 Hi!  All,  I  am  having  4  redmelon  discus  around  3.5  inch  length  brought  on  1.7.2017.  Two  are  not  taking  food.  I  am  feeding  them  with  Hellopets  Discus  bites.  I  have  also  given  them  24hrs  tetracycline  bath(250mg  capsule  for  1/2  bucket  of  water  with  1/2  table  spoon  salt).  Externally  all  look  nice.  Among  two  of  the  discus  one  has  become  weak  and  moves  slowly  near  the  surface  of  the  aquarium.   The  tank  mates  are  two  small  red  swordtails.  live  feed  not  available.  tried  freezed  dry  tubifix  worms,  but  not  successful  in  feeding  them.kindly  guide  me.
 Pradeep,
 Vasco,  Goa

 How  big  is  the  tank?
 What  type  of  filter  are  you  using?
 What  is  the  water  temperature?
 Did  you  cycle  the  tank  before  adding  discus?

 The  tank  is  2feet  in  length  and  1.5  in  height.  Its  molded  tank  with  top  filter.  Temp  28°C  maintained  using  heater.  The  tank  was  set  and  kept  ready  with  continuous  filtration  4  days  prior  to  addition  of  fish(Discus).  After  adding  discus,  two  swordtails  were  added  4days  later.

 What  about  water  changes?  looks  like  the  tank  is  not  cycled.  Discus  are  very  sensitive  fish,  they  are  not  suitable  for  beginners.  wait  till  some  discus  experts  respond.
