    Congrats! You should always do more tests. I test my water every day when my mollies or platies are pregnant.

    Temp is too low, 85 is optimal for Discus

    For discus fish, the ideal temperature value is between 82 - 88oF (28 - 31oC). They can survive at a temperature of 77oF (25oC) but their resistance to pathogens may start to drop.
