    The discus will not survive the netting, and transfer back to the store or whereever they came from. They are simply not strong enough to stand up to it. It's hard enough for them getting to your tank as it is.

    You are stuck with them.

    Having said that, i think that the best thing you can do right now is to do a large WC daily, as much as you possibly can for the next week or so. Then test the params again before WC and see how it goes. Meanwhile, if the fish are not eatring the food, cut down on the feeding since it will just pollute the water.

    Have you observed them picking at things in the tank without your presense? If they are then they still have an appetite.

    What filter are you using and what size is the tank?
    Fiiiiiiiiiiissssshhhhhh!

    We definitely need more information about your tank and filtration. Since you have a serious ammonia (and soon a nitrite) problem, I suggest getting a bacterial booster to help speed up the growth of your BB colony. Keep in mind that this doesnt instantly cycle your tank and you will have to continue doing water changes to keep the parameters acceptable. Given that they are discus, the water changes will be especially important.

    LH suggested Ick, in which case you should see white spots forming on the fish. In that case you'll need to raise the temperature (generally above 82-84, although I don't know the water parameters for discus) and treat with Ick medication for a few weeks.

    Best of luck, I hope it all works out.
