    Quick update. All discus still alive. Currently treating 2 in quarantine tank for hexamita with heat treatment. Rest of the group eating and looking well. Have done the heat treatment before with 2 and have to say 5 days at 95f works wonders if you see white stringy poop and not eating. Here's some pics

    Awesome mike! I notice you have cyano bacteria in your tank. You have tried treating it?

    Edit: sorry just read your first post. If your battling cyano bacteria you can use erythromycin for it. It works great. All you have to do is scrub off as much as you can, do a large water change, then start treating your tank with erythromycin. API makes a erythromycin based medication you can buy. If you use it until its completely gone you shouldn't get it anymore unless brought in from another tank. It needs to be treated for 5-7 days depending on how bad it is.

    The downside to this as most meds do, is that it can mess with your biological bacteria. I personally did not experience any effect on mine though....

    Yeah unfortunately i do and have been battling it for a couple months now it sucks
    I think I'm going to try the blackout method today for 3 days and do a large wc before and after. Nitrates seem to stick around 5 to 10 ppm so should hopefully do the trick.

    Well good luck with the black out method. Hopefully you have better success then I did with this method.
