The name is Sailfin Red Turquoise discus. There are two wild species in the genus Symphysodon, S. aequifasciata and S. discus, with three subspecies in the first species: S. aequifasciata aequifasciata (the Green Discus), S. aequifasciata haraldi (the Blue discus) and S. aequifasciata axelrodi (the Brown Discus). The different variations available today have been bred from these.
