Im curious to know peoples thoughts on these bloodlines? Butterfly (pigeon) and Mercury. Mercury is a fairly new strain and the full white on white butterfly strain is not common in my area?

Since you are asking for personal opinions, just treat the following as mine - eg. very personal and without judgment of other tastes.

IMO none of the aquarium strains are as elegant and subtle as the natural wild forms although, I admit, some are more spectacular and colourful. I've seen many discus in bare-bottom tanks with minimal decor in which case natural environment and subtlety is not a goal and the more brightly coloured and patterned fish are a better choice. However, regarding these particular white-on-white ones, they lack both colour and contrast and have no appeal to me at all beyond possibly appreciation for the skill of breeders to create all these varieties.
