I've  got  discus  in  1.5"  to  2"  size.  I  was  really  amazed  to  see  these  little  monsters  getting  adapted  to  local  water  conditions.
 
 I've  clicked  few  snaps  of  discus  and  sharing  the  same.
