 Yes,  I  had  a  similar  condition  to  one  of  mine  last  month  someitme,,,
 It  took  a  few  days  to  go.
 After  advice  form  my  discus  person...  I  got  the  Discus  form  him...
 I  put  250  MG  for  a  Yellow  Anti-Bacteria   medicine.  I  have  it  at  home,  if  you  Send  me  a  PM  with  you  telephone  no.  I  can  SMS  you  the  name  in  the  evening,  which  I  dont  know  right  now...I  am  sure  someone  on  the  forum  will  tell  you  before  that...
 And  kept  the  tank  lights  off.  (Don't  know  why  I  was  advised  that.)
 She  is  perfectly  fine  now...Touch  Wood.!
 Hope  it  gets  well  soon...
   Smile
 NOTE:  Before  you  do  anything  please  diagnose  more!!!.
 Pic  would  help,  but  the  swollen  eyes  can  be  like  POP  Eye  dissease  which  is  terrible...

 pop  eye  is  due  to  bad  water  conditions.
 Please  give  more  details  of  your  tank,  size,  filter,  inhabitants  etc.
 Without  this  information  it  gets  very  hard  to  give  proper  treatment.

 The  tank  temperature  is  kept  at  30  degree  celcius.  The  tank  size  is  2x2x2  with  6  discus.  The  sixe  of  discus  is  around  3-4  inch.  I  do  20  %  water  chnage  every  day.
 I  feed  them  goat  heart  in  the  morning  &  tetrabits  in  the  evening.

 Hi,
 I  had  a  simillar  condition,  
 I  had  6  Discus  too...
 2  of  them  got  the  disease,  slowly...
 yes  I  admit  it  was  cause  I  believe  was  due  to  poor  conditions  in  the  tank...
 (I  came  back  from  Goa  Holiday,  tank  was  neglected  for  a  week.)
 I  thought  it  was  a  fungus  first  so  i  tried  anti  fungual  and  its  cures,  but  nothing  helped,  tank  temp  was  about  30-31  then  and  all  green  because  of  it.
 I  lost  the  larger  of  the  2  infected  ones  it  was  a  beautiful  blue  diamond.  
 Before  I  could  lose  the  other,  I  got  a  hold  of  this  anti-biotic  recomended  by  my  LFS  (Mr.  Peter  Dias  some  of  you  know  him.)  I  followed  the  following  directions:
 Sepereted  the  fist  to  a  2x1x1  tank  with  a  corner  filter  and  a  areator  temp  REDUCED  to  26-27ish.  (Don't  know  why.)
 no  Lights  (Don't  know  why.)
 and  250mg  of  this  Anti-biotic  mixed  in  a  cup  of  water,  
 50-60%  WC  after  2  days.  and  kept  the  fish  seperate  for  a  week...
 [Main  tank  was  also  administered  with  a  250  mg  capsule  of  this  as  precaution  and  I  do  WC  30-50%  daily  in  it...no  change  to  that  schedule.  ]
 
 now  she  is  fine  in  the  other  tank  it  been  a  while  and  she  had  become  jet  black  while  the  treatment!!  with  both  eyes  popping  and  looked  like  it  has  cataract  or  something!!  I  am  glad  it  is  alive,  but  i  lost  a  beautiful  Blue  Diamond  
 
   Sad  
 
 Send  me  an  SMS  :  9850064528  I'll  get  back  to  you  with  the  medicine  name  in  the  evening  when  I  get  home...
 thanks

 Hi,
 
   
                                                 
Quote:                
The  tank  temperature  is  kept  at  30  degree  celcius.  The  tank  size  is  2x2x2  with  6  discus.  The  sixe  of  discus  is  around  3-4  inch.  I  do  20  %  water  chnage  every  day.
 I  feed  them  goat  heart  in  the  morning  &  tetrabits  in  the  evening.                

 
 Everything  seems  fine  but  the  reason  for  disease  is  your  water  condition  only.  Toomanyfishes  says  write  thats  a  Teramycin.  For  white  spot  best  use  salt  &  heater  treatment.  About  Pop  Eye  I  don't  know  anything  (not  found  this  disease  in  any  of  my  tank  from  my  5  years  hobby).
 
 This  is  not  a  very  serious  problem.  You  can  save  your  discus  with  little  care.
 
 Good  Luck  &  let  us  know  the  result.

 Thanks  you  all  very  much,
 
 The  discus  has  still  swollen  eye  &  stays  in  corner  &  not  eating  
 I  had  put  methylene  blue  to  take  care  of  white  spot  problem  
 I  had  also  put  salt  to  take  care  of  pop  eye  as  suggested  in  one  of  the  forum  topic
 
 Is  tetramacyin  a  general  drug  &  availbale  in  medical  stores  or  is  it  especially  for  fishes.
 What  is  the  dose  to  be  given  ?

 Its  a  general  Anti-biotic,  just  get  it  from  the  local  chemist.
 I  used  250mg  for  my  2x1x1  tank  for  the  first  2  days.
 Thats  1  250mg  capsule,  mix  it  in  a  cup  of  water  first.

 Temperature  of  the  tank  is  now  31-32  degree  celcius
 I  have  given  250mg  of  dose  every  day  in  last  two  days  of  Tetramycin  with  2  spoon  of  salt  &  methylene  blue.
 Feeding  them  only  Tetrabits  at  this  point  of  time   as  the  goat  heart  makes  the  water  cloudy.
 
 Any  more  care  I  need  to  take  kindly  advice.
