 Hi,
 
 >  Is  it  happening  with  2"  Discus  Only!!  If  yes  kept  them  in  a  separate  tank  for  treatment.
 
 >  Continue  salt  treatment  and  do  WC  after  24  hrs.  And  again  add  salt.  100  gm.  per  100  ltr.
 
 >  Fix  the  Temp.  in  29  degree  (it  will  helpful  while  you  do  the  WC)
 
 >  Use  Hypo  (Sodium  Thiosulphate)  while  you  do  the  wc.  Bcz  you  don't  know  if  there  is  
      chlorine  in  your  water  or  not.
 
 >  Continue  the  treatment  3  days  and  let  us  know  the  status.  During  this  time  don't  try  to  feed  them.
 
 
 Best  of  luck  ......

 The  2'  fish  start  to  dart  around  in  the  tank  anytime  &   from  the  other  4  fishes  some  have  a  problem  of  rubbing  them  self  against  the  tank  wall  or  the  filter  pipe.  How  much  WC  has  to  be  done  after  every  24  hours  ?
 
 Thanks

 Remove  all  the  water  from  the  tank-(shut  off  the  heating  rod  before  emptying)  put  discus  in  a  bucket  for  a  while  with  airstone  running  with  air  and  add  rock  salt  1  fist  full  in  that  water
 
 Wash  the  tank  with  hot  water  and  Potassium  permengnate,  clean  the  filter  with  same  hot  water.  fill-up  the  tank  with  new  water  and  put  2  fist  full  of  rock  salt  in  it.  Put  the  filter  and  run  it  for  about  3  hrs.  
 
 Empty  all  the  salt  water  and  refill  new  water.  they  are  having  ICH  probably,  use  blue  liquid  i  cap  full-  drop  it  in  the  new  water  and  rund  the  salty  sponge  filter.  
 
 remove  1  discus  from  bucket  and  insert  it  in  the  tank.  after  10  mins  recess  add  another,  and  complete  this  process  for  all.  Next  day,  you  should  see  some  change.
 
 Always  use  old  water,  or  warm  the  water  first  let  it  cool  down  and  then  chagne  water  in  such  cases.
 
 good  luck  Thumb Up
