discus with gash in side
i got 2 new discuss a couple of weeks ago. i already had 2 and got on well with them so got 2 more. just got home and saw a mark on its side. i havent seen any fo them fight at all and they are fine with the other fish thats in there. i loook at them most of the time as they are near my computerand never seen any fish in there fight.

could it be that he or she got caught on some bogwood or mite they actully of been some sort of fight in there? any1 have any ideas?

could it possibly be it just caught its self on the wood. ?
keep a close eye on them,and see if there is any change
in their behaviour.

I would keep a watch on your angelfish and red-tailed black shark. They may just be harassing each other without you looking at them.

i aint got my red tail shark anymore sold it lol. the info at the bottom has changed now but still got the angel fish in it. ill change it at some point

i was watching most of last nite and i didnt see anythin that i havent seen before. the angel fish follows the discuss around anyway and they get on fine.
just got home today from work and the mark has got bigger. my old man may think it could be some sort of fungus but ive never seen or herd of a fungus that is that fast in growing. im not realy sure wat to do casue if i take it out it will proberly die. plus my other tanks have mollys ready to give birth.

any1 have any sugestions
