 Need  more  WC.............I  think  it  happens  due  to  poor  quality  of  water........
 
 >  Go  for  80%  WC  min  3  times  in  a  week  -  Start  right  now  (mind  it  water  should  be  Cholrine  free)
 
 >  Stop  feeding  for  few  days
 
 >  Let  us  know  the  status
 
 
 Also  update  us  about  u  r  feeding  schedule  &  Filtration  system.......

i  have  a  4ft(L)*1.5ft(W)*2ft(H),  presently  having  7  discus,                  

 what  are  the  size  of  these  discus  .

1  discus  has  a  CHIPPED  EYE  and  the  other  discus  has  a  bit  cloudy  EYES,  can  u  please  suggest  me  a  treatment  which  can  cure  my  discus  and  get  them  back  to  normal,                  

 When  you  come  across  any  problems  in  Discus  ,  you  should  try  to  find  out  for  possible  cause  for  the  problem  .  Discus  eyes  will  be  cloudy  or  translucent  due  to  below  reasons  .
 1)  Poor  water  quality  in  the  aquarium  .
 2)Insufficient  Vitamins  in  Diet  -  lack  of   Vitamin  A  .
 3)Bacterial  infection  .
 4)  Sometimes  due  to  heavy  bioload  in  tank  ,  biofilteration  can  produce  a  lot  of  acids  .  over  time  ,  these  acids  cause  the  Ph  drops  .  some  times  lower  Ph  may  also  cause  the  cloudy  eyes  problems  to  discus  .
 
 In  your  case  you  are  feeding  3  times  a  day  and  one  of  your  feed  is  Artemia  .  Frozen  artemia   (  dead  ones  )  left  over  in  tank  will  pollute  the  water  fast  .  Best  treatment  is  to  go  for  more  frequent  WC  instead  of  25%  twice  in  7  days  ,  this  should  cure  the  cloudy  eyes  or  else  we  need  to  shift  the  fish  in  to  clinical  tank  to  treat  with  Antibiotics  .

also  how  often  do  i  have  to  perform  water  change?  i  am  presently  doing  a  25%  water  change  2  times  a  week  is  it  ok?                  

 Since  you  are  not  feeding  animal  heart  ,  you  do   75%  twice  a  week  .  Now  you  are  doing  25%  twice  a  week  .switch  over  to  tetra  bits  and  hikari  discus  Biogold  .  
 
 
 
                                                 
Quote:                
how  many  discus  can  my  tank  hold?                

 In  48x18x24  size  tank  you  can  keep  12  discus  of   4  inch  till  they  grows  to  Adult  size  .

 Hi  Shiva!
 Good  to  know  someone  who  is  breeding  Discus-the  king  of  Aquarium.
 It  is  hard  to  find  discus  in  delhi  &  even  if  there  are,  lfs  in  delhi  charge  a  high  premium  on  them.

 its  better  to  put  a  whole  tank  picture  and  some  close  up's.  that  will  help  the  experts  to  guide  you  the  wright  way.
 moreover,  do  introduce  yourself  and  update  your  location.
