 Hi  Suyash,
       Discus  must  not  be  kept  in  such  a  small  tank  and  since  discus  lives  socially  the  minimum  number  of  discus  one  should  keep  is  6.  Not  one  or  two.
   
 Regards,
 Biswadeb

 Try  a  good  quality  Half  Moon  Betta.  ("fighter  fish")
 
 There  are  a  few  breeders  on  IAH  who  can  (hopefully)  give  you  a  good  deal  on  good  HM  Betta.  We  can  always  pick  one  from  Kurla  if  you  like  "window  shopping"  :)
 
 The  ones  I  have  are  Crown-Tails  and  not  even  remotely  "special".  And  yet  they  look  really  colorful.

 Do  you  mean  "colorful  species  of  Discus"  or  any  Fresh-water  fish?
 
 In  FW  fish,  Cichlids  (Malawis,  Tanganyikan  and  New-World)  are  most  colorful.  Some  of  these  are  available  for  <Rs.  500.
 
 Malawis  and  (most)  New  World  sps  are  not  suitable  for  12"  tank.  
 
 Tanganyikan  Shell-dwellers,  maybe  Dwarf  Cichlids  (Apistogramma  and  Ram  Cichlids)  are  suitable  for  12"  tank.  (Tanga's  may  not  be  available  for  <Rs.  500.)
 
 Other  "colorful"  fish  are  the  ones  you  have  already  kept:  Guppies,  Mollies  etc  etc..
 
 For  images,  I  think  you  already  know  about  Malawi  Cichlids.  Google  the  words  in  BOLD  above  for  images.
 
 Good  luck,
 Sid

 You  will  get  locally  bred  juvi  Blue  Turquoise,  Blue  Diamonds,  Red  Maps  &  other  Pigeon  varieties  etc.  within  budget  mentioned  above.  However,  quality  of  fish  may  or  may  not  be  that  great.
 
 If  you  just  want  to  keep  a  pair  of  discus  in  minimum  tank  footprint,  it  has  to  be  confirmed  adult  breeding  pair  which  can  be  kept  in  18"  cubical  tank.
