So my dad ordered discus fish online and we got them yesterday and they all arrived alive except one that was lying on it's back but it's mouth was still moving so it was alive but it looked like it wasn't going to make it. So I go in to check on the poor thing and it wasn't in the tank with the other discus! So I asked my dad where it was and he said he put in the fridge, so I run downstairs and sure enough it was in a plastic bag in the fridge, but it's mouth was still moving! So I run upstairs and put it in the water right away and it sinks to the bottom, but it was still alive. A few hours later it started swimming around! But it was bumping into things and sinking, but the next day it was eating and swimming around with no trouble! It was in the fridge for 7 min and it is still alive!!! So we decided to name him Phoenix after the bird that always comes back to life in Harry Potter lol. He sure is a tough discus.
