At the first glance leopard snakeskins and eruption discus may look quite similar to each other, but they do have some difference in the coverage, independency, and distribution of the red spots, as well as body shape and size, because different breeders cross their leopard discus with other different leopards or red-spotted greens to improve different aspects of coloration and spot density. For example, Penang Eruptions have fine spots all over the body. Outstanding individuals may also have spots on their gill plates and chins, as well as sharp red/blue contrast between their spots and the base color, while having the potential of growing to the size of 6+ inches with decent shape.
