Why does my discus change its color a lot?

∮〓∮〓∮〓Hi every one。
I have just bought few discus。 They are called Albino Leopard Snakeskin Intermediate (which father is ALSS and mother is Albino melon)。 When I saw it, the color is very nice of red。 After I brought them home, in first 3 days their color is quite dar!k brown。 Then they appear to recover the red color for 1 day, then now its color is a bit orange-brown。 I am not sure why is it and how to keep its red color。 And here is the pictures!
Here is the one that I bought and their color at the first sight (at retailer)。 You can see their color are very nice。

Not sure it is because that I am keeping them in planted tank, an”d used dayli ght T5 lighti”ng set, while the retailer used bare tank with pink LED light。 Not sure those factors made so much effect or not? The discus are eating well with beef heart, blood worms。。。 but they are still ?very shy (now is 1。5 weeks after they came)
Thank you in advanced for all of your suggestion/opinions。

Hi bro。 Pink lights or purplish lights will enhance red colours on the fishes as compared to white lights。 Your discus are all still very healthy and they do change colour due to t”heir moods。
background and surrounding also involved
Nice discus, care to share where did you get them from?
Are you told by seller that your discus has defect like shorten gill base on picture 1,青岛鱼缸 4, 5, 6?
Enhance colour fade away so become brown。
Thank you very much for your suggestion。 My tank is 3 feet, with 1 canister, 1 ?OHF, two internal filter and 1 air stone。 The quality of water is fine。
I heard someone is saying that if I feed my discus with Astaxanthin beef heart (selling in some LHS) or spotted BH, then the color will be improved。 Is that r ight?
And do I need to change the light to pink one, but I am not sure my plants are fine with it or not, since the power of pink LED light might not be as strong as the T5HO。
Waiting for your recommendation。 Thanks a lot。Victor。

Th。anks bro bosebani。 Ar e they short gill de。fect。 I did not notice it and the seller also did not say anything。 Actually I am a newbie in discus and these are my first one。 How to treat them from that defect? Are they serious for those discus?

Enhance colour fade away so become brown。 Very sadly I have just found my newly bought Red melon also is short gill plate (bought from another seller)。 Actuall y I am a beginner so do not have experience on how to choose discus (and seller did not say anything about it)。 Could anyone help how to treat those defect? Changing dietary will help or not?
Here is the picture,▅ ▆ ▇ █ and :the short gill plate is quite serious!
Thank for sharing the photo, theyre brown based fishes so of course theyre brown with red spotted, and from cross to red melon than theyll have the pigeon gene I think。 As for short gill problem, dont think is easy to cure or no cure just maintain good quality water to prevent further wide open on gill。 Increase O2 content as well for short gill issue perhaps can help to improve a bit。 Last nice planted t ank and remember to clean your filters regularly as youre using m any filters。 Have fun! Oh forgot, guess you can use the white light for plant。
Most fish shops uses astaxanthin to enhance the red color of their red based discus。 U can try feeding yr discus with that and the red should be more prominent。
