When was the last time your last discus died? I doubt the internal parasites will ever survive long enough without the hosts although I would quarantine the fish first as a precaution.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
