    That's a shame. You worked hard to save him but I think that when they get that gaunt look, and thin it is already too late. Just keep up the good work with the others and don't lose sleep over the...

    Make sure you do some good research before you get your fish. Do a search for stunted discus, sick Discus and temperatures and water change requirements. I think 4 fish maximum in that size of tank.

    That's a big difference. The colour has really come back. Sure due to the water changes and salt dips. Now the next trick is to get it to fatten up. This is where you could use Epsom salts to clear...

    Sad to hear, but interesting about what you found. Don't blame yourself Sayid, you did more than most would to fix the problem. I am sure your fish had a good life in your care, that's what matters.
