 Neil  ....  The  discus  looks  to  be  doing  good.   Thumb Up  Atleast  they  are  eager  to  eat  whenever  fed.  They  are  active  and  come  on  the  front  of  the  tank  whenever  I  go  near  the  tank.  The  fins  have  not  worsened  during  the  last  8  days.  its  showing  signs  of  improvement  but  I  think  it  will  take  another  fornight  or  so.  Let  me  keep  my  fingers  crossed.
 
 However,  I  have  noticed  that  out  of  the  6  discuss  that  i  have  all  of  them,  except  one,  display  brown  shades  with  dark  brown  /  black  stripes,  one  of  them  most  of  the  time  (  though  not  always)  show  a  darkish  black  shade.  He  eats  and  swims  normally,  but  at  times  seems  to  be  scared  /  stressed.  Can  any  one  guide  me,  if  I  need  to  do  anything.
 
 I  need  to  thank  you,  Shiva  and  Yogesh  for  all  the  help  and  guidance  offered.
 
 Regards
 
 Ramesh  Nevgi

 Black  stripes  what  you  see  are  stress  bars  ,  Discus  under  stress  shows  this  bars  .  In  melons  and  other  pigeon  genes  strain  you  will  not  see  such  bars  ,  instead   you  will  see  more  peppering  when  they  are  under  stress  .  
 
 Since  they  are  eating  well  ,  i  think  there  is  nothing  to  worry  .  just  provide  them  good  water  condition  .
 
 Thanks

 Hi  Ramesh,
 
 Good  to  hear  your  discus  are  recovering  from  chlorine-burn.
 
 If  they  are  active  in  the  tank,  always  begging  for  food  &  eating  well;  they  are  doing  good.  Always  a  sign  of  healthy  discus.
 Sometimes,  too  powerful  lighting  makes  them  go  stressed  either.
 Good  water  condition,  light  colour  background  &  providing  sufficient  light  will  help  your  overcome  their  stress  factor.
 
 Just  be  careful  with  heavy  water  changes  specially  during  monsoon  &  winter  season.  40-50%  WC  is  enough  during  such  season.
 Summer  is  best  time  for  massive  WC.  I  do  almost  3/4  times  90-95%  daily  WC  during  this  period.  Smile  
 For  dechlorinator,  you  can  get  hypo  crystals  (Sodium  Thiosulfate)  from  your  LFS  or   can  get  it  from  Dawa  Bazaaer  (Princess  Street).
 Adding  1  crystal  per  10G  of  water  is  enough  to  dechlorinate  tap-water.

 Shiva  /  yogesh  ....  Thanks  for  your  inputs.  They  are  always  helpful.  Shall  always  bank  on  you  if  need  be  .  
 
 Yogesh  :  w.r.t  dechlorination,  I  have  been  using  the  dechlorinator  available  with  the  LFS  .  I  generally  fill  buckets  and  add  dechlorinator  and  keep  the  buckets  for  around  1  hour  before  adding  this  water  to  the  tank.  Would  like  to  know  if  the  dechlorinator  what  we  get  at  the  LFS  is  the  same  as  sodium  thiosulphate  or  its  different.  How  long  do  I  have  to  keep  the  water  (after  ¬†adding  the  sodium  thiosulphate  crystals)  before  adding  to  the  tank  .  I  believe  adding  water  and  Sodium  Thiosuphate  at  the  same  time  in  the  tank  is  a  definite  NO-NO.....
 
 Regards

 Right  Ramesh,  the  bottled  solutions  you  get  with  LFS  is  nothing  but  liquid  form  of  Sodium  Thiosulphate.  It  would  be  bit  expensive  option  for  us  discus-keepers  who  do  daily  WC.
 Crystal  form  proves  cost-effective,  generally  stocked  by  most  lab  suppliers  commonly  known  as  Hypo.
 You  can  either  directly  drop  crystals  as  per  dosage  or  prepare  your  bulk  liquid  by  dissolving  it  in  water  in  advance  as  liquid  action  is  quicker  than  solid  form  for  dechlorination.  Generally  all  chlorine  in  water  will  evaporate  within  5-10  minutes  after  droping  hypo  provided  it  dissolves  fast  with  sufficient  aeration.  
 
 Don't  drop  excess  hypo  than  recommended  as  it  will  suffocate/stress  your  discus.

 Thanks  for  your  guidance.  Shall  get  sodium  thiosulphate  this  week  instead  of  the  decholrinator  that  I  get  from  my  LFS.

 Shiva  ...  I  refer  to  your  response   above.  I  am  not  clear  whether  I  have  mentioned  my  problem  clearly.  I  am  rephrasing  what  I  want  to  say  ,,,,
 
 I  have  6  discus  ,  out  of  which,  all  but  one  show  a  good  bright  brown  colour  with  dark  brown  /  black  stripes  .  However,  the  other  one  (many  a  times  ....   though  not  always)  show  a  very  darkish  /  blackish  colur  and  he  looks  to  be  under  stress  ...  He  eats  well  but  becomes  more  darker  while  eating  ...  he  might  be  exhibiting  brownish  shade  like  others  before  I  feed  them  but  within  a  minute  from  the  time  I  feed  them   the  entire  body  of  this  particular  disucs  becomes  blackish  ...  as  if  charred.  At  other  time  too  i  see  him  like  this  ...  but  nothing  wrong  with  his  eating  /  swimming  pattern  (when  not  darkish).
 
 can  you  please   help.
 
 Regards
 
 Ramesh
