I came across some discus in a pet store that had a film like covering over their eyes(almost like cataract in people).But in a couple of days with some added salt,raise in temperature and frequent water changes the condition went.The outer eye covering just fell off.
What is this that had happened to them and why?
Please help.....

this normaly happends to discus that have Internal parasites, such as protozoa or flukes, are one cause. I'm not aware of any treatments for those problems. Bacteria can infect eyes damaged by injury and some times if the PH has droped very low and poor water quality

what are your parameters??
