    Thanks Shawnie,

    Well i decided to use API Melafix and do some water changes,i think it was my fault last night i was wlk'n pass the tank i think i scare them a bit,being said i just ordered a new 90 gal tank with a coral life cover from BIG AL'S.

    p.s MY Xmas gift to myself,maybe i'll do some aquascaping

    1 tbs of uniodized salt per 10 gallons will fix it right up.

    Hello marlon. Beautiful Discus. The fin should heal nicely with some TLC, water changes keeping his/her water pristine. I'm glad to hear you're seeing improvement already. Too, you might want to try adding a drop or two of garlic juice into the tank or even adding some to the fish food. Garlic is an immune system booster for fish and humans too. Vita Chem is also a good additive.

    Well fin healed up nicely.....i've been watching him/her and i'm pretty sure i've not seen him/her eat, I'm monitor'n for a bit his fins are all up and looking fine as pic shows but no eating?????(Any Clue's)

    Is he/she stressed or is it something else,for sure discus takes up all my time when does it stop..

    Should i try some salt..........

    turn up the temp to around 90 for a few days and feed california blood worms
    hikari brand is the only kind they will eat, I get them at Petsmart.
