We need water parameters, tank size, and food to proceed with helping. Also discus shouldn't be kept alone in a tank (single species) and like groups of 5.

38 gallon :
Pelvicachromis Taeniatus Nigerian Red not yet breeding pair
4 Pangio Kuhli
12 Hemmigrammus Bleheri
2 Botia Lohachata
1 Botia Straita
1 Ancistrus Sp.
6 Poecilia Reticulata

The Wet Spot Portland Oregon!!!!!!

ADA: Do!aqua Iwagumi 10 gallon size!
7 Clown Killies
7 Ghost shrimp

discus are extremely difficult fish to keep, which is why they are so valuable and prized. There is a discus profile here in the fish profiles, take a look at it. As christople said, we need to know your water parameters, tank age, temps, etc. as many details as you can find about your tank.

Best thing you could do is return the fish to the fish store you bought him at
