 Let  us  know  about  Water  condition,  Filtration  system,  Temp.  of  the  tank,  no.  of  feeding  times.
 
 Is  it  happened  suddenly  or  just  after  buying  !!  
 
 Give  little  details  about  your  fishes  !!  Also  if  possible  some  pictures  too.

 I  think  this  is  common  with  discus.  Some  of  my  discus  dont  eat  tetra  bits  and  show  no  interest  towards  it  while  others  do.
 
 One  of  them  used  to  eat  it  earlier  but  now  stopped.  But  it  eats  other  food.

 when  fishes  stop  feeding  tetrabits  ,  i  had  stopped  feeding(not  even  GHM)  them  for  2-3  days  and  then  started  giving  tetrabits  in  small  quantity  ,then  they  ate  it  like  a  pig,,,,,,,,,
 
 Moral  whenever  Discus  are  hungry  they  will  eat  anything  ,
 
 This  worked  for  me  ,  you  can  also  give  it  a  chance

 Hi  Darshan,
 Have  you  dewormed  your  fish  lately?  If  not  try  it  out.  If  your  discus  are  doin  well  with  other  foods,  dont  bother  to  feed  tetra  bits.  Any  food  is  good  food  if  eaten  with  relish,  I  say.
 
 Cheers

 If  your  BDs  has  grown  from  1.5  inch  to  3.5  inch  in  just  4  months  is  not  bad  ,  don't  worry  they  will  start  eating  tetra  bits  one  day  .  Before  feeding  tetra  bits  try  to  soak  it  in  water  for  few  minutes  and  then  feed  them  ,  or  mix  tetra  bits  with  other  food  and  feed  them  .
 
 
 
 Thanks

 SHIVA  sir  is  talking  about  GHM  or  BHM  ,,,,why  dont  you  try  this(BHM/GHM)  food  for  your  discus  ,  its  good  for  their  growth  ,full  of  protiens  highly  nutritious
 
 since  in  4  months  you  raised  your  discus  from  1.5  to  3.5  ,  i  am  sure  with  in  few  months  if  you  start  feeding  GHM/BHM  they  will  grow  full  size................All  The  Best
 
 and  one  more  thing  i  would  like  to  add  ,  discus  loves  varity  in  their  food  ,so  please  give  them  different  varaity  in  food  if  possible,,,,,like  hikari  bio  gold  (as  mentioned  above),  frozen  artemia  ,  tertabits  etc
