PostPosted: Thu Apr 24, 2008 4:14 pm Post subject: discus skin disease Reply with quote

 one  of  my  adult  ocean  blue  discus  has  got  a  skin  infection  that  looks  like  a  burn  mark  running  on  both  sides.  On  close  examination  i  can  see  some  white  fuzzy  stuff  falling  from  the  rash  portion.  He  certainly  does  not  look  normal.  His  clean  looks  have  gone  and  shows  dark  distress  looks.  His  fins  are  not  clamped  and  there  is  movement,  but  the  movements  are  not  too  normal.  Breathing  is  normal.
 
 This  fish  was  a  part  of  adult  discus  group  that  was  moved  from  the  primary  tank  to  accomodate  a  breeding  pair.  This  fish  was  active  when  in  the  primary  tank  and  was  eating  the  eggs.  I  moved  him  along  to  another  tank  with  juvenilles  and  he's  been  there  for  the  last  three  weeks.  This  new  tank  was  certainly  overcrowded  with  about  12  discus  (tank  size  3'x1.5'x1.5').  I  ensured  a  canister  filter  was  running  alongwith  the  sponge  filter  and  daily  water  changes  were  made.  I  noticed  this  problem  day  before  yesterday  and  i  moved  him  back  to  the  old  tank.  In  order  the  egg  laying  pair  do  not  bully  him  i  also  added  another  adult  alongside.
 
 Started  Dosing  melafix  for  the  last  two  days  with  major  water  changes.  Today  i  see  the  rash  is  better  and  does  not  look  too  red  as  it  was  two  days  back.  But  my  new  concern  is  all  these  four  adult  discus  are  not  eating  anything  since  he  was  introduced.  I  can  see  fuzzy  scales  still  falling  and  lying  on  the  bottom.
 
 All  fishes  are  fed  BHM.  Is  this  a  fungal  infection  or  bacterial  infection.  Any  medications?

 What  is  the  size  of  this  fish  ?  how  long  is  this  fish   with  you  ?  is  this  fish  eating  well  ?  
 
 Discus  are  very  sensitive  to  change  in  surrounding  ,  this  problem  I  think  you  notice  after  shifting  this  fish  to  other  tank  .  
 
 Try  PP  treatment  dosage  @200mg  for  100  ltrs  for  4  hrs  ,  after  4  hrs  make  100%  WC  and  do  the  same  treatment  on  day  2  &  3  again  .  Before  starting  this  treatment  ,  need  to  remove  the  bioload  in  tank   by  doing  WC  .  measure  the  dose  correctly  .  in  case   if  you  have  put  formalin  in  this  tank  earlier  ,  then  don't  carry  this  treatment  .  Mixing  of  PP  &  Formalin  is  toxic  to  fish  .
 
 Try  to  post  the  pic  of  this  discus  .  
 
 Thanks

 PP  -  Potassium  Permaganate  (  KMNO4)  ,  it  is  an  oxidising  agent  .

 Hellooo  my  dear  friend..I  am  very  well  here  in  m'bai  just  a  lil  busy  and  was  not  coming  online...
 
 B  furan  is  good  but  i  guess  as  he  is  getting  recovery  by  melafix  i  guess  other  shotgun  medications  are  not  needed  at  the  moment..  i  guess  observation  for  a  couple  of  days  more  would  be  ok...  
 
 As  for  other  fishes  not  eating  is  maybe  as  they  are  recent  ly  moved  so  give  em  some  time  to  settle  adn  would  start  eating...
