i think la.. u see the eyes.. if its too big for the body that means it's stunted.. that means that it has big big eyes and small smalll body.. another way to check is when u buy it and compare lor.. i bout 4 of my bd from a farm during last yrs hari raya puasa. now hasen grown a bit.

hmm..
normally stunted discus will have disproptioned body features..
their slow growth rate compared to the rest of the discus is another tell tale sign

Ok, another question.

I bought discus with pigeon blood bloodline. Keep them with aro, now not stress, eats MP. always looking for food whenever I approach BUT the thing is the black spots, how can I ever get rid of the spots. See many discus with pigeon blood bloodline and never have a lot of black spots/specks.

Thought so too but it is not stress even if the aro comes dashing towards it. Can even snatch from aro!!! Wonder if it is too much light?

I dunn think is the bad water condition, l had check all the water parameter but all is acceptable. Ammonia = 5, Nitrite = 0 & Nitrate = 10 and one of my PB have many black gains on its face like pimples but others have very very little on them, Funny rite...
