    Sedated discus

    Hi all I have had 4 new discus delivered from a top U.K. dealer and when they arrived they had been sedated for travel.
    3 of the fish are perfect but 1 is lying down and now on day5 the breeder said not to worry it will eventually right itself, I have taken the other fish out of the tank but this one will not get up. Any advice welcome.

    Sorry for the late reply. Can you update us on the fish please.

    Fish are sometimes sedated with clove oil for transport during long distances, but laying down after 5 days is not 'normal' in my opinion. Keep in contact with the seller, I am sure that being in the UK, the seller will do the 'right thing' if the fish does not survive.

    Why me ?
