    Hi
    Discus turn black when there less than happy with something but there can be a multitude of reasons for this. How is the tank decorated. have you checked temperature and pH. Anythign that migth stress them.

    Yeah the tank parameters have all been prefect until ii did a salt bath and some medication and the ph went up a little but they have been black for at least a week. the tank has a large piece of driftwood anchored to the bottom and like a greek collum thing and a few sword plants.
