    Smile Fixing a Discus when not eating

    0 Not allowed!
    When I combined my discus tanks and rehoused the remaining discus together, one of my discus stopped eating.

    Since frozen worms did not get the fish back to eating I added salt and raised the tank to 90 F. Took about two weeks (only replaced the salt once during WC) but the discus is now eating well.

    While this may be coincidence or due to other factors, still, the process once again appears to have worked.
    Knowledge is fun(damental)

    A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.

    phongnguyen123, you might want to start your own thread about your fish, and when you do please post the water parameters, tank size, tank mates, and maintenance schedule.

    Cermet, I'm pretty sure your fish just got hungry and started eating. After all, it didn't eat for two weeks.
    People say if you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all... Then they wonder why am I so quiet.
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?

    Your fish probably has worms. Have you treated with metro yet? It's a 10 treatment with raised water temps to 90.

    Hey guys, just got myself a large 9" oscar. Is there any way to determine gender while they are in the tank? Do they have fin patterns that pertain to only male or only female?
    If you want to get dumps certified then take advantage of latest 350-018 braindumps as well as RIVERBED test demos and pass real exam on first try. See more detail about this products on University of California, San Francisco and wikipedia best wishes

    Angelblue15, please start you own thread to ask your question
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
