    Well I haven't updated this one in a while either so I'll give a brief rundown of whats been happening.
    In late June I decided to get back in the Discus game, I picked up 2 brown snakeskin discus from a local supplier and they were around 4 inches then.
    Mid July I picked up 3 Tony Tan Discus from a local importer, 1 Blue Diamond, 1 Altum Flora and 1 Galaxy Turquoise. Start of August I picked up 3 more Blue Diamonds and 1 Red Turquoise.

    I made the major mistake of not QT the last 4, mainly because I had no tanks to QT them in and they were from the same batch as the original brown snakeskins. Well a couple days passed and everything seemed to be going perfectly, like I dodged the bullet. Not so lucky as a matter of fact.

    One night after I was doing my daily water changes ( 50 - 70% daily) I noticed the Red Turquoise all alone in the corner, I attributed this due to the stress of the water change and thought it would clear up by the next day. When I was feeding the following morning I realized the Turq was still by herself and the stress bars were fairly prominent. Upon further observation I saw all 3 of the new Blue Diamonds were showing signs of fin rot.

    I won't lie to you, my heart sunk. To make the rest of the story short, I started a treatment right away and as many of you know, with medication Discus can go both ways. The larger of the brown snakeskin's began showing signs of swim bladder disease, I'm talking about a 5inch plus fish swimming on its side like a pancake. I lowered the water level to 1/4 of its original height (to reduce the pressure on the water bladder) and did a water change while putting carbon in the filter to remove the remnants of the medication.

    Unfortunately the following morning things got even worse, the first brown snakeskin was laying completely on the bottom glass, two of the three blue diamonds were swimming head down and the other big snakeskin was floating. During this time the three tony tan discus seemed completely unaffected by what was transpiring in the tank and weren't showing any signs of fin rot or swim bladder disease.

    I made the extremely hard decision to cull the 4 affected Discus after another day of lowering the water level and adding aquarium salt. Thankfully the five I have left seem to be okay for now and the fin rot looks to be healing already on the remaining blue diamond (1 out of the 3).

    Here are some pics.

    Yeah man sorry to hear about yours too. It's really hard when you see a $100+ fish just suffering after you knew they were doing so well.

    Mojo, so so sorry to hear about the discus....I know how you feel though I lost 3 because I wasn't prepared for the issues caused by stress from other pairs spawning. Once I realized I had a problem I separated them and treated but continued failing and I had to make the choice to euthanize and one died during the night. It was horrible.

    QT is something I would never skip but you know it's like playing Russian roulette and eventually your gonna lose. I wish very much you didn't have to go through that :(

    Thanks Judi, I'm sorry you lost 3 I know you have really amazing discus from Kenny.

    On a lighter note, I wish I could get some of the spawn from your pairs :)

    lol Sandz, a local fish farm has a huge brown snakeskin for sale right now, if I convert it to US he's asking $125, its probably around 8 inches, I would buy it but I'm pretty sure its not a pure snakeskin, I think if I breed it it will throw back 50% pigeon blood.

    Also my pre filter came in for my Aquaclear 110 which is my primary filtration on this tank, it's a filter max III, so we'll see how effective it is but I know pre filters are highly recommended on grow out tanks.
