now both discus are eating well, but the other is still swimming tail pointing up,head down,, but at times it will be normal like the other discus swimming.
i did a 20% change of water last nite, add a heater at 29. now both fish looks ok, except the swimming part..

Yes and no. Yes, if the damage already done. And no, if it just started with bacteria infection and it can be cured.

P/S : Thanks for your ups.

white worms like in other fish's tnak are due to left over food not being cleared. u feed ur fish beef heart?

when beef heart gets into the water and rots, it will foul up the water fast. if u are using mechanical filtration like ohf, i suggest u turn off ur pump first before feed. until they finish then start to turn on.

imo, those worms will not harm ur discus. what i did last time to my other tank was to change water and add salt and heater.

Just to share, i do WC 50% daily with some salt n anti cholrine direct tap water . DO let new water in slow, dont rush .
When come to breeding , change more than 50% water until it start to lay egg.
Discus eat well and grow fast with clean and good water condition.


Thanks
