 I  saw  discuss  at  the  LFS  which  had  a  lot  of  tiny  blackdot  all  over.
 The  LFS  said  they  will  go  away  in  few  days.
 
 What  are  these  Dot  and  why  do  they  happen.

 It  is  known  as  Peppering.  Search  google  for  'Peppering  on  discus'.

 OK  so  i  just  read  a  few  articles  about  peppering  and  yes  it  is  what  i  was  talking  about.
 
 Most  of  the  articles  happen  to  mention  that  peppering  would  never  go  away  and  would  remain  with  the  fish..  they  will  only  decrease  and  increase  depending  of  the  surroundings.
 
 How  true  is  this?
 
 I  want  to  buy  these  discus  but  i  am  not  happy  with  the  peppering  on  them.....  Should  i  believe  the  LFS  that  the  peppering  would  go  away.
 Or  should  i  ask  him  to  arrange  for  Discus  which  do  not  have  peppering...  all  the  discus  he  has  do  have  peppering  on  them

 Peppering  will  reduce  in  Discus  based  on  environment/background.It  may  not  completely  go  away.
 Peppering  is  also  sign  that  Discus  is  not  in  very  best  of  health.This  is  not  true  for  all  cases  but  most  cases.This  is  my  personal  opinion.
 Ask  the  LFS  to  change  the  background  or  substrate  to  reduce  peppering.Based  on  that  you  can  decide  if  you  like  the  discus  or  not.
 
 Best  Regards

 Peppering  may  come  
 
      >  due  to  poor  water  quality  (maximum  cases)
 
      >  due  to  dark  background
 
      >  due  to  sickness
 
      >  due  to  poor  quality  of  breed
 
 
 from  my  experience.

 I've  seen  good  water  conditions  clear  peppering  almost  always.  Most  lfs  are  not  knowledgeable  enough  to  keep  discus  or  are  just  not  careful  to  maintain  good  conditions.  Also  new  arrivals  in  a  shop  are  in  constant  stress  due  to  high  traffic  in  the  shop.  Such  fish,  if  not  sick,  will  usually  clear  completely  in  good  conditions  at  home.  Just  make  sure  you  pick  healthy  fish.
