The Pigeon Snakeskin discus is an extremely popular strain that is formed by crossing two other popular varieties: you guessed it, the Snakeskin and Pigeon Blood discus strains. The Pigeon Snakeskin came into prevalence in the 1980’s, starting in Malaysia. From the 1990’s onward, this popular strain has been a staple in breeders’ and collectors’ breeding stock around the world. Lately, there has been even greater variation within the strain, with different colored dots such as blue, red, orange, and yellow appearing alongside normal patterning.
