View Full Version : Discus fry

10-26-2006, 10:52 PM
We have some discus fry that lay on the bottom of the tank, as though they are sleeping on their side. As soon as we put food in they swim up to get it but havent seen this happen in any of the other fry we have had. I have checked the water for the normal, ammonia, nitrate, nitrite etc thats all fine. Cant understand it, can anyone suggest anything.

depending on the size of the fry the water is probably somehow affecting them, in this case a negative way.I know discus live in almost perfect water, what does your 'water check' say? Ph...Temp...Hardness...

just found out that the babies might have eaten something that there bodies were not ready for. Try remembering what they might have got a-hold of.
