I treated my discus to fungus guard yesterday and two of them started swimming normally, but the blood pigeon who is clearly the sickest now has rot fin..... Will the terta fungus guard cure this or should I use something else??

fin rot can result from any number of things stressing your fish, so with the meds you are using it really just depends if the fin rot is indeed fungal. however, the most common reason i have seen for "rotting" in discus is water quality. if that fungus guard does not work for your friends i would suggest trying to increase their temperature to at least 88 while they're sick and keeping their water pristine through frequent water changes while they recover.

Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
