this time the seller lied to me. and that beautiful fishes are my worst bought.
Zebra danios move very fast and this often frightens the discus. Tetras are more preferable compared to danios.

It could be possibly intestinal parasites seeing as you also feed them beefhearts. Is their poo whitish and stringy? What are your water parameters?

you should turn you lights off for a bit so they can rest for a bit. do a WC every other day or so and dont freak out too much about it...
if it doesnt stop get paraguard and do dips, i wouldnt treat the tank with it. it should help them and even if its not parasites, then i dont think the med will hurt them at all.

thank you

I got the problem.

the problem is a kind of disease which make three of them ill.

they have whitish and stringy pee. as you told me. but there is not much beef hearts I give them twice a week.
they don't like to eat. its a kind of in body (stomach)disease with no wound or sign.
how can I cure them

and blue I thought I told you why it is my worst buy. because they are 3" and one of them layed eggs. and the seller lied to me because he told me they are young about 3 or 4 months but a female which lay eggs must have at list 7 or 8 months and must be about 4".

new Idea

every body I myself found some way to get rid of this problem.

first remember in night the tank must be darker than room , ( not very important

do not feed your fish about 2 or 3 days
do a more cycling water ( more than 10 %) each day, because every one said to me about 10 but do more about 15
drop down the temperature to 27 or 26 celsius. (81 or 79 fahrenheit)
then start to do your regular programs.
feed them and enjoy your fish keeping
in addition you will see more growing speed :P (wow)

hope this helps.
