recovering sick discus

i bought some discus about 2 weeks ago. Well they were a sick batch to say the least. We bought 5 and 2 remain. I treated one that we have left with a salt bath and have been running warmer temperatures for the past couple of days and it seems to be working. One of them is fine, absolutely great. The one i gave the salt bath to, his side is better (had discoloration) and he's eating but he's still almost black. What I was wondering is will he get normal coloring back if he lives? They were supposed to be blue tourqs and the healthy ones (we have others) are nothing like him.

Your discus should be able to return to his normal coloration when he fully recovers. He is only stressed aside from being weakened. Black coloration is not normal and is a sign of stress on the discus' part.

Good luck and congratulations on being able to save the remaining two.:)
