What lovely fish. Why do people get fish they're not gonna give them the care and attention they need. Would love to see some pictures when they get back to their true glory. Well done you.

Just stunning...Congratulations!

(on a side note, the pics are a bit too large & may need resizing down a bit, unless it is just my computer.)

Beautiful discus!
Congrats. and keep us updated with their progress.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

my large chilid has that problem some time.i do a water change straight away and add salt.in and hour or so it dissapears.it's most probally extra mucus the fish churns out if theres something wrong with the water
