No they are fine. All of the discus I've ever had has had those tiny holes on their face and head. You can always get on the simply discus forum and post some pictures if you want kill all doubt.

Yea totally agree. My fish are not 100% mint, more like 90% mint. Comparing to the 70% mint ones in the wild, these seem pretty good!

Here's an update, almost 6 months no update. Nothing really changed. Discus still growing. The plants don't really grow much (ie. grow 1 leaf, lose 1 leaf) since I'm running super low light. The anubias at hte bottom likes to grow tall rather than horizontal. The huge amazon sword I bought from Big als as Tropica XL so it came this big. I foresee it shrinking as the larger leaves die off. I don't want to increase the light in fear of algae (biggest PITA in the world). The tank is reaching pretty high bioload simply due to the size of the fish. I feed 2-3 times a day, WC once after 2 days.

Update - AMazon sword died a while ago. Not enough light.

I love turning this tank light very low (and more reds and no blues), gives it a really nice peaceful aura. Water is really clear now.

Looks even better without the sword! I like how the lights can be so dim but still make the fish vibrant. Is that a Crinum or Crypt Balanese? A little more of that in the middle would look good.

hmmm been 6 months since last update wow. Removed all plants as they weren't growing so well. But now looking at the old photos, plants look amazing.

Really miss having planted tank. Discus are beautiful but there's something about plants....
