 Raise  the  temperature  to  the  low  80s,  make  sure  the  water  is  clean  and  all  of  the  basic  Discus  things.give  some  good  antibiotic  ,  After  they  are  eating  the  food  they  were  used  to  for  at  least  a  week  start  adding  10-20%  of  another  food  with  the  food  they  are  used  to.  You  can  slowly  increase  this  amount  over  a  time  period  of  a  few  weeks  and  then  do  the  same  with  another  food.  I  would  recommend  not  feeding  blood  worms  to  them  at  all.  Jack  Wattley  strongly  recommends  against  feeding  blood  worms  because  they  can  get  caught  in  the  Discus's  intestines  and  kill  the  fish.  I've  personally  never  had  this  problem  with  Discus  though  why  risk  it  when  there  are  so  many  other  live  foods  around.  Jack  Wattley  knows  more  about  Discus  than  I  ever  expect  to  learn  and  he  is  a  very  nice  gentleman  that  really  cares  about  fish  and  the  hobby  so  I  believe  him.

 It  is  normal  in  blue  diamonds  sometimes  turning  black  ,  since  you  had  mentioned  that  the  discus  was  eating  well  till  yesterday  ,  why  don't  you  wait  and  see  if  he  is  improving  ,  since  you  had  put  on  the  heater  .  pl  check  the  water  temp  .  your  tank  size  is  30x15x12  and  i  think  you  had  put  on  300  W  heater  which  is  on  higher  side  .  
 
 Loking  at  your  BD  it  looks  that  his  forehead  has  sunken  and  is  stunted  ,  but  still  you  try  from  your  side  by  feeding  well  and  by  doing  good  WC  .
 
 
 Sandy  my  brother  ,  you  are  new  in  his  forum  and  there  are  lot  of  good  posts  and  articles  for  you  to  learn  and  understand  .  Antibiotic  should  be  the  last  option  in  treating  any  discus  ,  so  one  should  be  very  careful  while  recommending  any  antibiotics  .
 
 
 Thanks

 Dear  mahadev_ambitionb,
 I  totally  agree  with  Shiva,  BD  sometimes  turns  black  and  the  discus  also  look  stunt  to  me.  Discus  is  very  sencetive  fish  you  have  to  think  1000  times  before  adding  any  medication  to  your  Discus  tank.  from  my  experience  go  with  Shiva's  words  it  will  help  you  out  of  this  problem.
 Thanks,
