Peppering comes from either poor breeding stock our being kept in a tank with dark substrate/background, if the ones kept in dark conditions are caught early the peppering can be reversed but peppering from bad breeding stock can't be reversed. If the solid colors are what you want go for it just be sure your getting good quality and Kennys quality is top notch

thank you Eddie, I love to learn and ever since I first got an O and put it in a 10g then found this place I pride myself in my research and with how much discus cost I wanted to learn as much as possible before making that leap
