Can anyone recommend a first aid kit for discus? I intend to stock up some common medication that is effective for discus. I noticed two symtoms quite prevalent in most discus, it is cloudy eyes and tail rot, not sure anymore. Please advice. I am new to discus and I intend to keep about 5 but do not want to lose any of them.

I understand that we have to change water everyday because of feeding beef heart to discus. Would draining 50% of the water and replacing with 50% aged water consider OK or should it be more

got black black patchy pactchy lidat means stress.

that time my whole discus wipe out cause of fungus, the signs they show are like patchy black black and not eating.

i not expert on what medication to add, but better dont anyhow add.

when ur fren get that particular discus is it already like that? if it is like that then i think got some type of disease, better isolate it before it spreads to the other.

Check your water. water aged for a month should low in PH. How about water temp? Beware of PH shock and temp shock when introducing new fishes. Your fish should be in your tank for two days already, what is the development?
