View Full Version : Female discus problems

Hello everyone,

I am a newbie to this site and found it because I am having problems with my female discus. Today when I came home from work, she has a protruding blood-colored mass coming out of her bottom. I have a 55 gal. tank with a male and female breeding pair. They have laid eggs several times, but no fry as a result of fungus or them eating them. Then all of the sudden they stop laying eggs and since then we have improved the tank by putting in live plants, natural rocks, tested water, and changed from frozen blood worms to frozen brine shrimp along with some color bits. What in the world could be wrong with her? Please help, don't want to lose her. Thanks!
