Re: discus emergency!
Stop adding pH down. It is not proving useful and will do more harm than help. What decorations are you using? What substrate are you using? What is the pH of your tapwater?

I am freaking out and have limited knowledge. I dont want to chemical the crap out of my fish but I am struggling. My bounce was caused by hard water. I took 4 gallons out and put in distilled to try and soften it.
Tank info... 100 gal, 4 med Discus
, tetras, not planted
