    My wife and I are picking up some discus tomorrow and we wanted to see if anyone can positively identify the strain these are. We're most interested in the white ones, if they're true albino strains or not. Thanks!

    I think that white one is an albino, but as I don't know much about Discus, let's wait for someone else to come along!
    A severe lack of trichogaster.

    Just because your Gourami is sick does not mean it is always Iridovirus, DGIV, Gourami Disease, et cetera.
    Look at all the other factors in your tank before coming to this conclusion.

    Like said. Only the one pigmentless one with solid red eyes is albino. Those are some of the requirement for any species to be albino.
    The others are just very pale fish.

    The one is definetly an albino. The others are a turquoise variety and the other is a cobalt type. The albino is most likely one of the original "golden" albino strains (definetly not an albino blue diamond).
